Torque your fork tube clamps

both upper and lower sometime this week.
I'll feel better for you knowing they're torqued properly.

Don't stop with just the fork tubes. Go through the entire bike.

Anytime bikes are mentioned.

But it will be worse to hear of anyone crashing due to some loose screws. Check them screws, especially if you ride a twin.

Good advice, also, check those damn cable nubson the clutch cable, like i posted earlier, ... scary... come to think of it i need to check all the crucial stuff on mine.. don't want the front wheel to pass me in traffic...

Hey, wait, this is taking all the fun out of true motorcycle riding... It's all about having the little odds and ends fly around when you least expect it. J/K

Hey, anyone every read thebook, Zen and the art of Motorcycle maintenance?

That book took me forever to read! I loved it though, it really gets your brain muscle a workout.

Read it a LONG time ago. I've forgot most of it now, like where I even put it.
