Stay Safe While Riding Your Motorcycle This Cold Season

Some people choose to store their bikes for the winter, but that doesn't mean you have to. As the cold winter weather gets closer, prepare your bike for winter rides. Best 4 Engines in Denton has some tips to help you prepare for cold weather rides.

Road Dangers

The fall and winter temperatures cause changes in the road conditions. Be prepared for these different and sometimes dangerous conditions before hitting the road. Remember that the beautiful fall foliage can also mean danger. Avoid riding over piles of leaves because you never know what can be hiding under them. If the weather has been rainy, these piles of leaves can also become very slick. If the weather is particularly bad, consider leaving your bike at home. Not only will roads be more dangerous, your visibility will also be compromised.

Wear the Right Gear

Your motorcycle riding gear shouldn't be the same all year. Do always wear a helmet, long sleeves, long pants and boots, but adapt your gear to the weather conditions of the season. As it gets colder, you can start wearing your leather jacket which you probably stored for the summer. If it's not very cold yet, you can dress in layers to keep you warm during the cold mornings and shed some layers during the warm afternoons. Don't forget to carry rain gear with you just in case you come across a storm.

Prepare Your Motorcycle

Your motorcycle also needs proper preparation before taking on the colder weather. Check your fluids and top off whatever is running low. Change your oil and oil filter if it's time for your routine oil change. Check the tires and make sure they're at the right level of pressure. Check on your antifreeze to ensure it's still working.
