I replaced the crankbearings myself. Does that qualify?

What are these "Oil", "Tires", and "Brakes" things of which you speak?

Well, helloooooo there, you good-lookin' silver beastie!

What's a nice motorcycle like you doing in a place like this?

Let me take you away from all this!


Ah, memories! That first meeting, the first ride, the first oil change...

I think daily micro-cleaning of your motorcycle is the best preventative medicine. One speck of dust, one blob of grease, one drop of oil...

I know it well enough if I were to get another BMW I'd replace the fuel quick connect male end with the $27 metal version first thing.

"How Well Do You Know Your Motorcycle?"

Do you mean in a Biblical context?

I just turn the knob thingy and push the button and it starts right up, what's to know? I trade them in before they need oil changes or tires.
