Default SgtMarty tech day, September 2010

I promised some folks that I would host another tech day at my place.

Okay, from three different forums, I only got a few people who expressed a preference, so here it is:

Saturday, September 18th, 2010 anytime after 9 AM

... and if that doesn't work for you, we can do it all over again the next day, Sunday, September 19th. If you intend to make it down on Sunday, let me know so I can plan on people showing up.

Post here if you need that Sunday, and maybe others will show up as well.

SgtMarty dot com for details and directions.

Sept. 4th is Labor Day weekend.

How about the following Saturday?

I was informed by SWMBO that we are having a Garage Sale on the 21st. Who wants to buy some junk?

SWMBO? SgtMarty I'm planning on being there. Though the way the folks on CL have been ignoring me I will probably still be Klr'less. Later is better for the chances of that changing. If I can't get my hands on one I'll just ride the Connie and come to learn by watching.

I think that day works great for me. Due for a valve check and maybe install better guards on the bars.

Thanks!

I am following this thread but if I do not get a change to break my KLR between now and tech day I'll have no reason to touch SgtMarty's white board.

I guess I can always be the water boy.

You can check it out on ADVrider. As I understand it, it's for street legal machines, specifically to promote Dual-sport.

August 28 and Sept 11 are OUT.. I'll be on a Valkyire ride to Taos on the 11th. Other weekends for Aug and Sept look good.

I'll collect dates for a week. Post your preferences.

I'll go with the popular choice of date and will update the first post when I have selected a date.

Woot! Finally got my hands on a KLR. Let the fun begin!

So if a tech day happens awesome. Not sure if I'd have a dedicated project planned but I'm sure things will start coming up. I haven't even gotten more than a brief test ride on the bike yet.

A Sunday might be easier for me to swing as well.

Damon, have a great Baja ride!

The 11th didn't work out, since I'll be in New Mexico. The weekend of August 28-29 is the Horizons Unlimited meeting in Silverton, and I'm scheduled to be one of the presenters.

Moderation is for wimps. How about a three-day tech day extravaganza?

I have signed up for "GeoMoto's Adventure: Southern Utah Labor Day Weekend" ride and chances are I will need a squad of tech-day guru's to put my pumpkin back together.
