How Best Protect/Maintain Bike?
What should I do first to new bike once picked up?
Not asking about mods, but protection/maintenance etc. Ethariel (apologies if I spelt wrong) raised a good post about protecting aluminium engine cases. What tips/products can you all recommend to try best protect and maintain bike? What tips do you have to check, tinker with? What should I be looking out for once I have put a few miles on the bike?
Thereafter, what do I need to be looking out for? I am going to purchase the Haynes Manual (reminds of being a kid in the 70's my dad and all other dads would be using to do a bit of maintenance on the car at the weekend) to read through and service and maintain myself after Triumph complete first service (want them to look at initially, then I will get my hands dirty) I am a firm believer in no mechanic will have as much pride in working on my machine than I will have (apologies if we have any mechanics here, no offence meant). Any advice offered will be gratefully received. Thanks.
