That's true! I'd much rather get information from PEOPLE than from a manual, paper OR online!
You don't have to flip through 180 people to get a simple answer, and the Internet makes finding the person who HAS that answer even easier.
People add perspective. e.g., Almost everyone on the Concours websites agrees the factory recommended 15K valve adjustment interval is unnecessarily short, and 25K is more reasonable.
People add details that aren't in the manual. Nowhere in the Canyon Cages (highway bars) installation sheet is the trick of cutting the bracket for the fins, a "cheat" that reduces install time by hours, and makes future maintenance a lot easier.
Now, as for setting the clock, or whether to check the oil level on the kickstand or on the center stand, yeah, ---> manual.
So did Soupy ever find the USB connector?
