There is no certain answer to how long the virus can survive on the surface. But it may persist for a few hours to several days. Few touchpoints will be directly in contact with the body. Touchpoints such as Handle Bars, Key Hole, Fuel Tank, Tank covers, Kicker, etc. And it is requisite that these points of contact are properly sanitized.
Social Distance is also for bikes, While you park your two-wheeler make sure that your bike doesn’t lean on any surface. When you are done with shopping groceries, and after stepping out of the shop use sanitizer before you start driving home. Once you reach home, you should sanitize your bike entirely with a sanitizing spray so that you don't get caught of any germs. And during this pandemic, it's good that you park your bike under sunlight.
While you are out shopping carry your bags rather than expecting shops to provide you with bags. Even if you carry bags there is a high chance that you may get affected by the virus. Sanitize your bag with a spray or wash it soon after reaching home.
