The next thing we're going to talk about is checking the vehicle before we take it on the road. The first thing, before we start it up we want to make a few checks like for gasoline. Make sure we have enough fuel to get to the destination we're going to. We may want to check the oil. Different bikes have different oil tanks and different places that can be checked. This one happens to be underneath the seat. Some of them have a oil tester, here on the side. And sometimes you want to check the tire pressure. Make sure that you have a proper tire pressure in your tires. That will always help for handling and acceleration, braking. You may want to check your mirrors, make sure your mirrors are adjusted properly. And possibly your lights. Make sure your blinkers, your headlights, your tail lights, everything is working well. So, those are a few things you may want to go over before we do get on the road.
