Holy Heck, I just committed to my first Airhead purchase, haven't even picked up the bike yet, and began reading through the "Tips and Tricks"'thread and it's all a bit overwhelming and scary. I'm a pretty mechanical inclined guy with a good set of tools, skills, and a nice warm garage. I've owned a ton of bikes over the years and after reading that thread, among many others, I feel like I'm going to need a tech weekend with the experienced gurus to begin to understand the bike and it's delicate intricacies. I sure hope there's a local guru or two that are willing to teach this Airhead noob the basic ins and outs. There's a little sarcasm in this post as I'm actually super excited to get the bike (1993 GS PD with 27,000 miles) but the "fear this" threads are a little intimidating.
