Hey Nochicken - Welcome .... There's lots of good information and riding experience available on this site. Some beautiful scenic back roads in Southern Louisiana. Great alligator tail and boiled Cajun crawfish down that way. A couple of years back I rode Hwy 1 all the way down to Grand Isle.
Belt changes aren't difficult really, and there's lots of members that have done their own so there's plenty of assistance available. All you need do is ask. There are some sub-forums that deal with more specific maintenance details ("engine work" pertains to things like timing belts) so just post a thread there and the gang will jump to your side.
grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!
