So, you bought a motorcycle. Do you know how to maintain it? Take this quiz to find out if you know everything you need to know to maintain your bike.

Motorcycle enthusiasts come in multiple kinds, from those who ride for fun to those who are deeply immersed in the culture. No matter your reason for riding, you'll need to know the basics of motorcycle maintenance to ensure that you don't end up sitting on the side of the road one night waiting for your friend to load your bike into the bed of his pickup truck because you blew your engine... hey, it happens. 

Just like basic automobile maintenance, the smart rider needs to know a few basics. Leave the big stuff to the professionals, but make sure you can do the bare minimum.
