    Use MagicDisc. Copy your DVD to a folder, and mount the folder as a DVD. Faster than a DVD for access.



    I'd be interested no matter what the format.

    I'd be more interested in routine maintenance procedures over debugging issues, something like the jimVb DVDs for the 1200gs

    I would be interested. Have used similar for my old F650 single from the Chain Gang. Invaluable info to have. I would pay a modest price for a good comprehensive DVD.

    So long as the price isn't crazy I'd love to have a DVD. :clap For those who say DVD format is less usable out in their shop, I'd remind them that portable DVD players only cost $50 and they are much more reliable than my internet service.

    Me, too. It's bound to be more useful than that Globeriders DVD.

    Make it viewable on a MAC. I got the BMW repair manual for my 2011 F650GS twin and have to borrow a computer that has windows to use the DVD. What a pain! I love working on my own bike, but must admit I need some tutoring.

    Great input folks....I appreciate the feedback. We've not finalized anything regarding specific topics and mode of delivery. So, its very helpful to hear your thoughts on this idea. I like the concept of a deployable product via the internet, of course. But a hardcopy also has merit, as pointed out.

    Someone mentioned diagrams, and I agree. Joel has already voiced a need for some concepts to be drawn out. So, we would probably have a few pdf files to include with such a production.

    I had not considered covering basic maintenance, as that seemed obvious to me. But apparently, its not to all, or maybe it could just be enhanced thru proper technique. I'll have to incubate some more on this angle. Maybe break routine maintenance procedures into a separate module.

    Keep it coming.....all serious suggestions are welcome. :ear

    HF :lurk

    p.s. If I ponder it much, I cringe at the amount of work this project will require. I just wanna ride my motorsickle!

    any possibility we can submit topics of interest and have the group vote on what is of interest? and definitely include some of the mroe basic maintenance stuff. joel has seen a gaggle of low level issues come thru his shop. from changing rad fluid to bleeding brakes, etc. stuff would definitely be of interest, but could make the amount of content too big....
