Before you hit the road give your bike the once-over.

* Test the lights, brakes, and turn signals.

* Check the oil and fuel levels.

* Make sure the mirrors are positioned correctly.

* Check the cables to make sure they aren't worn or frayed.

* Lube the chain and adjust it according to the manufacturer's specs.

* Try a rider-training course to brush up on your skills.

When You're Out on the Road

Let's be honest: There's a lot of stuff out there that's bigger than your bike. But there's a lot you can do to help keep yourself safe while riding.

* Always wear a helmet that fits right. Pick one that has the DOT label, which shows that it

meets federal safety standards.

* Know your bike's limits.

* Stick to the speed limit.

* Don't tailgate other vehicles.

* Use your signals.

* Be respectful of other drivers. Don't weave through traffic or drive on the shoulder.

* Make sure other drivers can see you. Don't ride in blind spots and always use your

headlights.

* Brake smart. Use both brakes at the same time, slow and steady.

Check your Bike before every ride

Pre-trip Inspections are extremely IMPORTANT
