So if you want your motorcycle ride to Dijon to go well, we advise you to carry out a few checks:


- Check the condition of your tires. Being the only element in contact with the road, it is the most important control point. You must therefore ensure that they are not slick, inflated to the right pressure, and that the wear is even so as not to be surprised when you take a corner on the superb roads of Burgundy.

- Level up your motorbike. Even if you haven't driven for a long time, it's unlikely that these will have changed, but you don't want to break down in the middle of your Côte d'Or road trip because you don't have checked the engine oil level?

- Degrease and re-grease your chain. Your motorcycle will appreciate it and your ride will be even more pleasant. There is no point applying a layer of grease on top of the old one, it is better that your motorcycle's chain is clean, especially if your bike has been wintering for a long time.
