What type of coverage do you need?

Spring is in the air, even though we are still getting little weather reports that some of winter want to stay in the area.  But, as temps start to rise, the air feels crisp, a nice spring sunshine day, and “WA LA!” you are ready to get onto your bike for that ride.

The Weimer Group likes you to be prepared, not only in your insurance coverages but the health and safety of motorcycle riding.  Here’s a very simple checklist to follow before you get on your bike for that ride:

  1. Check all head lights, tail lights, and turn signals to be sure they are working properly
  2. Test kill button/switch
  3. Check battery levels and clean the terminals
  4. Check all engine transmission fluids and oil levels
  5. Check coolant/anti-freeze levels and hoses for any cracks or leaks
  6. Check brake and brake fluid levels
  7. Inspect brake pads and replace them if they are worn
  8. Inspect tires for obvious wear and dry rot
  9. Check air pressure and fill to the appropriate amounts, Never over-inflate – especially in HOT weather
  10. Inspect the drive chain and belt for wear and tears
  11. Inspect air filter and change oil if necessary
  12. Check all nuts, bolts, and screws for tightness and continue to do this regularly through the riding season
  13. Inspect rear shocks and replace if worn
  14. Look for damaging cracks on handle bars, engine components, or transmission mounting brackets

 Once you have gone through and thoroughly inspected your bike or taken it to a bike repair shop for a spring tune-up, it is important to ride cautiously and slowly at first.  Consider taking your bike out for short rides at first, to be sure your bike is ready for more aggressive of long-distance riding.  If your bike doesn’t feel right, or if something feels loose, do not ride it!!! It’s better to be safe than sorry!

Also, if you don’t have a shop to take your bike to, take a visit to our Featured Partners page.  You will find a great and reputable shop there and let them know you found them on The Weimer Group’s Featured Partner page: http://weimer.astonishsites.com/service-center/partners-page.  Make sure you call The Weimer group to discuss your coverage for you motorcycle is the right one for you!  Harelysville: 215-723-6805 & Perkasie: 215-257-9171
