Talking Motorcycles Unlimited Free Basic Maintenance Class, Saturday August 20th!

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 August 20th 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.

I can't believe it is the same day as TWS (Texas World Speedway). I was going to do the parade lap ride. Decisions, decisions. . .

I would go for the parade laps. PM me to tell you what happened and you can always take this class next month. I have been trying to get this for the last couple months but always something would go wrong with the timing...

Strom, you are the man my brother! It's a deal, and I will tell you about TWS (Texas World Speedway) and how ridiculously hot it was.
