A logbook for motorbikes Wiki

This is a program that is aimed for bikers who like to go on long trips. The idea occurred to me when I was thinking of a long weekend trip and realized that I did not know a lot of things that I should have. eg I was making a trip of 800 km. So how much petrol I will be using and therefore how much cash do I need to carry. Then I started thinking about other things and the idea of this program came into existence.

For a biker it will be when the servicing was done, How much it cost so on and so forth. It will also keep track of breakdowns that might occur. So after a breakdown has occurred user simply enters the details of the breakdown. This will in long term and with sufficient data be able to predict the next breakdown. Though this is not an exact science but it is by mathematical probability. So if a user has a Tyre puncture average 1000 km. then it should be able to predict the next one, Even though it may not be accurate but it will at least let the rider know that this event is due so carry some extra cash.
