"Windy with rain and thunderstorms - some may be strong in the afternoon. Storms may produce large hail and strong winds. High 59F. Winds SSE at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of rain 90%. Rainfall may reach one inch."

weather for tomorrow
Hail? Large hail? Anybody have a waterproof camera?

I noticed they said "may" produce large hail. It might only be small hail.

My camera is water proof. I'll take some video of the water crossings. Should I pack my riding suit or my wetsuit...

Badguy, if you don't have your bike together yet throw all the pieces in a box and we can do it here.

Good to go Thanks for the offer though.

I have a waterproof gopro, so along with all the other guys with cameras, getting video won't be a problem...editing it and uploading it is a different story though I'll get around to the dirtwise footage one of these days.

I once pulled up to a stoplight and forgot to put my feet down.

I couldn't get the bike beyond second gear either.

A wedding, seeing one of my buddies from Viet Nam, a full bottle of single malt and the better part of a bottle of Dom Perignon will make you forget simple things.

Hello All!

So are there any tech days planned in the near future?

Actually I pretty much have no clue about anything mechanical. I'm not an idiot per say, I can read the manual and go through everything with a bit of trial and error. I can also apply what I've learned quite easily to another platform. The problem is that I don't want to have to pay for the errors I might make. I'd much rather learn something right from the get-go. For that reason, I was hoping that there might be a tech day in the works so that I could assist and/or observe people doing some wrenching. Basic stuff would be cool like changing tires, adjusting the chain, adjusting the valves, etc. Anything more in depth I'd love also, but isn't a necessity. I'm really open for anything. Thanks for the offer to help though as I greatly appreciate that!
