1) CHECK PRESSURE FREQUENTLY both front and rear. That'll be an obsessive habit now.
That's certainly good advice, but still not good enough, IMO. Checking tire pressure, while not a huge job, is tedious enough that it really becomes a chore over time. And even worse, it only ensures that your pressure is good at the start of the ride-- get a puncture while you are riding and you'll never know until the ride degrades enough to feel it (and, at that point, it's probably dangerous).
Having a TPMS is, IMO, the only way to go. No need to check your pressures manually and you'll know if you're losing pressure during a ride. Thus, I installed a "FULLELE Wireless Waterproof Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) for Motorcycle, 2 External Sensors" (search that on Amazon-- I can't post links) last spring and have been using it all season. It works fantastically.
I charged it fully when I first got it, and it went four months
before it needed a charge! And after all that time it still wasn't even fully discharged-- it took that long for the gauge to come off the "fully charged" position. I now give it a charge every weekend when I lube the chain, but it always indicates that it's fully charged and only charges for 3-4 minutes before it stops accepting a charge. So, I think it would go more than a month without a charge, and the battery is so small it could be easily recharged with a tiny rechargeable power supply.
It's not particularly secure on the bike and it wouldn't be too difficult to steal if someone was intent on getting it, but at $50 I consider it almost disposable. For the safety I feel it provides me, I'll just replace it if it breaks or is stolen and consider it a cost of riding. In fact, I already purchased a backup and have it at the ready in the event that something happens to the one I have mounted.
I won't ride a MC without a TPMS, and I find this aftermarket version to be an excellent way to have a TPMS on any bike I ride.
