So that is how it is supposed to be done
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
In the past an auto mechanic would fix a car based on experience. Now they won't do anything without following a written procedure. This book is that written procedure for bikes. Since starting to follow procedures in the book, my maintenance is more precise. Also it is nice to have an up-to-date reference guide in hand.
