Riders visiting this year’s Isle of Man TT races have been reminded to check their bike tyres before heading off to maximise their performance.
The timely advice has been issued by TyreSafe and follows its recent PACT campaign showing bikers that tyre maintenance is essential to get the best out of their machines.
“Whether you’re planning a trip to the TT races on the Isle of Man or just taking a relaxing ride out in your local area, it’s always sensible to look after your tyres for a smoother ride,” said Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe.
“Just a few simple precautions can provide better handling and grip. The added benefit is that properly maintained tyres can actually reduce running costs.”
Riders who check the bike tyres themselves, should pay particular attention to ensuring there are no cuts, cracks or bulges in the tyres and that the tyre is correctly inflated.
Adequate tread depth is also vitally important — especially given the risk of a sudden downpour — to ensure the bike is able to handle any wet weather conditions.
“There’s no doubt the TT races are a highlight of the year for many bikers and for some it’s become an annual pilgrimage,” Jackson continued.
“It’s therefore essential that they check their tyres to get the maximum performance from their bike, as well as staying as safe as possible when making the trip,” added Jackson.
