Edugeek bikers - decent site/book for general motorbike maintenance?
Went on a trial ride thing and now have a potential New Expensive Hobby. Because I'm a sysadmin, I want to rtfm now rather than on the side of the A16 in the pouring rain with no mobile signal.
I've read up on specific issues on the MCN forums and a few other places, but I'm after a general read (like an O'Reilly book for bikes) so I can go "wait, I read how to fix that" when I run into the problem.
What obscure and useful sites / books do you use? I don't have a specific bike in mind (other than "usable on dual carriageway but not beefy enough to encourage idiocy"), unless there's a generic Haynes-style manual?
