sailing safely in the rain

Rain not only transforms the road, but also the experience of traveling by motorcycle, especially when you have a riding companion on the back. In this scenario, the art of adjusting tire pressures becomes a finely tuned dance between performance, safety and ride enjoyment.

Recommended pressures with passenger: A necessary commitment especially in the rain

Manufacturers' manuals are like detailed maps for bikers, and when it comes to carrying a passenger, it's crucial to follow their directions. The extra load can drastically change how your bike handles, affecting traction or handling. This is where the right pressures come into play to balance performance and ensure a safe experience.

On rainy days, where the risk of aquaplaning increases, maintaining the recommended pressures for duo travel becomes a necessary commitment. Asphalt ruts close at low pressures, but adequate pressure allows you and your bike to float over the worries, instead of sliding.

The formula for winter: warmth and safety to go together

When winter appears, not only you feel the cold; your tires too. Adjusting pressures this season is like giving your bike and your passenger an extra blanket. It's a small gesture with a significant impact, ensuring you're both comfortable and safe.

Raising the pressures by a tenth in winter not only maintains optimal performance in cold conditions, but also helps meet the challenges of winter rain. After all, nothing diminishes the enjoyment of a duo ride like the feeling of control and security around every turn.

Conclusion: trust in tandem
