How to use this board- Please read

I got to thinking the other day that I would like to be able to look up "online" when I changed a tire or did some other type of maintenance on my bike. I have been through a few front tires on my Boss Hoss and I couldn't remember the tire I had before this last one or what kind of mileage I got out of it. 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.

Always One

There is always one, so I will be it for this new board. I don't like it. When I come to the board I click View Posts Since Last Visit and do a quick scan through all of the post subjects since I was last here. If folks post a lot of info on their accessories, maintenance, etc, those will come up every time someone posts something new. If not too many, it won't be a problem. But candidly, I could give a hoot about seeing when some else changer their oil or installed extras on their bike. It might be nice for them to keep track, but gees, how hard is it to keep a listing on your computer (too much time for me), shop manual (I jot it down there), or somewhere else.

LaMont, thanks for trying, but I'd just as soon it was not a part of the forum index.

I think it is great.

If my computer crashes and I do not have everythig backed up properly at least I can find it here. I am far from being a guru on this thing...

Thanks...

This is a great idea

After reading the info in your post, I went to my bike and took the note that I had put in the left front pocket. That note had the info for things I wanted to remember about when my last oil change and tires were replaced and brake pads etc. If I lose that slip of paper, I now have those remarks on the computer. Really neat!!!!

I think this is a great idea. I don't think all have caught on yet! I am currently in Iraq until tomorrow prayerfully. But as soon as I get back I am going to add my log to this page as well. Excellent idea for sure. Thanks.

I kind of agree with wingnutzz as i keep info jotted down to go back and look at, but i think what would be really cool is to have a chapter list by state or post listings by state as is on the VTX section on this site. Nice to know who might be close or local stuff going on.
