It’s here – that time of year again, time to rev the engine of your Hog and head for the open road. But before you take any longer trips, you’ll want to check your bike over and make sure it’s ready for the season. Routine maintenance is important, to keep your bike operating properly. Changing the oil and fluids and doing proper lubrication will help you avoid future repairs. Be aware of everything that needs to be done to prepare your Hog for the riding season. Check your battery and hook it up to a trickle charger, if it needs it. Unless you changed your oil before you put up your bike for the winter, you’ll want to change it before you do a lot of spring and summer riding. Drain the gas and put in fresh gas. You can check your tank for any rust and check the filters, Auto Insurance Deals, as well. If your Hog has been sitting idle, you may want to remove your spark plugs and give your engine a few drops of oil. Taking the time to check your Hog over now will give you better rides with fewer issues, now that the warmer seasons are here.
