Pre-Run Bike Checklist

This year's routes are longer and more technical than ever before. And the last thing we want is for you or your bike to be stranded or worse yet, injured. So first things first, let's make sure that your bike is dialed in and ready to put down the miles.

Wheels

We highly recommend having 1500+ miles of good tread left on your tires before starting out - this goes for your brake pads as well.

Electric

Replace any lamps that might be out to avoid small-town tickets and consider your on-the-road charging options as well!

Fueling

If you're having any fueling issues at all, consider cleaning your carb(s) and/or solving the problem before hitting the road.

Oil

If you are even close to due for an oil change, do it now, since you'll be in for hot weather + high altitudes over the weekend.

General Maintenance

Know your bike: address odd noises, check nuts + bolts. And for our Gunrunners who love their sketchy choppers, just remember that the repairs are on you!
