Have not heard of one yet, though you can call one if so interested.
Check to see if any of the KLR experts can make it.
In general, when there are bikes to work on, food and beverages available folks will show up.
Maybe try to do it when a traveler is in town.
Do ou have some thing in particular you need help with?

I'd be willing to check riders sprockets, if it would help. I've just gained some recent knowledge on sprockets.

I don't have any particular mecanical issues, I do all my own wrenching. I thought there might be some other folks out there that might, though. If not, maybe just a barbecue or something. AK Charlie is the only KLR rider that I've met on the Peninsula. Would anybody be interested in something like that, maybe last weekend in August? I would volunteer my shop here in Kasilof if there's any interest. Thanks for the reply. AK Tim

AK TIM:

Most riders will probably making final prep's for the Labor Day bash in Kodiak. That would be a very close time gap. Just wondering.

Are you home now? I'm going to give you a call if you are.

This is the first I've seen of tech days in Alaska, I feel kind of silly for not looking sooner.

I have a lift along with a few tools I could bring to the next one. I don't have any work planned for my ride, but just being there and learning/helping is enough reason for me to go.

I look forward to participating. I'll let you know as soon as I do whether or not I can make it. Thanks for getting the ball rolling.

I generally have a tech day in Anchortown early in the season.
If you are wanting to do something sooner, or /and the Valley, you can set one up. Sometimes Roger has one in Wasilla...he is outside riding until Marchish.
