When i went to Bangkok then Phuket this New Year then i did not think about the important things that need to be remembered before going on a long trip. Although Me and my friends(Pallav and Umesh) did not gone on a long ride as Phuket is a small island. Well today i am writing this post to let you know about the must remembered things before going on a bike trip.
Most important Things to Check Before Starting a Long Motorcycle Trip
Make sure both tires are properly inflated, using an air pressure monitor that you bring with you on rides. Don’t risk riding on tires that might need replacement; if suspect a tire will not last long enough for a ride, have it replaced.
Are your cables (clutch and brakes) and controls intact and working?
Make sure your headlights (high & low beam), turn signals, and brake lights work.
Oils & fluids
Check everything from engine oil and coolant to brake fluid.
Ensure that the frame, suspension, chain, and fasteners are all secure and intact.
Make sure the center stand and/or side stand isn’t cracked or bent, and that springs properly hold the assembly away from the pavement when stowed.
