Overall I'm pretty disappointed with this title.
I've worked in a motorbike workshop so decided to rent this to see what advice was being given out to people and to be honest, I was slightly gobsmacked at times.
The camera work is dodgy at times, poor Mr Whitham (an excellent bike racer) sometimes ends up in the way or you can't always see what he's talking about.
As for the script, if this is a 'foolproof, beginners guide to servicing and maintaining' your vehicle than I seriously hope that, if you end up relying on this to help, you go and buy a workshop manual too or leave it to someone who knows what they are dealing with because some of the items covered in this title are not really dealt with properly.
It slightly scares me that an owner of an 180mph bike can watch this, think 'I'll have a go at adjusting my drivechain.' get it wrong because they've seen the advice given on this disc and either cause damage to their machine or potentially injure themselves.
It is also assumed that you have certain items ready eg a used oil container to put the old engine oil in, surely if you're watching this you've never changed oil before so won't have a container?!
On the plus side it is good that people can see what it's like to work on these machines and I will agree that some of the things that are covered are easily done.
In my opinion you should only rent this if you are curious and not if you are serious about working on your scooter/bike.
