Keys, wallet, etc, go in the pockets of your gear, not the pockets of the clothing under it.

Before kick starting a bike, remember to turn the ignition on.

Turn fuel petcok ON before driving off, or it will die right in the middle of a turn.

Like after installing the polished, finned, deep-sump, 7 quart aluminum one? And keep adding more oil 'cause nothing is showing on the dipstick yet?

That one?

Remove helmet before spitting out the hot water from the first pull from your Camelback.

Reconnect oil pressure sensor line (disconnect was necessary to remove oil filter) before putting fairing lowers back on.

Around 15 years of age, I made this mistake while doing an oil change on a Kenworth cab-over.

Did you know those things take 45 quarts of oil?

Do you have any idea how large a circle 45 quarts of oil can make on a concrete shop floor? (Neither do I, I very fortunately first saw the rapidly expanding circle at a much smaller diameter--probably 10 quarts' worth. )

Man, did I go through a lot of kitty litter that night.

One of those experiences that assures you that you'll never make THAT particular mistake again.

When reinstalling the clean air filter on a dirtbike, remove the rag that you shoved into the air boot to keep dirt out.
