5 Things All New York Motorcyclists Must Do Before They Ride
Getting ready to ride for the season? Good for you, there are a lot of miles that need to be traveled this year. So when are you going to get the bike ready?
There are a few things that need to be done before you head out on a ride each and every time. What are those thing? For experienced riders, you probably don't need a reminder, but for those who have only been riding a short time, let's go over them.
What do you need to do before you head out on a ride, each time?
Before you head out on a ride, you should make sure that you have gas in the tank. Might seem like a simple thing, but gas is necessary.
What do you also need to check before a motorcycle ride?
Does it matter what order you check these things? No, just that you check them.
- The lights. Remember it is a legal requirement that your headlight has to be on when you are riding.
- Check the tires for proper inflation and tread. Those corners are easier to take when you have proper grip on the road.
- Check your controls, and your cables. Double check to see that everything is attached and not frayed.
- Lastly check your oil. Having issues with your oil, means that you might be calling people to come pick you up!
Check your bike, ride often and get home safe!
