Been riding for a ton of years. Have several bikes. My son decided he wanted to learn and at the same time learn about bikes, mechanically etc. As my older brother used to own a motorcycle shop, I worked there after school and weekends so was taught everything by the mechanics in the workshop. Anyway, we bought an Australian model GSF250V and are now stripping it down to get it all going again and working properly. Found this website with a heap of resources, so paid the premium membership to access the manuals etc. Bit of a father and son project. But he loves it and is learning lots at the same time.
