Pre-ride Check List
Here is a quick list of items to check before each ride. It may save you some grief far away from home!
Tires: Check that the Cold Inflation pressure is to specs. Also, rotate each tire and look for nails, cracks, or damage. If there is 2/32" or less tread, or over 4 years old, replacement is recommended.
Check for Loose Fasteners: Use your fingers to check over important nuts and bolts to make sure nothing is loose.
Fluid Levels: A quick Check of Oil Level, Brake Fluid, and Coolant only takes a minute.
Hoses: Run your hand along brake lines, and coolant hoses checking for bulges, cracks, or any fluid leaks.
Suspension: Inspect for any damage, and run your fingers around seals to see if they are oily, which could indicate a blown seal.
Lights: Turn on the ignition, and check headlight, tail and brake light, and turn signals for proper operation.
Now, you are ready to go.
As always, ride safe, and have fun!
