Cool tips we've learned along the road........

I was thinking the other day this might be a cool/informative thread. Kinda like a "Hints from Heloise", for bikers, (For those of us old enough to remember that...... if not, Google her, lol!).

I'll start it out with one that I was reminded of again recently from way back.......

"When approaching an unknown or unfamiliar curve in the twisties and there's a buttload of skid marks leading into it, SLOW THE EFF DOWN MAN! There's a good chance it's tighter then it looks!



"Life long student at the School of Hard Knocks!"

If you hear something"different" from your motor, don't keep going, thinking "I might have been imagining that." Stop and check it out.

Log your service dates when you changed oils, tires, batteries, etc. Don't leave it to memory, especially mine.
