Seattle, WA, May 08, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Motorcycle maintenance is an on going learning session between rider and bike. GlobeRiders LLC, of Seattle Washington, has created a new motorcycle instructional DVD to help BMW motorcycle owners know their bike better. The video shows how to deal with and understand maintenance issues that can arise on the road.
GlobeRiders BMW R1200 GS Adventure Touring Instructional DVD is hosted by Helge Pedersen, international motorcycle expert, adventure traveler and founder of GlobeRiders LLC.
The DVD includes over 4 hours of video programming on 2 DVD discs. “If a rider was on an extended ride on their BMW R1200 GS motorcycle, and a tire blew or the engine clogged and they’re miles from help. What are the best steps to fix the problem and get back on the road?” states John Wehman, GlobeRiders Marketing Manager. “Being prepared gets them back on the road quickly… not being prepared can take hours or more.”
“Our DVD covers tire repair and just about anything else that’s connected to this popular BMW motorcycle”, says Wehman “We want to raise the confidence level and prepare riders to have an enjoyable and safe trip.”
The segment menu on the DVD provides listings of all subjects covered in the program. A biker could even load the DVD into their laptop computer and view the step-by-step procedures, on location, as they work on their bike.
Subjects covered in the program include a tour of compartments and equipment on the bike, tips on storing tools and parts for maintenance and emergencies, product reviews, accessory recommendations, special parts, tire changing and puncture repair, BMW luggage system, luggage variations and packing tips, air filter cleaning and change, CANbus System, oil filter changing, and front and rear brake repair. The DVD also includes bonus sections showing the BMW R1200GS with sidecar use and Helge Pedersen’s modified BMW HP2.
The DVD also contains helpful tips from host Helge Pedersen. Helge shares his insight gained from years of long distance motorcycle travel throughout the world in all kinds of climates and terrain imaginable.
Whether a rider is avid on doing their own maintenance, or prefers just to ride and have their local shop do the work, GlobeRiders feels this DVD will provide helpful information and knowledge that every rider should be aware of to get the most out of their motorcycle.
GlobeRiders BMW R1200 GS Adventure Touring Instructional DVD has a suggested retail price of $34.95. It is available, along with other GlobeRiders DVDs, via online DVD retailers, motorcycle dealers, parts outlets and retailers nationally.
