Hours of Training
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.
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.
Motorcycle Riders Hub is an online eLearning training and guidance platform for all riders. It helps riders at different stages in their training to understand how to improve, operate and control their motorcycle.
