comment What problems to look for when buying used motorcycle
As @mikes says, a huge behemoth of a bike like a Goldwing is a risk as a first bike. Almost everyone drops their first bike at least once and with all of that weight and plastic a drop is even more likely and expensive to fix. I would strongly recommend something a little smaller/lighter to get used to handling a bike before going for a heavyweight. Even if you only keep it for a few months, you could learn a lot.

comment What functions & features should I look for when buying a multimeter?
Given the choice between a 5 year old fluke off eBay and a new cheap unbranded DMM with the same features, I would take the fluke every time. They stay in calibration for decades and can take some serious abuse. Few other DMMs will survive being thrown around a workshop as well as your average fluke.

comment How important is a fuel cap?
@Davy8 - I suspect that fuel theft would be far more common in the US if petrol prices were close to the $8.5 per us gallon that were are paying in the UK at the moment. *8')

comment How important is a fuel cap?
As I said With many vehicles, it is the filler cap itself which locks the petrol tank, as an example, see the illustration in this article: green.autoblog.com/2011/03/27/… Try searching for "locking fuel cap" in a google images search and you will find loads of them.
