Your tutorial videos are a major reason on why I purchased a Burgman 400! I started watching your videos because I found them to be very helpful even before I purchased a Burgman. Videos on Dr Pully sliders and working on CVT's translated nicely when doing maintenance on my Buddy Blackjack. When I was looking to get another scooter, there was only one that came with a whole library of tutorials for maintenance and upgrades! (And I am in danger now of your videos convincing me that a DJI Phantom and GoPro would be great fun to own as well!)

Along the way, it's been fun to see the growth evident in the film work and expertise across your videos. If you do end up shooting new how-to videos, I'm glad to hear you will be leaving the old one's up. Although you are now shooting with more professional equipment, the old videos still retain the talent you have in visually presenting the job in a clear step-by-step manner.

If you will be shooting new videos, my one request would be one on valve adjustment. The ones on inspecting the valves was great but there was no Part III!! What happens if my valves ever need adjustment? I have done screw and lock nut valves but never bucket and shim

Keep up the good work!

Hey Mitch,

I vote for new videos....only because you offered. Your current videos are spot on and IMO, get the job done. If you want to re-do them, I say go for it!

Your videos were on speed dial for me when I/wife owned our 400. I send fellow 400 riders your links because they are so good, thorough, and well done.

If you and LeDude ever do a mash up, we are in fix-it heaven.

Hey! For something as seemingly simple as installing new Kuryakn grips, your video helped me game plan better (since we are messing around with glue!) and pointed out a few tips. Always appreciated sir!

Hey @micbergsma !
Thanks for your videos, they are truly really helpful. I'm not sure if you checked video stats, but they have huge amount I=of views worldwide. What I've seen is that Italian and Russian communities are watching them a lot.

Your old videos are great, but if you will decide to record new ones, think about possibility of adding subtitles on other languages. If you want to, I can help you with Russian. In that case your videos will be popular even more across worldwide Burgman and skywave communities

Mitch, your Burgman how-to videos have been enormously helpful to me on numerous occasions. Thanks so much for videoing/editing/posting them!

I was there and ...

Man, when you watched the guy drive away on your Vespa, I was experiencing the pain myself.

I can't thank you enough for the "closed captioning" subtitles. My $1500 hearing hearing aid is a fifteen hundred dollar piece of junk.

Loved the bike wash in the Texas sunshine and the way a young body can bend, squat and move around without kinking up.

I always appreciate the tips.

The banner featuring the scooters lined up across the top of the new page sure works for me. As they say, WYSIWYG.

Same here. I watch all sorts of different repair videos regardless of model. I'm after the preparation advice, tool usage as well as general technical tid-bits. For instance, I watched a 4 piston Nissin caliper rebuild video yesterday to refresh myself for the upcoming work on the 650. As it turns out, I had completely forgotten that you can put the pressure seals in BACKWARDS, which is not a good idea. Keep on Burging, Mitch!
