The chance to escape the mundane world of daily life is always appealing to most people because every once in a while we all need a good adventure to shake up our lives and remind us we’re not only here to earn money but also to spend it. When you’re a biker, that kind of chance happens on a daily basis which is why once you become a biker there’s no going back, you’ve got a passion that stays with you for life. Getting to visit new places in an instant and make your way through traffic jams with ease are just part of the motorbike ride pleasures, another essential part is also getting to know oneself better as it’s only you and your bike on the road and that’s the kind of relationship that only gets better in time.
You get to learn you’re much better at map reading than you expected and as you begin to know more of your motorbike, you get surprised by your repairing skills so you could also save on visiting the mechanic’s more often than not. As much as it’s necessary to pay attention to road safety and get all the equipment for full protection, you have to consider investing in protecting your bike as well the way it deserves as there’s always danger lurking around even when you think it’s not. As first, you can be a step ahead of thieves by not tempting them with your bike. How is that possible you ask? Simple, by keeping it covered (especially if you’re not parking it at a garage). There are plenty of choices of motorbike cover products you’d come across, and you can fool thieves by buying a cover of a brand other than your bike.
Needless to say, a motorbike cover that’s both waterproof and heat resistant will protect your prized vehicle from the weather conditions and fire hazards and save you money on frequent cleaning, washing as well as fixes. Once you’ve chosen the proper covering, it’s time to think of the lock. Sure you’re going to buy a lock but what you do once you have it is where the secret to thief deception lies. Though most bikers are usually tempted to use the lock by letting it rest on the ground, this is actually making the lock more vulnerable as anyone can easily break it by getting enough leverage. What you should do instead is attach the lock through the forks, wheel or frame and keep it separate from the ignition. That goes even for bikers who keep their motorbikes in garages.
A little step towards safety goes a long way, and it’s always advisable to make this initial investment than to be sorry later when your bike becomes some other person’s bike.
