Talking Motorcycles Unlimited Free Basic Maintenance Class, Saturday May 24th!

Motorcycles Unlimited Free Basic Maintenance Class, Saturday May 24th!

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 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 May 24th 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've already been to one a year ago but I'd love to go again for a refresher. Please add me to the list of back ups if the turn out is not too large. I'll re-request the night before to check and see if there are any drops.

12. Cjstephe812 - Patrick, I'm going to need an oil change, rear tire and perhaps sprockets and chain that day so this is perfect timing for the maintenance class. Thank you!
