Below is the Online Motorcycle Repair Course. I will try to take you from knowing nothing about Motorcycle Repair to being able repair your own and others Motorcycles. How much you learn and how well you repair your motorcycle will depend on you. Remember what the Bible tells us... " And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;" (Colossians 3:23) In other words always do your very best. In reality, you are really working for God, and not man.

If you are just looking for general Motorcycle stuff go back to index and pick from there.

  • I have noticed, in my many years on the Web, that technical errors made by the Web Hosting Company I use can sometimes cause my Web Site to be off line for periods of time ranging from a few seconds to days. I guess I should not be surprised. They all claim a 97% or better up time. That means in a 365 day year the site could be down over three days.

    Well, that sucks if you need some of the Motorcycle Course's information TODAY and not tomorrow. To, hopefully, cure this problem I've put the entire site in the WayBack Machine which you can access Here. Put that link in your favorites and you will be able to access it forever or at least until Jesus returns, and the way things are going in the world that might be soon.
