One of the greatest fears that surfaces around traveling, especially solo travel, is that of breaking down in the middle of nowhere. It’s wise to be aware that breakdowns can occur, but it’s even better, to know that there are some easy, proactive steps to take before you leave, that minimize the chances of that happening.
While it would be nice to jump on your bike whenever you wanted to and go for a carefree ride, without having to do more than don your gear and put gas in the tank, that’s not realistic. Motorcycles are machines that wear with use. Fortunately modern motorcycles are precision built to high standards, but that doesn’t mean we should be complacent with them.
Our safety depends on all the components working together, even if we don’t know exactly what they’re doing. We do know that cables, brakes, tires, and engines wear, and depending on how much wear has occurred, we could be putting ourselves at risk without even knowing it.
A little know-how can go a long way in keeping you safe, your bike roadworthy and your ride stress free.
