What are the basic checks I should do before getting on my motorbike?

It’s good to get into the habit of taking a quick walk around the bike or moped before mounting it for a long or short ride. This will ensure both you and your bike are ready for the intended trip.

  • Look at tyres – pressure may need to be adjusted for longer journeys.
  • Check lights are clean and working properly
  • Check your fuel level, if there’s not enough for the intended trip plan when and where you will refuel.
