More and more people are turning to riding, which is great. Most are taking the time to learn the skills required to stay alive on the road which is also great. However a good few aren't really sure how to do basic maintenance on thier bikes, nor are they aware of what to check to ensure their bike is in good condition. For your own safety it's important to keep your bike in decent condition. Depending on the outcome of the poll I'm inclined to run a few spanner nights / days for newbies. We could cover topics like tyres (wear and pressure), chains (adjusting and knowing when to replace), brakes (pad and disk wear, hose deterioration, fluid level) and so on. We might even cover some roadcraft basics over tea. I'm interested in al feedback on the topic.
