Mrs 2wheels here - just got my L's and first bike a couple of weeks ago, and I really want to learn how to take care of the basics on this beast myself. I think if I am riding it I should know how it works!! Does anyone know of a basic motorcycle mechanics course? All I want is a basic overview of how the engine works and basic maintenance. It seems if you are born with testicles you seem to know all these things automatically But for those of us with bumps in different places, we need to find out! I suppose a book would help, but its not the same as 'hands on' and getting down and dirty with the real thing. (that almost sounds rood!) I've tried the local Adult education place and they laughed at me, and the local TAFE doesn't seem to offer anything. Surely I'm not asking that much??!
