A word on todays motorcycles, technology, and service!

Consumers are forced to make decisions based on numbers and results, ultimately through some sort of racing.  Whether its tarmac, dirt, sand, even ice, manufactures battle to sell their products so the company name sells.  2015 has these manufacturers showing strengths in engineering and technology like we've never seen before.  This technology shows up right out of a box in your local dealers finding the streets in your hands and mine.  Its truly incredible.  A blog needed only about those details...

Motorcycles of today, in fact for years now, have not been like the once "bicycle with engine" days were and any handyman can fix them.  Those were somewhat acceptable in the 70's and 80's.  Heck, even auto mechanics were certifiying them.  The good old simple engines and carbs with a 5 wire harness are long gone and those primitive hydraulics for suspensions have me looking back and wondering how the heck they rode those.

Well, your motorcycle was and now more then ever needs to be maintained - and better then your cars.  See cars are more expendable and most people lease not worrying too much about them.  - Cant lease a motorcycle.!  Point being we have to take care of our motorcycles.  Not to mention the safety aspect. 

**What we need to note is Preventitive Maintenace.  Scheduled maintenance intervals will ensure youre touring or racing will last a long time with no break downs. 

The cost in the long term is priceless as is insurance on your house or life for that matter.  That being said, it leads me to the moral of this blog.  "You must maintain or enhance or service your motorcycle by qualified and proven technicians or establishments."
