For those of you who don't know, I am pretty new to the motorcycle communtiy. I still haven't decided which Monster to buy yet. But, one thing is for sure, I am mechanically impotent. I've lived with my mom for the past ten years after my parents split up, and my dad can't even do an oil change. I hear how expensive the matinence on a Duc is and how all of you are constantly modifying your bikes, and I'm left with one question...How can I learn? I'm asking because if I don't learn mechanics, my bike will never change. Also, when you all make modifications to your bikes, how much better do they actually get? Speed wise, handiling, torque, style, etc... This would provide a motivation to learn. Should I take a class? What?
