Here's a clipping from the preface:
This third edition of How to Set Up Your Motorcycle Workshop comes at an exciting time for America. The rate of technological change reached fever pitch. The infamous "baby boom" generation is moving from it's peak earning years into retirement, causing tremendous social and economic dislocations. Abou the only that isn't changing rapidly is government, where twenty years of ill-advised policies nearly ran the world economy over a cliff, only to be saved at the last minute by a short lived glimmer of intelligent leadership, which faded almost as fast.
What all this means to a motorcycle enthusiast is big changes in the way we do what we've always done, and what we'll always do in the future. Since the dawn of the 20th Century, when we switch from playing horses to playing motorcycles, we ride on, talk about, party with and generally obsess over bikes. The difference is that we now how more tools to integrate into our workshops, more sources to tap for information, and more skills to learn.

The DCC Crew has taken quite a few tips from it and so should you! C G Masi's advice and direction is not only accurate and on point with the culture garage builder movement it's easy to understand and implement into your own life as a lover of motorcycles. Rock on..
