For those relatively new members, I as well say Welcome.
Please don't get yourself locked into thinking you are limited as to what you can contribute.. We have lots of great mechanics and 'engineers'. There are more than a few adventure riders and many of them have video cameras and have become very adept at putting together really neat ride reports. I'm not particularly mechanical when it comes to major stuff, but have created a unique niche for myself by finding 'backyard' solutions and presenting 'off-the-wall' ideas. Seems I have become a pretty good 'cheerleader' with my "Missing Link Award".
There are so many ways to get involved. Found a real good way or product to get your bike clean after a day in the mud? Proud of how well organized your Photobucket account is, share your methodology. Mine is a real mess as a few members have found out. There still is a lot of room to fit-in with out picking up a wrench or knowing what color your spark plug should be. I just recently read a post on the ADV riders forum. Some fellow showed us how he turned a pair of coveralls into touring bags. The idea was clever and functional.. Good Luck. Gerry
Likely this is the last thing you have any interest in doing. However your 'crazy' idea may get someone else moving on a more worthwhile project.
