Vin number dissection

Ive been searching around the forums for a method of dissecting or "reading" your VIN number. After reading a couple posts about being able to tell what production number your bike is as well as the actual production year and stuff like that, i was curious if anyone has seen a breakdown of all the numbers in a VIN?

does anyone know what the different numbers mean? or a place i can look if it already exists on this forum?

VIN Validation.

Guys.
Information overload for me.
I knew I should've paid more attention in class.
Maybe some kind hearted fellow can interpret my numbers for me.
It also may be due to my fever, as I'm sick right now. Ha. The doc needs a doc !
