Motorcycle Safety: Pre-Ride T Clock Inspection
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation created this mnemonic device to guide a motorcyclist’s pre-ride safety check. We thought it was worth sharing with you.
Tires & Wheels: Check tire pressure and treads. Make sure spokes are tight and intact and that brakes have a firm feel.
Controls: Check levers, cables, hoses and throttles.
Lights & Electrics: Check brake lights, taillights, headlights, lenses, reflectors, battery and wiring to ensure no fraying, pinching or corrosion.
Oil: Check oil and fluid levels, and ensure there are no leaks.
Chassis: Check suspension, chains and belts, fasteners, the steering head and swingarm bearings.
Kickstand: check the sidestand and centerstand for correct retracting and no bends or damage
