Default Cleveland (and NEOH) Holla!

What's up Cleveland riders? Why are we not out cavorting and having tech-days like Chicago?

I'll be out "cavorting" all weekend. I'm up for a tech day sometime soon, maybe a few degrees warmer if I gotta travel more then 100 miles or so.

Thanks for the reply Offalot! Where you from? What do you ride? I guess maybe I should introduce myself a little better too...

I'm in Cleveland Heights. Some might notice the general lack of dirt in the Cleveland suburbs, but that didn't stop me from getting a dual-sport. I got my green (the fastest color, btw) one in April of 07 from a guy in the middle of Ohio. I have done a little off-road, but I really wanted this thing as an all-surface touring machine. One long interstate trip was enough to convince me that this bike is not made for interstate riding, so now it's my off-road ride. Despite years of tarmac, I am still completely useless in anything greasy. I've tried my hand at snow and I'm still alive to tell about it. I guess that's my story.

@dsump: That would be awesome. We should pick a day and see who shows up. I'll see how many tools I can pack onto the back of my KLR. Unfortunately, I am useless.

On another NEOH note: A friend of mine who rides just opened up an accessory store and is promising killer prices on tires. Hit me up for contact info. It will probably be in my sig pretty soon.

No, they are just planning on going from June 2010 to March 2110. Almost a century long ride. I'm in.

BTW, would love to get together with the KLR nuts in CLE.

Ok guys, pick one of these two dates: April 17th Sat, or April 24th Sat. Say 10am. I will buy some burgers, hotdogs, chips and I have will have pop and beer. Lets narrow down the date in this thread and after we get it set in stone I will make a new thread to announce the tech day. I know we may have a couple from the Columbus area. Let me know what kind of tech help you need prior to the day, so I can make sure we have extras of anything we may need. I have all the tools we need to do the Doo. I think making the day in the next few weeks will give everyone enough time to order stuff they may have forgotten. The only mod I haven't done is the 685 kit, but I'm capable of giving it a try. Plus Wyman wont mind if I put him on Speakerphone.

I'm up for either as of now. i only need to do the doo as I have been diligently doing a bunch of other mods myself in the past few weeks, thermo, 22c, exhaust cutout, heated grips etc. etc.(so hopefully I can lend some of my newly acquired knowledge). I'll order the kit soon and be out there whenever it is scheduled. Thanks for doing this.
