What checks do you do after a long trip?
I recently came back from a trip of 500km, not earth shattering I know, but I did push the bike quite hard and I just want to know if there is anything I should check? The obvious I know like oil and tyre pressure, anything you guys look at after a long ride?

Spectacles, testicles, wallet and keys :thumbup1:

Seriously .... what bike are you on - you are in the BMW tech forum but there's lots of different beemers .

Spectacles, testicles, wallet and teeth (false ones that is, or the fillings!).

You could check the final drive chain, both lubrication and adjustment - always good for the soul. Oh, I forgot, it's a shaft or belt drive.

Wash the bike - look for oil weaps. Look for loose nuts and bolts.

Check spokes. Check nuts and bolts - with a spanner.

Bepends ont the ride - air filter if it has been dusty. Look for rust .. paint chips ..

500 km .. hummm can be long .. depends on the conditions..

(should be done before and after every ride according to the theory passed on to me).
