Maintenance Class 1 & 2 Info

Our maintenance classes are designed to help motorcyclists understand how to properly maintain their motorcycle. The first class gets you started understanding tools and basics. The second class builds on this and completes what we consider the basic DIY maintenance topics.


If you are interested in the Maintenance Class please email us. We need a couple of people interested before we will put a class on the schedule.

Class 1

  • Proper tools
  • Maintenance schedule & inspection: checking brake pads, fluid condition, suspension, etc.
  • Tires: proper PSI, tread ware, age, replacement, wheel removal
  • Chain and sprockets: inspection, cleaning, lubricating, adjusting, replacing
  • Levers and cables: lubricating, adjusting, replacing

Class 2

  • Oil and filter change
  • Brakes and hydraulics: bleeding, flushing, pad replacement
  • Electrical: battery wisdom, charging system diagnostic and repair, bulb replacement, basic diagnostic skills
  • Modifications: mostly discussion, details on exhaust, handlebars, mirrors, signals, luggage, and frame sliders
  • Suspension adjustments

While we may use your bike to demonstrate some of the tasks, we in no way guarantee your bike will get needed maintenance as part of the class. Email us about specifics you hope to get done in class. 

The class is taught by Miles Stone. My expertise is as a long time amateur motorcycle mechanic, and also opening and operating Milestone Motorcycles. Decades of experience, many many mistakes, and mentorship from professionals have  given me the tools needed to teach others to enter the world of amateur motorcycle mechanics..

**You must be 18 or over to take the Maintenance Class.

Highly recommend Rob as an instructor. He was clear in his directions and took a varied class of some with no riding experience to those with riding experience and just wanting a license -to all being able to ride and navigate the skills. He is very patient and could identify problems and coach solutions. Rob has a lifetime of experience riding different bikes, and he is a great teacher. I enjoyed the class and would come back for the next class to continue to improve my riding skills.

Signed up for the MSF course after obtaining my Honda Shadow Aero and didnt know what to expect. I had a small class and Rob was our instructor, he was nothing short of amazing! He is a very knowledgeable individual that really can see what you're struggling with and provide quick and effective tips to help you succeed. I feel incredibly comfortable and confident when riding thanks to him.

Best beginner friendly riding school I've ever taken!I took this over Total Rider and Riding Academy at Harley Davidson because the schedule was flexible. This school allowed you to skip the in-class session by taking eCourse and bringing the certificate on the first day of riding class.The instructor, Rob, was pretty chill and open-minded. He taught everyone with patience every time we made mistakes. He also shared his motorcycle journey with us, which I listened to as a lesson.Long story short, everyone in class passed the test! He went over the courses to make sure everyone understand the instructions.If you're looking for a riding academy to get a motorcycle endorsement, this is the place for you. And make sure you practice your balance, brake, and clutch skills with your bicycle before you enroll in the class. It will help you ride a motorcycle (I'm dead serious).

Vince is such a fantastic instructor and I only have positive things to say about our experience! My sister and I signed up for the Basic Riders Course with zero motorcycle experience. By the end of the 2 day course and lots of “hands on” drills on the motorcycles, we felt SO much more confident in our driving abilities.Vince always gave great feedback and never “mansplained” anything to us which I really appreciated. Great guy, great class and SO much fun learning a new skill.

Had a fantastic experience taking the Basic Rider course this past weekend. Our instructor, Rob, was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and supportive - all traits that were on display the entire weekend. His encouragement was exactly what was needed as everyone in the class was struggling through learning a new skill (myself included!).Rob made the both the written and riding portions of the class engaging through examples, demonstrations, and personal anecdotes. His passion for motorcycles is palpable and it makes the class that much more enjoyable. We had varying skill levels in my class of eight, and everyone learned something and became a stronger rider. This (new) location was a great environment to learn in, too. It's easy to find if you are in the general area (I was nervous I may miss it since Google Maps is a bit off). It is basically the only large, paved area around (attached a picture just in case it helps for triangulating). It was a great space to learn, without being bothered by cars or other distractions. Would highly recommend the Austin Moto Academy + Rob!
