Honda motorcycles provide a safe mode of mobility to promote safety protocols during the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic such as physical distancing. Before going out to ride, remember the acronym G.O.T. T.O. B.E. S.A.F.E. 

  • General Appearance: Make sure your bike looks good and is in a rideable condition.
  • Oil: Ensure that the engine oil is between the maximum and minimum levels using the engine dipstick.
  • Tires: Check for any cracks, bulges, or signs of wear in the treads. Low tire pressure or any defects could cause a blowout.
  • Tension of chain: Check the chain if it is well lubricated. Chain tension must be following your motorcycle model.
  • Operation of Controls: Check throttle play, which must maintain snapback operations. Check clutch lever for free play.
  • Brakes: Check operation and cable conditions. Test both front and rear brakes to ensure these are working properly.
  • Engine: Make a visual check on your engine to see any leakages or loose fittings.
  • Side Mirror: Make sure that the side mirror is free from scratches and must be clean and clear.
  • Alignment of steering: Check smoothness of play and make sure the handlebar is securely bolted.
  • Fuel: Make sure the gasoline cap is securely closed and not leaking.
  • Electrical / Lights: Ensure all electrical-based switches and devices, like the horn and lights, are properly functioning.
