I ride a shit load but have always been luck enough to ride with mechanics Smile

Lesson 1 ; I would want to know how to perform a basic all over check. Oil,brakes, blah blah
Lesson 2 ; Check and drain / change oil. Changing a brake or throttle cable.Changing a spare tyre
Lesson 3; How to blow out a carbie.
Lesson 4; How to to a ridiculously cool wheelie down the street.

Ha Ha, thats the stuff hardhitter.
Lessons 1+2 can do, this is the knid of stuff people want to know, more of the same peeps.
3 could be tricky for a beginner, but can work up to that. could teach how to fit a fuel filter instead so you don't have that problem.
4 requires, no fear, no brains, the thrill of speed exceeds the fear of death, eventually!, good clutch, body protection and good insurance policies, (+ lots of friends to laugh at you when you plough into the nearest landcruiser!)
Could do a beach wheelie class weekend!

I've only just seen these postings and know it was a whie ago but I'd be really really interested! I'm a girl who rides a little Honda cub round the city but have been on a few dirtbike tours in the countryside. Opting for cost over quality ensures there's always a stop to be made and something to fix.

All the above sound great, plus how to put a new brake/clutch handle on when I fall off and break mine Smile

Have the classes gone ahead and started? Can I join in?

guess that depends on how soon you're aiming to do this. I'm not available day or night for another few weeks...maybe the last week of August or the second week of Sept I'm free whenever in the eve after 4 or weekend.

I currently run the bar and shuffle board lounge at the scan hotel in the evenings from 6pm to midnight 7 nights a week, but this ends at the end of this month so the classes will start early next month.
I will post day and time as early as possible.

what about chain maintenance - adjusting oiling and knowing when it's done?
