Welcome to the forums. Like you, I have a basic knowledge of mechanics and always do my own work on my vehicles (barring needing any expensive equipment or tools). I've been learning to work on my 1100 (with the help of this forum) and find it very enjoyable. Around here salt on the roads in winter can make even a simple job on my truck an all day task with rusted parts, seized bolts, etc. It's nice to work on the bike where everything is rust free and things come apart as they should.
Like Keith said, post a pic or two when you get a chance and safe riding!
