Techie Stuff


Purposely named “Techie Stuff”  to intrigue the curious, this section is devoted to short, but, hopefully interesting and informative motorcycle related articles. Some of the content has been sourced from our “Friends of JMN”  suppliers and Traders, other content being obtained from a wide variety of general information readily available.

Many visitors may already be familiar with some of the information, but to others it may be completely new. In putting this all together we have learned a lot of facts ourselves of which we were previously unaware. The content is for guidance only, hopefully explaining (in Layman’s terms) some of the properties of the various items and materials that bikers have used for many years to help maintain their motorcycles in good running order.

We hope that you enjoy reading these articles and that they serve to provide either a refresher of past knowledge, or that we can all learn something new from them.
