Chapter 3  Introduction

3.1  My Boss Hoss motorcycle

I have been riding motorcycles since I was sixteen, and that was lots of years ago. Since 2013-May-16, I own a Boss Hoss BHC3-ZZ4, built 2005. I named her Wendy, which was inspired by a certain song by Bruce Springsteen.

As far as possible, I am doing all maintenance and repair of my family’s four vehicles myself. To keep track of that, I started to maintain this document, at first just to remind myself about the maintenance done and upcoming required services.

Unfortunately, the motorcycle was with a dealer for almost one and a half years, see 6.4 for some details. While I could not ride the motorcycle for such a long time, I felt like at least writing about it. So I decided to make my personal maintenance log public, in the hope that it may be of some use for the motorcycling community and help establishing some contacts (see how to contribute).
