BMW issued a recall for a number of its 2019 and 2020 motorcycles because of faulty front brake calipers because these critical components can leak when parked, which can lead to a dangerous loss in stopping power if the fluid reservoir gets depleted. In addition to the recall, a stop-sale has been issued on new models as well.

Anyone who has driven or ridden a motorcycle knows just how exhilarating it is, especially in Texas, where we are free to ride without a helmet. Unfortunately with the great freedom that operating a motorcycle gives its riders comes the very real danger of an accident. Many times this danger presents itself by way of other carless drivers failing to see motorcyclists. Still other times accidents occur due to uncontrollable elements such as slick or wet roads or loose gravel. While these dangers are not in the control of the rider, some accidents occur simply because the rider's bike or equipment was not properly inspected before riding. These types of accidents can be greatly reduced by performing a pre-ride inspection of your bike and gear. Per-ride inspections should include inspecting the following: tiers, engine oil, fuel, turn signals, belts, sprockets, and personal protective equipment (PPE) to name a few areas to check.
