Thumbs up Basic Maintenance Class Sat. May 23rd

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 on a Saturday 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 23rd 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 know how fast this class fills up - I have a friend who just started riding. MSF and M and an 883 in the garage. I'd like to hold a spot for her because I don't get to talk to her until tomorrow night. I'd also like permission to stand at the back of the group if she agrees to attend.

My bro is a new rider looking to get a KLR650 so I hope you don't mind him showing up to at least start getting familiar with some of the maintenance tasks.
