Re: How to use this board- Please read

Thanks! I think............. This is a good way to be able to tell how much money I've sunk into my ride!
But that a good thing so I can make sure that I have the proper amount of insurance on my baby!

I tried a separate post on this, no response, so I thought I would try my question here.

I went to edit my maintenance log (Will's 2002 GL1800 Maintenance Log ) and with the new board was unable to. A warning appeared telling me the post I wanted to edit was too long, to reduce the size. Also another box appeared asking the reason for the edit. What I have been doing is keeping the actual maintenance log in the first post, rather than having a separate post for each addition to the log. This particular edit was to reduce the size of two of the photos in the log, but I was not able to perform this change.
Will we be able to edit our post, and is there a limit to how many words or characters in a post.

This has been a great idea, Lamont! I have used this more than the back of my owner's manual. And, I can refer to it from most anywhere!

Are we talking Tim Vipond? Go to messages and type his name in. At least his name came up when I typed in Tim V!

Not being the cleverest computer user, I tried to post there and got an error message. So, I just made up my own with Microsoft Word.

Its available with one or two clicks and editing it is a cinch.

That's when I decided that it might be a good idea to create a board where I could search this board for my maintenance records that might help me look up when I did something to my bike.

The other cool thing about this is you will be able to see what others are doing as far as oil changes, life of a certain brand of tire or anything related to service on your bike.

It's up to you as to how much information you want to place here but I would put the Make, Model and Year of your bike and Mileage to start with, and a easy title to your message so you can find it later, something like LaMosters 99 Boss Hoss is what would work for me.

You can use this board to know just when you added an accessory to help keep track how well it is holding up. Remember you can go back in and edit any of your post at any time.

Hope you like the idea, I know I do. Have fun.
