March is here, meaning the sun is starting to shine, and snow and ice are melting away. If you are a motorcycle lover, it is almost riding season. At DePaulo Agency, providing motorcycle insurance in Scotia, NY, we want to help you stay safe when riding your bike. And one of the best ways to do this is to properly prepare your motorcycle for riding weather.
Here are a few tips on how to get your bike ready for the first ride of the year.
Inspect Your Motorcycle For Signs of Damage or Rust
If your bike has been stored, the first thing you want to do is wash the bike and look for signs of damage or rust as you do. If there is any rust or damage, you need to get the damage repaired before you take your bike out.
Inflate Your Tires on the Bike
The next thing you will want to do to get your motorcycle ready to ride is inflate the tires on your bike. Find out what PSI is recommended for your tires, and then ensure your tires are inflated to the correct setting.
Get Your Motorcycle Professionally Serviced
Lastly, if your motorcycle has been winterized or is due for service, you will want to get your motorcycle serviced by a motorcycle mechanic before riding your bike.
The final thing you should do before heading out on your motorcycle is review your motorcycle insurance policy. Ensure that your policy still meets your needs. If it does not, or you are looking to purchase a new policy in Scotia, NY, DePaulo Agency can help you. Call us now to obtain an estimate for a new motorcycle insurance policy.
