Victoria Day Weekend is the official kick-off to a Saskatchewan Summer. Outdoor activities are top of mind this time of year, as Saskatchewanians get out into the wilderness and explore the backcountry. Perhaps you will spend part, or much, of your long weekend behind bars. Hopefully so.
By late May, many riders have already performed their pre-season mechanical inspections but what about those daily or mid-trip pre-ride checks? Who knows what may have changed since you parked your bike beside the tent, outside the hotel, or in the parking lot of your favourite retail stop. A quick walk-around check before jumping back on, regardless of where you are, and a more thorough routine check before each ride, can be the difference between a great ride and one that ends poorly.
Avid Moto-Camper & Motorcycle Instructor David Parker takes us through his routine inspection checklist.
