Actually I do 100% of the wrenching on my own GL, and am usually directly responsible in some degree with wrenching on many others. Plus being directly involved in 29 (to date) Traxxion Suspension upgrades.Pearlblue,
If I'm on my Wing, I agree.. On the KLR or the BMW, a good tool kit will get you out of trouble faster than you can call for help..
Both are simple bikes, and a good set of tools and common sense will fix almost all issues in less than an hour, if you actually do have an issue.
I assisted changing tires (with a machine) on my Wing and I'd NEVER consider doing a tire related item on the road with it.. The Elite III's were stiffer than my car tires with air in them.
But, working on my KRL or BMW is a snap, and the more you work on it, the more you'll know your bike.
