Although called a “pre-ride” inspection, the official name of this simple checklist, developed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation , is summarized with the acronym T-CLOCK, for the headings of each section.

  • T- Tires and Wheels
  • C- Control Levers
  • L- Lights & Battery
  • O- Oil Levels
  • C- Chassis
  • K- Kickstand

// Best time to perform? Shortly after your last ride. Do a post-ride cleaning. The perfect time to discover loose pieces, small leaks, and especially more serious trouble.

// It makes sense to pay attention to the mechanics of your motorcycle. Check those things that you can see or that you can get a wrench on. Feel or measure for proper adjustment. Making sure that your last ride didn’t do some damage that will spoil your next one.

// Now you have the time to correct any discrepancies: A nail lodged in a tire, etc.

Big Moose Basecamp – Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Our intent was organizing a transformational, inspirational & educational “Slumber Party in the Smokys” for ALL women who ride motorcycles,

It was Gina Cunningham who went on the virtual scouting expedition. We knew immediately the “BIG MOOSE” was the perfect Base camp for the 2017 Women’s Motorcycle Summit – The Smokies Edition.

The scenic views and relaxing setting creates the perfect place to unwind and reconnect after long days of riding and enjoying the celebrations organized by our sponsors.

THE BIG MOOSE LODGE helps guests feel at home with it’s 16 bedrooms divided into three spacious floors, with the two bubbling hot tubs, a 21 person theater with theater style seating, an electric fireplace, a pool table and a foosball table, and so much more.

Outside you will find beautiful landscaping, access to a Nature Walking Trail that adjoins the cabin, and a spacious covered pavilion with two park grills perfect for our Friday evening Cook Out.

Whatever the weather, Hearthside Cabin Rentals ensures we will be comfortable by providing central heat and air plus a dehumidifier. The cabin has ample parking and provides easy access for John T. to park his mobile Verhulst Motorcycle Service.
