Thanks for putting up my pics Greg! Does the black bike make me look slimmer?

From my limited notes so far there will be about 9 or 10 attending. Please let me know if you will be attending so I can make the appropriate arrangements with the caterer. If anyone has any dietary restrictions or preferences (liquid or solid) PM me so you're not left out. I was planning on burgers and beverages. Almost forgot, I have all the necessary tools other than the "special" KLR tools for removing the rotor. Hopefully one of you kind folks attending can bring them along! Looking forward to meeting everyone.
So far it looks like I'm in although I'll be a bit later in the afternoon.

Kyle

I plan to be early - i have more than enough banked time to take off work.

Just trying to decide whether to use up my Rotella T from break-in or to buy some synthetic. (not sure if you need "motorcycle" oil or whether automotive synthetic is fine. I've read Mobil-1 or Castrol are good)...

My parts arrived yesterday too - doo, spring, gaskets, rotor bolt, oil filter.. I picked up a K&N air filter too, since mines probably due for service anyway.

Jody at DSP even threw in a hat

I'm going out on the F800GS at 11. Don't think I'm ready to give up my thumper yet, though!

The Triumph Tiger 800 (road version) is one that piques my interest. I guess Triumph doesn't go cross-country with a dog and pony show. (I love the Scrambler too, but my next bike is going to have ABS).

I saw the new Judge at Headingley last weekend also, when I went to buy a bolt to replace one that the road ate. Looks small! But to me any cruiser low enough to contraindicate wearing a wallet with a chain looks small ;)

I'm still looking forward to taking one for a boot in June, though.
