Hey all,

So who conducts a pre-ride inspection of your motorcycle before every ride?

I check my tyre pressure every 2 weeks (I have recurring reminders) because I don’t have a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).  But aside from that, I don’t check anything. 🙈

If you do check your bike over before a ride, this video might assist.  Check your bike over in 90 seconds!

Nope. I get on and ride. Haven't checked pressures since June. Haven't checked shock since June. I have TPMS (which is always on my screen) so go by that. When it starts to feel too soft, I pump up the shock.

Well, that's an idea I've never heard of. 🙂

I'm too lazy for that.

Many years ago Kay and I bought a VW Kombi from a mate going overseas. He used to get home in the afternoon and check the front panel for stone chips. The slightest hint of a stone chip and he'd get out his little air brush kit and make it all new again.

When we bought his Kombi I made a life-long commitment to laziness that I've mostly managed to keep until this very day. 😇

I check tyre pressures every couple of weeks.  I do check over the bikes for anything obvious (oil leak or fluid etc) then fire it up. I will often scroll through the dash displays (if the bike has them) before heading off.  Oh, and check the fuel.  The only other check I do is my main three, wallet, phone, smokes. ðŸ˜‰

I am much more of an old motorcycle person and I love working on them. The Dark Horse is my first ever new bike and I also like having one bike that I can just push the button and go.

I look at it and say, bikes still there, no scratches, needs a bath, ok let's go.
In the colder weather (less than 4 degrees) the TPMS says that rear tyre pressure is low (not critical just low) but it soon inflates as I ride it and the pressure increases as the tyre warms up 😃

Aren’t we lazy hey? 😬 Not one member so far, check their bike properly before setting off.  😆 

I guess our bikes are more reliable these days.

Read your first statement in this post and was going to come back against "properly". But then you set yourself straight in the second statement.

Nothing to check if something's reliable!

Aha, a posty.  

I got up this morning and thought of this thread - checked the fuel gauge and went and got petrol.
At the petrol pump I looked at the front wheel - yep, it was still there 😃  Great!! - onward.

I'm glad too. For a while there I thought this guy might have been Crash on the day he got his nick-name. 🙂
