Not the best quality but legible, just.  From the owners manual.

Have you scanned the whole manual yet or just the 'interesting' bits?

I've done the whole manual but might re-do it using a higher resolution. Only problem will be the file size. Currently 6.5MB at a similar quality to yours so might take some time to do the whole thing at higher res!

Just scanned the schedule to be honest.  Might look at remainder later.

I'm somewhat surprised by the number and complexity of daily checks advised.
Checking pad thickness????

But done correctly it is a 20 min pre ride procedure...not something that I expect from a modern machine. Or that many will follow.

It smacks of "protection from litigation"..devised by lawyers... :010:
If you set a high level of checking and there is a problem it is easier to blame the litigant for not following the instructions.

That's exactly what it is. Also, I suspect they do that under the assumption that a typical rider might actually check those items once a month or so, but it's a good reminder of what to look for.

More checks than a fighter pilot does
There's old pilots and there's bold pilots, but there's no old bold pilots.
