BMW Recalls Motorcycles Over Leaky Front Brake Calipers

Harley Davidson Recall

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.

Still recuperating from controversy involving a faulty ignition switch, General Motors announced three new recalls recently involving another 1.8 million vehicles.

General Motors Recalling Another 1.5 Million Vehicles

According to a recent article in USA Today, General Motors announced three new recalls involving nearly 1.5 million vehicles.
