Motorcycle Issues on the rise

Looks like today is the day I call a mechanic to beat some sense into the motorcycle. I filled it up yesterday and now it's down to 2/5 bars. Leaked 2-3 gallons on the pavement and a trail of gas all the way to the transit station this morning. :( *sigh*

List of other problems to have looked into:
[ ] Axel Pin, Rear, Grooves Stripped (So I'm told)
[ ] Blinkers, Front Left & Right, Replaced
[ ] Brakes, Rear, No Response
[ ] Engine Knocking
[ ] Engine Temperature, Overheating (So I've been shown)
[ ] Gas Leak, Bottom Hose
[ ] Oil Leak, Check For

Yeah, it's a dozzy. Some of those should be really simply and straight-forward, while others may require some investigative work or notable labor.

Mechanical Failure: Understanding Failure

Why can't people listen when I say I have no clue about anything mechanical.

> Check this.
> No clue what you're talking about.
> How about this?
> Again, no clue what you're talking about.

> Hmm... have you
> Let me cut off that train before you get too far. I have no clue about anything mechanical.
> Well, you could still try this.
> *Makes whooshing sound over head*

Seriously, people. Stop it. It's frustrating, annoying, and only compounds the fact I am in completely over my head. The only way I would remotely understand what you're talking about is if you showed me, step by step, what you're talking about. Beyond that, shut up. You're beyond useless; you're insulting.
