In Nainital Bike Trip Preparations, we made a rough plan to visit Agra, Nainital, Munsiyari, Kausani, Ranikhet, and Lucknow for 15 days. I know this is a bit long list for a honeymoon trip but it was our first mistake. Then we started packing literally, we tried to accommodate everything in our luggage bags. Finally, we had to cut down a chunk of them.
After our marriage we chose to ride on our honeymoon trip, there were a lot of places in our mind, Kashmir, Goa, Kanyakumari but we chose Uttarakhand for some reasons, firstly my wife never been on a 500+ kilometers ride before, then I was not used to with 2000+ kilometers ride and finally it was our honeymoon so we did not want to be stressed out throughout the ride. But, who knows what is going to happen!
I was used to watching a lot of moto vloggers on youtube, so I purchased the Scoyco tank bag and Cramster saddle bag for our motorcycle Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 to organize all luggage which also ensures the proper balance of the motorcycle. I did not have any idea how to choose them, so I made a lot of mistakes and wasted my money on the Tank bag which I had never used after this trip. The review will come of those bags in some days.

By now, you already figured out that our Nainital bike trip preparations were kind of hectic. On Day 1 we did not have a night halt which was our biggest mistake in the whole trip. As a result, riding for almost 36 hours without any experience, was a real pain.

I had borrowed a backrest from one of my colleagues which helped my wife a lot during the trip. This trip helped us to gain some experience on long distance touring and also boosted to ride often.
