Mistakes, negligence, and wrong choice of OEM and aftermarket motorcycle parts, as well as accessories, can trigger its wrath. To circumvent this we have to design an action plan. What can we do?
Accidents come when you least expect them. But still, we have to be prepared so as not to aggravate our circumstances to our disadvantage.
Here are some tips to all the riders and motorists out there:
1. Choose quality. Buy only the best quality motorcycle parts you can afford. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, it is critical to the motorcycle’s operation. Second, there is no need to save a few bucks on cheap yet defective parts. Never sacrifice quality. That’s the lesson you have to learn early on. You must not wait for a circumstance to prove the same because that circumstance can be fatal.
2. Keep safe. Use protective gear and apparel to protect you from head to toe. It includes a high-quality motorcycle helmet, jacket, gloves, vest, eyewear, pants, socks, boots, and the likes. Be sure they are durable and comfortable so as to withstand the pressure and momentum in riding.
3. Maintain and repair. Before you leave for your adventure, check for some leaks and defects in the motorcycle then repair them right away to avoid further trouble. Check it with diligence. Regular repairs are also necessary to be sure of the motorcycle’s condition and safety.
4. Be prepared. Be sure that the tank is full and is more than enough to carry you to your destination and back. The situation when you need something right in the middle of the race or on a busy riding day will piss you off. Always prepare and be ready. That is the best weapon you can use in any given circumstance.
5. Insured it. Get your motorcycle insurance. Just in case you encounter a collision with another automobile, side-swept a person, or other forms of compensatory instances, the insurance company will answer for the damages.
We must realize that everything is a compromise. As a consequence, it is vital therefore to be careful and to understand the implications. An ounce of prevention is a pound of cure. Though said maxim is already ages-old, still, it has a perpetual stigma.
