Learn about your bike
An idea, which I think has been utilized frequently in the past involved some of the more educated motorcycle enthusiasts holding a get together when the moment hits them to help teach others about bikes. I for one, am interested in learning more, and taking advantage of the skills and resources of the great people on this board. As fall begins to hit and worse weather prevents our riding, I was thinking that this would be a optimum time for people to still get together to have experienced riders teach people how to do work on their own machines. Essentially, whatever your good at...If you have a driveway, garage or spot where people can gather around, it would be a nice way to help eachother maintain our bikes and make sure everyone is doing what they need to PROPERLY to stay safe. Some ideas I had were:
Exhaust install (slip on, full)
Suspension modification (lowering, changing, etc)
LCD signals and aesthetics
Maybe even basic things like oil changes, changing out tires
Prepping for winter storage
an awesome session would be an engine rebuild (of course, not possible in a day), but more of a demo of how each part works together to make your shit go!
If this is something others are interested in, I know I would like to be a part of it... if this already exists, maybe I just missed it. Either way, I invite responses...
