Talking Motorcycles Unlimited Free Basic Maintenance Class, Saturday March 28th!

Motorcycles Unlimited Free Basic Maintenance Class, Saturday March 28th!

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 every couple of months 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 14-15 attendees each time.

The next one will be Saturday March 28th! 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!

I have to cancel my spot in this class because I have a famiky engagement that's been dropped in my lap like a.sack of bricks. I guess it's open to whoever unless Patrick says otherwise.

Since this is your first post on this thread I'm assuming you mean your spot from the postponed class?
I pm'd everyone from that class offering them first shot at this class.
Everyone who responded to that pm got put on the list.
I just double checked my pm's and did not receive a reply from you.
14 is the upper limit of people we can have since the class is held in an active shop environment.
However, if you'd like to come down and see if someone doesn't show it's o.k. with me.
