Unfortunately I will not be able to make it tomorrow. Great shame as I was quite looking forward to getting together with some more knowledgeable folks and working on my bike.
Hopefully I will be able to make the next get together in the spring.

Sorry about those who aren't going to make it tomorrow. Weather should be cool-ish.

Anyway, there will be plenty of room in the garage and house for those who show up. We now have a big grill for heating up the food.

We will have hot water for tea or cocoa, and coffee for those who want it. Might make some breakfast burritos, too.

I think I'll shoot for meeting at the Denny's if folks are still doing that. I was going to bring some burgers to add to the brats if I can figure out how to travel with em. Likewise I have to figure out how to bring beer. If I strap everything to the back think we'll end up with explosions and flat beer?

Ordered my Doo kit too late and it's still in the mail :/ So I'm just along for the ride and looking forward to it. I have plenty to learn and my bike will be so grateful

I have a couple EM doos here, and maybe a torsion spring if you want to use them and send me yours later when they arrive. Your choice.

Hey thanks! Ya if that works out I'll probably take you up on that. Good to know I'll at least have one project to work on while I've got all the help.

Whew! About 25 people through the day, only some minor drizzle, everything got done, no catastrophes, and no drama.

Worked until about 7pm and everyone got out before the rain got serious.

I think Laurie got some photos, and I'll try to get them posted tomorrow.

Thank you and Laurie for putting up with this quarterly invasion (and your neighbors too). I got the 40 cent tour of your house, and it's fantastic. Even though Tom was not 100%, he had a nice time chatting with everyone (he's not a wrench turner).

Now that the KLRs are out of storage, running and registered, we'll take some local rides here in Bailey to get acclimated (from Goldwings).

Our second appointment fell through, so we did a quick Cabelas run and went home just in time for rain/hail. It did that for most of last night off-and-on.

Laurie, we have a lunch date and a wing ride!

Wanted to say thanks to you both again for hosting the GTG Tech day once again. Thanks Jeff for helping me find some instrument issues on my non KLR.

Thanks again Marty and Laurie for another great day.

As Marty said, we had a good turnout. It was fun to see old friends and meet new ones at the same time!

Thanks to all the folks who brought goodies - pastries, donuts, burritos, deviled eggs, brats, burgers, and so forth - talk about a feast! Thanks to Bobby, who provided the big grill that let us cook the food while participating in the other activities of the day, and a special shout out to Graham for doing the grilling.

And thanks to all the folks who pitched in and helped others do specific projects so Marty could oversee everything - we couldn't do this without your help.
