I keep a simple log book on the bikes I own/ride. It starts out withe a photo of the bike, S/N, cost of bike, colour & so much more.
On the regular pages is each time I fill up along with the milage, how much fuel, & what the trip meter read. Also any time I have laid a spanner to a bike, washed it, lubed the chain, adjusted the chain, tyres, chains, sprockets, etc.
So besides how the bike looks to me & whatever the milage tells me so much more along when was the last time I did this or that.
I picked up the above when I was racing comp bikes for factories over in the UK as they demanded the above & so much more monthly to even how I did in races. Even if I just practed a few hrs that had to be recorded.
It sounds more complicted on this post then it really is & I am amazed others do not do a thing for all it requires is a normal three leaf book & empty lines pages with some vertical ones I put in for Date, Milage, Fuel, etc.
Like I am amazed at those that do not check their air pressure till the bike is handeling lousy, or are way past the time to change the oil, or someone else has to point out to them that it looks like their chain is shot & a rusty mess
