When planning for a bike ride it is important to make sure that your bike is ready to ride. My name is Joe, I enjoy riding my motorcycle and I learned this lesson the hard way. Today’s biker tip is simple, but yet can save you a lot aggravation if you will take my advice. Today’s tip is this; make sure that your battery has a good charge.

Here is a real life example of what can happen if your battery on your bike is not charged properly.
Upon coming in from my daily swim the other day, I asked my wife Jen if she would like to go for a ride on the bike after the dew dries off the streets. She said yes, that she would like to go for a ride; it would be the first time that she had been out on the bike with me. I had bought the bike back in November, and told her that when I felt confident enough that we would take a ride together.
So, I took my bike out of the garage and got ready to leave at about 11:45 after we enjoyed an early lunch. It took us around 30 minutes or so to get ready, since I have a disability, and Jen had never used her brand new motorcycle outfit, helmet, boots, air vest, and accessories. After getting all suited up, we proceeded to take our bike ride off into the sunset only to realize that the battery was flat. What a big let down, my wife’s first time on the bike with me and the bike would not crank.
We went back into the house and disrobed (another 30 minute process), then had a cup of tea and a laugh. Jen had some instructions for me, which is our tip for today, she told me, before I start to get ready for a ride I want to hear the bike crank.
That is it for today, I’m Joe Upton, before planning a bike ride, make sure the battery is charged enough to start your bike, it could save you some disappointment.
