10 Stretches to Keep You Limber While Motorcycle Riding

We stretch before we run, we stretch before we lift weights, Rossi stretches before he rides, as does every professional motorcyclist. So why don’t you? It doesn’t matter if you’re touring, doing a track day, or riding single-track, stretching can benefit everyone by helping to give you full range of motion while also getting your muscles warmed up to work more effectively. If you’re sore after a long day of riding, stretching can help if done immediately afterwards as well as the next morning before saddling back up. You want to keep those muscles from becoming short and tight, which causes them to function less efficiently and can lead to injury. Another tip to help with muscle soreness: drink more water. Like two times more. Sore in the morning? You should have drank more water.

Necessary disclaimer: Motorcycle.com is not your mom, doctor, yoga instructor, etc. Consult a physician before doing these stretches. If your erection lasts longer than 12 hours… wait, why do you have an erection?!

We put together a list of 10 stretches that can help limber you up in all the right places before, during, or after riding your motorcycle. Okay, maybe not during. Get your yoga pants on, because it’s time to stretch!
