When clearing a paper jam in your laser printer, do not pull out the toner cartridge and touch whatever that hot thingy is with the tip of one of your fingers. It's fuggin' hot. (338F - I looked it up.)

Center Stand

Do NOT assume that you can rock your new (used) 1150GS on to the center stand while seated like you could with your Royal Enfield Bullet 500.

Never assume you've dropped your keys inside the fuel tank (cause you heard them fall somewhere and they're not on the ground) before making sure they aren't simply stuck between the bash-plate and the engine.

Boy that was frustrating...

Doh!!

Do not lay your textile jacket over the gas tank during a stop and allow the plastic zipper to contact the hot head pipe.

Be very careful...

...not to knock the box containing your indexed numbered drill bits on the floor.

The little tiny ones aren't marked and it'll take you an hour with a dial caliper to get them all sorted out again.

Never mind how I know this...

Make sure when you run the clutch cable adjuster all the way in BEFORE you adjust the clutch on a Harley.

Only took me 15 seconds to realize my mistake.

When you buy a new front hub for your FWD vehicle (to replace one burned blue by a bad bearing), make sure the new one fits on the splines of the halfshaft before having it pressed into the steering knuckle assembly.
