I just got my first sportbike (motorcycle) a month ago. I love it. The only concern I have right now is my lack of knowledge of the mechanics of the bike. I know the basic stuff. You know, like tire pressure, fluid levels and what not. But everyone here seems to have a vast knowledge of motorcycle mechanics. Does this come over the years of being a rider, or is there alot of studying for me to do.

Part of the addiction that is sportbike riding is staying in touch with the latest and greatest . Not necessarily buying, just being aware. I read everything I can get my hands on. I am by no means an authority, just passionate about bikes. Subscribe to a good bike rag....and read! Sites like this one are very helpful for specific questions, even if they're dumb. Your chops will probably get busted a bit, but so what.:D :D

very fisrt bike?

I know plenty of good riders that will never change their own oil, all work is done by the shop- its all up to you and how comfortable you feel with tools in your hands, if you messed with somthing and nearly die by your own hands --that would suck:barf: take care ,see ya around

A lot of it does come over time. You will have problems with your bike and you friends will know how to fix it... hence you gain knowledge a little at a time. And your buddys will have problems and you will have to help them fix it to learn.

This is very true you do learn alot over the course of time. There are many resources at your finger tips via the net, this site being one of them. These folks on this site have good ideas that I have been able to learn how to take care of my machine. Learn well and ride safe.:D
