Probably none. Its always better to be there and it is like and hour drive for me but I would still drive out there to actually be there even if they were posted. Plus can't realy get the same in depth answer with visual for any questions if you don't attend. Just an idea though.

It's a great idea but I wonder if it will pull from the people who would be willing to go?

I have about an hour drive to Motorcycles Unlimited but it seems that this a trip that I've been taking quite a bit this year.
I don't see it slowing for me regardless if these were hosted as videos or not.

Thats the way I feel. It wouldnt stop me from still wanting to drive out to actually be there. Its just that there is a lot more than 10-15 members on here so it would be forever and a day before everyone was able to actually make it out to one ( assuming everyone would like to attend) And im not 100% sure on this but I am guessing each one will be about something different. Pat correct me if im wrong. If it is just the same general maintnance class then it can be posted and if you have any queastions you can still make a class and be able to ask and get an informative answer and still have the vid to help when you get home.

Ok, don't y'all go running to Patrick at once, but I have to drop out of the one on the 16th.

Weather looks good, so I'll be out riding all day, then worry about the maintenance later. After all, if ya'int gonna ride it, there's nothing to maintain!

Three weeks after I bought my first bike, I took it apart all the way to the carbs- wheels off, brakes, airbox, plastics, lights etc. and put it back together.


Like three weeks later.


With about 67 leftover parts.



I still have a box full of extras.

Great idea Pat, put me down for a fill in for this Sat in case someone bails. I'm only a block away from the shop so it's nothing for me to get there even last minute.
