Default Ladies of the forum...

I am just curious to know of all the ladies on the forum, who all does their own work on the bike? I do everything on my bike and actually quite enjoy it but most of my friends and acquaintances think I am somewhat of an anomaly. Am I just weird or are there other likeminded ladies out there?

I think everyone, man or women should know a little about what makes their bike run, you never know when something is going to happen, some knowledge is better than none.

I will speak for my wife here... She does all of the cleaning and polishing. She helps with everything else that is done UNLESS I do it for a surprise! She has the knowledge and talent to do most of the work, but I just do it for her.

I have done things on my car. But, not so far on my bike. I don't have anyone locally to show me so I haven't delved in yet. Once I'm done with school next month, I'll have more time to read up and dive in.

I do some things and am capable of doing it all, question is... is it an efficient use of my time? Between work and free time, I'd rather be riding when not at work!

This is my first bike, so other than washing and waxing it I have no idea what to do with it. I will watch and learn when it is time for maintenance.

Well speaking of knowing a bit about the bike you ride, I had an interesting occurrence happen on the way to work the other morning. I pulled away from a stop light and when I went to shift into second the shifter lifted up with no resistance whatsoever. After pulling over into a side street, I ascertained what had happened. Apparently a bolt had worked its way loose that held my shifter to the connecting rod. After a little brainstorming, I found some wire on the side of the road which I used to hold everything together enough to make it a little ways down the road to the nearest gas station. Once there, I was able to fashion a better temporary fix that would get to work and back home out of a car battery terminal. (gas stations are somewhat limited on their selection of possible fixing agents) all of this and I STILL made it to work on time

Excuse the ratty nature of my bike ... It is not a beauty queen by any means.
