M7, to many, maintenance is a 4-letter word. They ride it til it quits or lose forward motion.
Ive taken spark plugs out of motorcycles that had no center electrodes, air filters where you couldnt see the pleats in the element through the dirt, molasses-like brake fluid, tires with cord showing, and yet they would point, smile and say.."Hey!-look at the new slip-on I just put on!". Or..."My bike wont start. It ran yesterday--what could be wrong?"
Me: "Does it crank and not run, or does it not crank?" Them: "It cranks slow then quits cranking." Me: "How old is the battery?" Them: "It's 8 years old, but I charge it the night before I ride it. It should be OK, I charged it all night long."
I get cramps in my eyelids from rolling my eyes.
