Talking Motorcycles Unlimited Free Basic Maintenance Class, Saturday February 26th.

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 February 26th 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.

Patrick,
I'm trying to talk the wife into doing this as she just got her own bike and needs to learn these kind of basic things.

It's on her birthday DAY though so she's being difficult. Please pencil us both in.

Is this going to be over a specific topic, or will it touch base on several basic points?

Because it defeats the purpose of connecting you to the community and seeing how a proper shop operates among many other things. If you want to learn from youtube then by all means go for it, but Patrick personally teaches this class and then man has been doing this for a long time and knows what the he's talking about.

Can't ask a DVD player questions. Hands-on dialogue is what classes are all about.
