There you go guys. Grab up your ladies and treat 'em nice. If they do the mechanical work, you got it made!

I can understand gals working on bikes and cars.
What I can't understand is guys who like to cook!

Well, I don't claim to be an expert but I at least went to school for it and am certified. So, I know how difficult some things on motorcycles can be to repair without proper training.

I think you ladies working on your own rides is awesome! And, any dude acting like that's some kind of stretch is just being a d1ck. My wife wants her own ride and I could see her doing her own maintenance.

I don't claim to be an expert on anything. I am just somewhat mechanically minded. I don't have any formal training but most things I can pretty much figure out (it just may take me little longer than someone who knows what they are looking for from the start). It also doesn't hurt to not be afraid to jump into a project and get it done. I am confident in myself and my abilities to figure it out in the end even if I am not necessarily an expert on what I am doing.

Now that's an honest answer I can accept!

No, I agree. But maintenance is one thing, rebuilding a gearbox is another.

Confidence is a good quality so is common sense.. there will be times when people are simply in over their head and the best course of action is too hand it to someone else and watch and learn if you can. From what I have read thus far you seem like an individual that has both.

Oh I agree. That is one thing about confidence. It goes both ways. I can be confident in what I CAN do, but I can also be confident in what I can NOT do. I can research and get advice as to whether it is something I can tackle myself but sometimes its not. And even then, it doesn't necessarily mean I don't think I can do it, but the circumstances surrounding it may just not be favorable (don't have the right tools, don't have the time, don't have the money, etc) Bottom line is there are multiple aspects that determine whether or not I attempt to work on a project.
