Motorcycle pre-ride checklist
Riding motorbikes can be unsafe, but there are ways to minimize the risk. Following this checklist will also ensure you wont have to suffer the humiliation of walking your bike home, while people on the road yell “How much?!” after you (it IS Qurbani eid, after all).
1) Check your tyres for leaks, foreign objects stuck in them, as well as tyre pressure. They're the most vital part on your two-wheelers, so even if you don't look after anything else, do look after the tyres.
2) Cables and controls. Check for leaks along the brake lines, and make sure everything is well connected.
3) Brakes. Before rolling off, pump brakes a couple of times to check if the bike stops when you tell it to. Apply the front brake and push the bike forward. The front wheel should not move at all. Same with the rear.
4) Check your drive-chain. If the chain is not well lubricated or set in place, it can cause problems. The maintenance periods are few and far between, but its always good to check.
