How well do you know your motorcycle?

I'd been with my wheels for more than 2 years now and when I experience certain issues, I'm already aware which part should be fixed. I already know the reasons why it encounters certain malfunction that are are mostly minor. How about yours?

Hi, two things hapen to me:

1. I get used to the bike, loosing some perspective about what makes difficult for me to figure out what is going wrong

2. I can identify certain issues straight away, like tyres getting old, certain wierd vibrations or leaks, not so sure about loosing power

Some folks seek the comfort of the straight and narrow. Me? I prefer the twisted road.
