SO YOU OWN A MOTORCYCLE AND YOU RIDE IT, THAT’S ALREADY HALF THE BATTLE. The most important part of that battle, however, is being able to keep it running. Now this only really applies if you have an old bike that requires routine maintenance. If you have a new Dyna or something it’s really not a major concern. Especially if you have a warranty or some shit like that. So for those of us whose warranty expired over 50 years ago we need to be a little more on our toes. I was in another state, on another coast one time and I watched a hip, big name builder kick his bike for about 10 minutes. Now we’ve all been there and we all know it sucks. It actually really sucks, especially when about 50 people are standing there watching you kick.
But you gotta have your bike knowledge on point. If I kick one of my bikes more than a certain amount of times I know somethings wrong and automatically start checking shit. That’s because, even though my bikes look like shit, they typically run great. Why do they run great? Because you have to know your bike like the back of your hand. You know what I’m talking about, the starting procedure and shit like that. You may be able to fabricate a motorcycle out of toothpicks and beer cans but can you keep it running properly? Or diagnose and fix a problem on the side of a highway while semis cruise by at 80mph? If not tighten up your game ‘cause if your bike won’t start in front of the bar, you might not get laid. And that’s really what it all boils down to. Keep your bike running right and know its ins and outs or you could miss out that fine piece of tail.
