Were they in the white vehicle that slammed on their brakes and swerved when we passed them on a straight in the opposite lane?

Desmo is fine, thanks for asking. Run over a piece of metal that was sitting on top of the white paint between lanes. Happened as I turned my head to look for traffic before exit on I-10 and when I turned my head again I had no time to react.

Not a scratch from it and tires are ok. So nothing to worry about.

Exclamation Bike inspection

I suggest we have Bike inspection before the ride starts. Just someone that knows basics about bikes...does a walk around while having cofee...basic stuff like:

1) Chain slack
2) Tire tread
3) lights
4) make sure tags are secured (we loose one every ride)
5) look for oil/ coolant leaks.


BTW! there was a guy on a black/yellow cbr f4I that had a flat spot on his tire and he asked if there was enough tire for the rest of the ride, i told him no. He did not question anyone or BS..he did the right thing by heading home..

6) Bring some tools
I don't see how this could be implemented. I recall some one telling me (each is a big boy and by that they should know what's up)

I like this idea, I know we all want to catch a ride even if our bike is missing 1 or 2 screws somewhere.. however we have to consider that in case our does not put to the task, we will be slowing the rest of the ride down.

as posted in the OP, it's worth to catch the ride as long as your bike is "road worthy" and by road worthy is not just that it can run but that it also complies with laws in case cops want to start as seen in this ride.
Safety is #1 concern if not on the bike's rider/owner as much as the ride leader(s)/organizer(s).
let's face it guys, no one likes people going down in their ride nor getting any kind of problems with their bikes.
A mechanical failure is that; and even though some are not preventable as a 2k mile chain, a lot others are.

I agree. I never wash my bike but I always do pre-ride checks (tire pressure, check the M effing chain slack and adjust, oil chain, etc..).
We definitely need to get better about making sure the basics are in order before going out.
On the tires.....if ya gotta ask.......

I do not think implementation of a pre ride check would be that hard. Set the expectation in the post for the ride and that would probably prompt most to look over thier bikes before coming. If not, we usually have enough time to catch or correct small issues before we go out.

could be possible, but would have to have expectations about it before hand. Could be a sort of maint class right before...

Oh that rider was Paul.. He was but knew what was up!! He was thankful in the end because its better to miss a ride than have to pay for a tow..

Just some things you can't prevent...like Chris's sad excuse for a street bike.!!! He likes buying tools at the gas station to collect on his rides in the country!!

You would think that you shouldn't have to tell someone to properly maintain/check their bike that they most likely will be riding in the triple digits...

I would suggest referring to your service manual as they have a chapter just for periodic maintenance. You can download them or buy a hard copy
