Fall reminder - check shifter

Check your shift lever.

I just about left mine on the road.

I thought I just checked it not long ago, but time goes on.

I thought the general rule was parts stay on, accessories fall off.

Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.

I thought the shifter on the Vulcan has a grooved spline, meaning the only way it would fall off is if the bolt completely fell out.



But yeah, you need to check them bolts and nuts every now and then before taking off.

Was out with some other riders once and one guy said his front wheel felt wobbly going through turns. I walked up to his bike and removed his from axle nut....with my fingers.

Check those, and all the other fasteners at least once a month.

Mine is just a pinch fitting.
It wasn't even that loose, but was sure ready to wiggle off.
