Can anyone tell me if there is something that gives a sense of freedom like a long motorcycle trip? In fact I remember when I was younger in the early 90’s and I read the book “Latinoamericana” by Ernesto Che Guevara. Perhaps many know him more for his film version entitled “The Motorcycle Diaries”. The story begins on January 4, 1952 when two friends start a journey from Buenos Aires (Argentina). In particular, it is the beginning of an 8000-kilometer journey of two friends: Alberto Granado, a 29-year-old biologist and Ernesto Guevara de la Serna, a 22-year-old medical student whom the whole world will know as “il Chè”.

So the book and then the film describe a journey of formation and friendship but the main topic is the exploration of the South American countries of the 1950s. Subsequently, after the journey, the two will take different paths. Alberto will go to live in Cuba where he will live for the rest of his life dying at almost 90 years old. After that Ernesto will instead undertake a political and revolutionary career by dying murdered in Bolivia in 1967.


Reading the book and then watching the film I have often wished to do a long motorcycle trip in their place. In fact, exploring new territories traveling with the wind on your face and in absolute freedom is something wonderful. In fact, the motorcycle allows you to park anywhere and travel along roads that are impossible for a car. The motorcycle trip is fascinating because motorcyclists are the modern version of the riders of the past. In fact, driving this mechanical vehicle has no limits of space and time like the riders. In fact, in the past, after a ride of tens of kilometers on horseback, the rider stopped, spread a blanket on the ground and lit a fire. So he cooked some lard and legumes and accompanied them with bread and perhaps a little cheese.

Obviously it was not a healthy and balanced diet. In fact they did not have a very long life and often suffered from food shortages. Similarly, the motorcyclist can be defined as the modern rider. So he is often forced to stop for lunch in some motorway restaurant or in a street of some city along the way to have lunch. It’s definitely not a healthy way to feed.

Therefore, unhealthy ways of eating are often used. In fact, without having precise notions of nutrition, there is a tendency to eat everything that is simple and fast, regardless of what can be harmful to health in the long run. In particular, those who travel by motorbike move at great speed but use little muscles in the game and the rest of the body. So he should establish regular sote during the trip to stretch, do a little stretch and, most importantly, hydrate. In fact, during long journeys there is a high risk of dehydration. In fact, if you are concentrated in driving you can forget about the perception of the sense of thirst and hunger. Therefore, without realizing it we could suffer a serious alteration of the water and salt balance.

For example, in the very famous movie “Easy Riders” the two protagonists are seen traveling for days on board their motorbike, eating in fast food restaurants. In other words, it was not a realistic diet. Moreover, if you do not want to have six intestinal problems such as constipation or worse, it is advisable to prepare a better meal plan before departure.

So who want to do a long motorcycle trip who wants to spend a peaceful and healthy holiday must carefully consider what to bring along as food supplies. For example, it is advisable to have fiber supplements or probiotics with you to keep the intestine in good condition. In fact, when traveling by motorcycle there is the risk of following a disordered and low-fiber diet.


So intestinal disorders are lurking. In addition to this there is the danger of not drinking regularly and neglecting the consumption of vegetables. So, there is the possibility that fruit and vegetables may be scarce in the diet. Otherwise, vegetables are more present in a home diet. In short, you have to leave after having a good supply of fiber bars or salad bags (the latter, however, must be consumed within one or two days of purchase.

It is also good to limit carbonated drinks and canned foods as much as possible. it is good to stock up on fresh food every time you enter a town. In short, if you plan to stop for the night in small hotels or campsites, I recommend choosing carefully the food to eat when possible. of water and salt balance in the body could have serious consequences on brain functions by reducing concentration in driving Consequently, it goes without saying that this would be dangerous during the journey.
