    Hello, my name is Laydon. I'm 53 and have been riding since I was 7. But I'm just getting into doing my own light maintenance on my bike. I used to help my dad change the oil in our cars back in the 70's and that's about the extent of my experience. I'm only going to be doing mainly fluid changes. Getting used to torque pounds and inches and the correct type of fluids for the primary, and transmission are the main things I'm focusing on. And I'm looking forward to any other tips and hints I can learn here.

    Thanks!
