Making The Most Out Of Your Next Ride

by | Jan 14, 2016 | Automotive

There’s a great big world out there full of open tarmac, freedom, bugs, headlights, street lamps, fence posts, mile markers, gas stations, mountains, oceans, bridges and streams—everything you love about the open road and what comes with riding a motorbike is waiting for you. Now if you could only get a day off from work. Finding the time for a long ride can be difficult, so we want to make sure it’s a great ride when we do. Here are a few tips on how to make the most of your ride.

Plan Accordingly

Take a look at a map, plan for gas stops, food and bathroom breaks, and take a look at the weather and so on and so forth. One sure fire way to turn a perfectly good ride into a real bummer is to get lost or be worried about directions. Simple preparations such as looking over your route for a few minutes every night for a few nights before your ride and even taking a ride you’ve done before can ensure a much more fun and relaxing ride than just ‘winging it.’

Fix Your Bike

Your bike isn’t broken, but it could probably use a few upgrades. Here are five ways to enhance your motorbike’s efficiency:

– Properly inflate the tyres—not too full and definitely not too deflated—somewhere in the 34-38 range is good.
– Replace the spark plugs, air and oil filter with recommended brands. Not all parts are made equally.
– Use the correct motorbike oil for your bike and style of riding.
– Loose chains break easier. Make sure your chain is clean and free of rust, as dirt and rust cost you horsepower.
– Adjust your throttle cable. The responsiveness of your throttle depends on how much slack your throttle cable has.

Get Comfortable

A few fixes on your bike that will improve your ride have little to do with the motor. Replacing your seat, headlight and horn all can significantly improve your ride. Make sure you get a comfortable seat. Improve your vision with a better headlight. This will not only help you see but also help you be seen. Being seen and heard are huge when it comes to your safety, so while you’re at it get a louder horn. Hopefully these tips and five ways to enhance your motorbike’s efficiency will help you take full advantage of your next day off and you have a great ride!
