We all know we should perform a pre-ride check, but let’s be honest, we tend to skip them from time to time (or more frequently), don’t we? We’re only human, and that silly little check before we hit the road isn’t that important, is it? It’s not like we’re flying an airliner thousands of feet above the ground with hundreds of people on board. While we may think that only our lives are at stake when we ride, what happens to us can affect others both directly and indirectly.

The reality is that your pre-ride check, when done regularly, only takes a few seconds to perform. You can even start it as you walk across the parking lot towards your bike. How’s that for multi-tasking? So, read on to see what we, here at the hallowed halls of MO, think you should do before every ride. If you’ve got your own additions to the list, add ’em via the comments.

Breaks (leakage, function test, bolts)
Tires (rips, tares, wear, pressure)
Lights (tail light, brake light, headlight, turnsignals)
Chain and sprockets (wear, lube, tension, bolts)
Throttle tube (snap back in all directions of the handlebars)
Engine oil level

Good to go :)
