We all know we should perform a pre-ride check, but letís be honest, we tend to skip them from time to time (or more frequently), donít we? Weíre only human, and that silly little check before we hit the road isnít that important, is it? Itís not like weíre 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. Howís 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 youíve got your own additions to the list, add íem via the comments.
