Smile Motorcycles Unlimited Basic Maintenance Class 5/1

As promised! It's that time again!


I've been involved with MH ever since it's inception, when Chris invited me over to post and help with tech questions etc.

I would like to take it a step further.

We see bikes daily at the shop that are in desperate need of basic maintenance.
Minor things that can easily be done by their owners but aren't, and then do turn into something major.

Most of the time it's because the owner isn't aware of what it is or how to do it.

So here's what I'm going to do;

Once a month at 9:30 a.m., we will be having a free Basic Bike Maintenance Workshop.

I will choose one participants bike, we will put it on a lift and go over all of the basic maintenance items that need to be done, and how to do them.

At the same time we will answer any basic maintenance questions you may have.

Because I would like everyone attending to be able to see everything, I'm limiting the workshop to 10-14 attendees each time.

The next one will be Saturday May 1st, at 9:30 a.m..

If the weather is too bad to ride, no worries, I'll put one of my bikes up.

Hope to see you all there!


Please post up on this thread if you're planning to attending.

this is a great oppurtunity to learn basics and better get to know (in a non sexual way) your bike by a grand poo-bah!

Agreed. Attend this if you haven't. I will attend another of these but will be out of town this weekend. It's a great workshop.

It's on Saturday 5/1.

And to all, please don't sign up unless you will for sure show up. The class is limited to a small number of people, so everyone can enjoy. Even after all the spots are filled, please continue with a few names, in case someone finds out that they are not able to make it.
