It takes you that long to walk around your bike?
The thing has 2 wheels, a front and rear brake, also 0 protection to absorb impact. I always check out my bike before i go out on a ride.
Wouldn't want to lose a leg over some mechanical fart that i could have spotted if i only made the effort to do so.
the very least is: lights and indicators, tires, brake/clutch/suspension leaks and water/oil level. That's like 2 minutes out of your free time.
