I want to remind everyone that you should conduct an inspection at a minimum before you ride your motorcycle. Regarding the tires, be sure to always check the tread and air pressure. This will help keep traction to the roadway surfaces. On the controls, you want to look at the handlebars, levers, pedals, cables hoses and throttle. Your handle bars should always be straight, turn freely and your grips should be secure. Checking all of these allows your motorcycle to operate in the safest manner.
Oils should be inspected next. You want to not only make sure nothing is leaking but also make sure you have enough fluids including hydraulics, coolants and do not forget the fuel. You do not want to find yourself without gas, sitting on the side of the road.
The chassis is the next part of the inspection before you begin on your ride. Things you want to look out for are the front forks, shocks and the swingarm bushing/bearings. You want to make sure all have proper pressure for the smoothest ride possible. Finally, you want to check the stand. You want to make sure there are no cracks and that the springs are in place.
