Nevertheless, you must make sure that you get it right right from the word go.
Let’s run through a checklist that you must bear in mind before hitting the road for that much longed for road trip with your friends.
A drawback you are likely to have to put up with is that a motorbike is unlikely to offer you the same storage capacity as in line with a car. A conventional motorbike would let you carry a nice rucksack over your shoulders and a saddle bag for some additional storage.
Another very common type of storage accessory for your bike is tank bags. Tanks bags may not be as common as saddle bags, but these are placed directly over the top of fuel tanks.
A tank bag may even have a glassy window which displays maps.
If it is weather protection which forms a constraint, harder bags are the right option to go for. But these need more time for installation.
If you require even more storage space, you may consider going for tail bags.
- T: Tires
The tires should be well inflated. If you carry a pressure monitor with you, that should meet its purpose.
- C is for controls. Are your entire clutch, brakes and cables operating well?
- L stands for lights. Make sure that high and low beam lights, turn indicators and tail light are all in excellent condition.
- O is for oils and fluids. You must check everything, starting from engine oil, coolant and brake fluid.
- C: Chassis. Frame, chain and fasteners should all be intact and in a great working condition.
- S: Stands. The side stands and centre stand should both not be cracked or bent. Stand springs should be in an excellent condition, such that these hold the assembly away from the pavement when you set the bike into motion.
