Heavens yes! Just born with the genes and whatever else it is that led me to be an engineer. LT stuff I started learning here 5 years ago, and since I did ride in the upper percentage of mile eaters, experienced some of the major issues with my LT, and one that no one else has had (broken piston ring lands) I have had the experiences of tearing really deep into the bike. I do all my automotive, electrical, and just about any other work, so have gained a lot of actual experience in several areas. I am also an Instrument rated Private Pilot, was once thinking heavily about buying my own plane, so read heavily for a few years in that area too.
I am the type of person who not only READS the owner's manuals on anything I buy, I also purchase the service manuals on any vehicle and actually speed read through them so I understand what is going on, and so that there will be few surprises if I have to do anything. I like driving, riding, flying, etc. and being able to visualize what is happening all over the vehicle in some detail. If something seems amiss, I can usually break it down in my head quickly and determine what may be the most likely suspect.
So in short, when something comes up in a subject with which I am familiar, I post about it.
BUT, there are PLENTY of areas I am not experienced or knowledgeable. So when those come up, I sit back quietly and learn from others. That is one thing I love about this group, plenty of sharp people in many areas where I know nothing, then when they get through I at least know something.
Man, you impress me everytime you post..
Gee, thanks! Glad I am not riding right now, would not be able to get my helmet on for the next day or so. D:
I want to be like you when I grow up.
Or not, maybe you should meet me first.
Then I would know what I can learn from you!
