Preparation before a ride

While on the highway always make sure that you side safely with some proper gears. Here are the things you need to do

  • Always wear a helmet, make sure it is full face & good quality.
  • If you are carrying pillion then also make sure he/she also wears a helmet.
  • Wear other safety guard like elbow and knee guard.
  • Make sure you have rear view mirror in the bike.
  • Always give signals/indicators while turning or changing lane.
  • If possible try to keep the headlight of the bike ON or if not then at least keep the parking light of the bike ON. 
  • Don't try to be aggressive with the bus drivers, as during Eid time they are out of their mind.
  • Many of you may be fasting during this time if you do then try to keep you mind fresh & if you are not fasting then drink water whenever you take a break. 
  • Take 5-10 minutes break after riding for 40-50 km, try to make sure that you sit and take rest under a trees with shade. 
  • If you are feeling sleepy then wait somewhere and give splashes of water to your eyes & have a walk for 5-10 min.

Additional Gear & Support

Sometimes we often have some unfortunate situation where there could be nothing to be done, so to minimize those things I request the riders that if possible then carry the following things.

  • Carry extra clutch cable and accelerator cable with you.
  • Carry an extra spark plug.
  • Carrying an extra engine oil won't be a bad option.
  • If you are not fasting then carry drinking water.
  • Don't EAT or DRINK anything from any other person you don't know personally.
