Last updated on 21-Nov-2023 , By Saleh

Riding motorcycles in groups or motorcycle traveling in groups is a common practice in the world and also has vast popularity in Bangladesh. Though Bangladesh is a small country our riders are not so habituated to riding solo and feel more comfortable riding in groups. Hence often our riders hang on long trips with various sizes of motorcycle groups. Hence how is that, does group size matters on long motorcycle trips? So here I am Saleh, let’s find the inner realities.

Does Group Size Matters On Long Motorcycle Trips?


Traveling with motorcycles or simply riding motorcycles with groups of friends is fun. That is literally a joyful part of motorcycling as well as considered a prevalent social affair among motorcycle riders. Further, riding in groups increases the fun factors of traveling or hangouts or simply while time spending. Thus we in Bangladesh often used to join in long motorcycle trips in groups.

Consequently, frequently the group size varies and sometimes people roll with small groups and sometimes it expands unintentionally or simply without any planning. Hence unavoidably while riding on long motorcycle trips the size of the group impacts the ride both positively and negatively which is also the same in other phenomena of the entire travel affairs. So how is that? However here we have some observations on that.

First, on long motorcycle trips like trips for multiple days, the traveling group size really matters significantly. If that trip is not initiated or organized by any formal organizations like motorcycle clubs, motorcycle companies, or any event management team then surely a large group most possibly impacts negatively on the entire trip. On the counter, in such formally organized trips small group of riders will not bring good results either in the event or in the rides.

Afterward, leading and controlling concerns can be significant issues not even on long motorcycle trips but also on day-long rides if the group size is larger. Its true small group of riders can be controlled very easily, less effortlessly, and safely. So if you are traveling with friends casually for long motorcycle trips then a small group is always preferable. On the other hand, if your team members are quite equally skilled and disciplined enough then the team size can be larger.

In the long motorcycle trips arranging food and accommodation everywhere properly is a big issue and not always so easy in Bangladesh. So a small team of riders can avail advancement of arranging quality food and accommodations almost everywhere. On the other hand, larger teams can avail the benefits of cost minimization due to bulk purchases and bulk expenses.

In every motorcycle trips whether it is short or long motorcycle trip safety is a big concern in Bangladesh. It’s not even road safety but also safety concerns for the riders, luggage, as well as motorcycles, that are issues here. Hence small team is more safely manageable on the roads but on the counter, large teams have the benefit of better safety for the team members, their luggage, and the motorcycles even in uneven places.

In long motorcycle trips, a large group of riders literally slows down the traveling pace in every aspect. Large groups absolutely consume a huge time, hamper time management, and accordingly often the trip length or thoroughness shrinks to a compromised level. On the counter small groups also can often skip visiting unsecured places due to safety.

Lastly, fun, enjoyment, misunderstanding, etc. are interrelated parts of long motorcycle trips or traveling with motorcycles in groups. In moderately large groups, the fun factor increases no doubt but spending own time with closer mates often needs to sacrifice. Further, misunderstanding, personal conflict, egoism, etc. are common elements while riding in large groups and are almost unavoidable, especially on long trips.

So you can see guys the true impacts of group size on long motorcycle trips. Literally, group size matters on long motorcycle trips though both the small and large groups of riders have their own benefits and demerits in case of long motorcycle rides. Hence we should be caring about determining comfortable sizes for the traveling group for certain long motorcycle rides and that is a part of good planning and then good traveling, that’s it. So see you next, thanks.
