Just enrolled to the Motorbike Maintenance course run by the Hammersmith And Fulham Adult Education Service
No other reason than it looks fun and love to now a bit more about bikes in general.
anyone on here going? (there are 2 places left if anyone is interested)
Oooo, I didn’t know they did one. I might be up for this, I’ll just have a look at the website and see when, where and how much
Where: The Macbeth Centre,W6 9JJ
When: 10wks - Wends 18:30 - 21:00
Cost: £132 - a lot less than a service
hmmm, sounds interesting, ill probably be up for this, although i think its a very basic course so i will probably already know most of the stuff they cover… but will be fun to get my hands greasy… dont get the chance right now since i live in a flat :crying: ah the london life!
What date does it start?
Im 17 and iv spend pritty much all my life learning about motorbike Maintenance, I took my first engine apart and put it back together at the age of 3 (it was a strimmer engine lol) and i learnt it all from my father who`s been in the buisness for 30 years, Now im just learning the basics of tuning.
I wanted to do one of these courses as I know next to nothing about the bike and all.
Going to enroll on the one at Merton College as it is nearer to one of my offices; not so far to get home, and I met the guy who runs the course at GEMS.
They run a Practical Skills course and an Advanced Skills course, both run for 20 weeks and are for two hours on a Wednesday evening.
There are no spaces left at H and F college and the Merton one is too far for me. Has anyone heard of any other courses? I am based in East Finchley so North of the river preferred.
yeah ive not heard of one up here (Herts) although I did look for one a little while ago to try and see what theyd offer.
personally I think you should do one as part of the test learning or at least be pointed in the direction of one that can be done should you wish to.
id go on one for sure - the more you learn, the more you realise you dont know in my opinion there’s always gonna be another way of doing something that might help you out one day when you least expect :w00t:
I signed up for similar years back. Only got to half of the classes due to working overseas.
It was good. I wouldn’t take my own engine apart, but it gives you a better idea of what’s going on. Regular maintainence is a doddle.
I WISH THEY DID THIS DOWM MY WAY MERTTON IS JUST TOO FAR
i was looking into this a while back i’m pretty sure there was a course over in hammersmith also.
still hunting for one nearer to me in Kent…
if you find one let me know:)
I’ve added myself on the waiting list to Hammesmith & Fulham. There are courses starting every other month so add your name and you’ll eventually get on e come up.
H, let me know if you do this and I’ll sign up for it at the same time
