+1 for a service manual.

As a hands on learner myself I say spend an afternoon or what not out in the garage just familiarizing your self with parts on the bike. look it over, check nuts and bolts for proper torque, check the oil, tires over and the pressure, maybe pop the air filter off and see what it looks like, check your spark plugs and gap them just because you have them out. check your chain for proper tension or oil if a shaft driven bike. Check brake fluid and pads, coolant, lights, and just make sure everything is in working order and properly adjusted. You'd be surprised how easy it is, and how quick you get to know your bike.

The owners manual will be able to tell you proper adjustments and how- to on most maintenance items.
