It’s that time of the year again, BON family! Can you believe 2016 has passed so quickly? How did you do on keeping up with your New Years Resolutions from the beginning of the year? Well, if you didn’t do so well, don’t fret, because we have a brand new list of New Years Resolutions coming at you today, so you can go into 2017 with your bike at your side, fresh and renewed!
#1: Ride Every Day
We know, it sounds more like a dream than a resolution, but you can make it happen! Even if it’s just for 10-15 minutes a day – make the time to take your bike out on the road every day of the year. Your bike needs you just as much as you need it!
#2: Buy More Gifts For Your Bike
We know there are so many of you who want a bangin’ new paint job for your bike, or even that sexy new leather seat. So why not? Splurging on your bike means you’re also splurging on yourself, and getting your bike the upgrades and bling it needs will make you a more confident, happier rider throughout the new year.
#3: Perform More Maintenance On Your Bike
Not only is proper and standard maintenance a must have for safety reasons, but keeping up on your maintenance routine will save you in the long run from costly repairs, and lengthen the lifespan of your bike. You want to keep your bike for as long as you can, and giving it regular check-ups will keep you and your bike together for much longer.
#4: Plan A Motorcycle Road Trip
Reference back to our comprehensive guide to taking the Ultimate Motorcycle Road Trip, and get planning that cross-country trip you’ve always wanted to take the Harley on. 2017 is your year!
#5: Buy Yourself A New Bike (Or A Second Bike!)
It’s not that you don’t love your current bike. Really it isn’t. What it is about is that more is always better. Stop looking at the empty spot in your garage and get your current bike a new friend. Stop sighing at the repairs your current bike needs and just trade it in already, like you’ve thought about doing for months now. You know you’ve been eyeing that shiny new toy at the Harley shop. So give in at some point this year. That new bike needs your love too.
Tell us in the comments if you have any additional New Years Resolutions to add to this list! Do you have any already made resolutions that you plan on sticking to no matter what? Have a safe and happy New Year 2017, BON Brothers and Sisters!
