  • Motorcycle travelling

    In 2015 and 2016, I rode my RoadStar from Richardson, Tx. to OKC and followed Route 66 to the Arizona/California border. In 2017, I tore my shoulder and couldn't ride, and, while being prepped for the surgery to repair/rebuild my shoulder in early 2018, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, which requires daily insulin injections. 2018 was spent recovering from the mid-year surgery. I want to go on another tour via motorcycle, but the necessity of keeping my insulin below 80 degrees is putting such an endeavor in doubt. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can travel by motorcycle and still carry my insulin safely, or am I limited to only day trips?

    Can't you get your insulin along the way in your travels?

        I have a buddy that needs to use it also and there is a little thing that looks like a thermos to keep it cool. Not sure what it is called. But know they are available.

          Dry ice with insulin in a thermos?

            I use this to keep my drinks cold. This is the best product I've ever used. I can take a cold soda out of the fridge, add a few ice cubes and will literary still have ice cubes in it the next day. The picture was taken with a standard sheet of paper behind it, so very compact to fit in saddlebags. Highly recommended.

              Dry ice..get it free at most any grocery store or supermarket. Just go to the butcher shop or meat department and ask, they will usually give you some free. Will last for days if kept in a small insulated container.

                I'm type 2 and I carry my stuff in a small pouch that made for two small dry ice packs. It'll last a while, however, you eventually have to refreeze the packs. Not a big deal.

                  That’s not dry ice if you can re freeze it. Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide.

                    My bad, it must be blue ice, then. The ones that come in a plastic bag you can refreeze. Either way, it's a good way to travel with your insulin.
