  • USE THE MNEMONIC VOLTS

    You should learn how to check your motorcycle on a daily basis. Because basic checks only take a minute or so, there is no excuse not to. 

    Confidence in a motorcycle’s road worthiness, equals increased rider safety and less chance of a dangerous (poor maintenance related) situation occurring when riding. 

    If higher mileage routes and journeys are planned, then more extensive checks would be required. Daily motorcycle checks are to ensure you are happy to ride the motorcycle at the given time.

    USE THE MNEMONIC VOLTS
  • DAILY CHECKS 

    VOLTS is a useful mnemonic to remember the essential daily checks, to be carried out at the beginning of every journey.

    V – Visual

    O – Oil

    L – Lights

    T – Tyres and brakes

    S – Steering and suspension

    There are a number of commonly used mnemonics used to reference daily motorcycle checks, VOLTS being just one of them. 

    You are advised to check with your local training provider, who may have a good alternative that they use and will pass onto you.
