I would definitely get one IF...

Make it viewable on a MAC. I got the BMW repair manual for my 2011 F650GS twin and have to borrow a computer that has windows to use the DVD. What a pain! I love working on my own bike, but must admit I need some tutoring.

What not buy a cheap copy of a windows OS and use Bootcamp and or one of the other programs like Parallels - virtual box etc.

Great input folks....I appreciate the feedback. We've not finalized anything regarding specific topics and mode of delivery. So, its very helpful to hear your thoughts on this idea. I like the concept of a deployable product via the internet, of course. But a hardcopy also has merit, as pointed out.

Someone mentioned diagrams, and I agree. Joel has already voiced a need for some concepts to be drawn out. So, we would probably have a few pdf files to include with such a production.

I had not considered covering basic maintenance, as that seemed obvious to me. But apparently, its not to all, or maybe it could just be enhanced thru proper technique. I'll have to incubate some more on this angle. Maybe break routine maintenance procedures into a separate module.

Keep it coming.....all serious suggestions are welcome.

p.s. If I ponder it much, I cringe at the amount of work this project will require. I just wanna ride my motorsickle!

any possibility we can submit topics of interest and have the group vote on what is of interest? and definitely include some of the mroe basic maintenance stuff. joel has seen a gaggle of low level issues come thru his shop. from changing rad fluid to bleeding brakes, etc. stuff would definitely be of interest, but could make the amount of content too big....

As someone else mentioned, the Chain Gang put out a couple of CDs with the first consisting of basic maintenance and the second was more advanced. Why not do that? That way you can address any bugs of the process in a more basic format before addressing the more complex issues.

I'd recommend making the videos accessible via DVD that peoplepay you for but keep the cost down. If you are doing this to make money you will end up being disappointed when it all ends up on YouTube. I will gladly contribute to it but the fact is, the more accessible it is the more successful it is.

Finally, and I mean this in the most admirable way possible, I think it will be helpful if you reign Joel in a bit on the techno speak. I don't mean this in any way to be disrespectful and I have nothing but huge props to the guy for his contributions to the community. I just can't imagine watching a video of how to change out my battery and holding a torqu wrench for 20 minutes as he gives a presentation on lithium vs AGM batteries. I'm being facetious here but you get my drift. I'm not a wrench and my eyes glaze over every time I read one of his posts but thats my own limitations and not any reflection on Joel.

That's my input. Take it as you will but sign me up for a copy. I thinks it's a great idea and one I will definitely support.

I will buy one if it has Mac support and/or Youtube subscription + Basic Maintenance included.

Though I am really curious on how you will price it.

I would purchase this. With all the F8GS's out there there should be a market.
Something like this was done a few years ago for the R1200GS (I bought a copy) and I found it very helpful.
