I'd show up.
Just as long as it's on a Sunday. (I work Saturdays)
It'd be fun to meet some peeps.



Keep us posted.

Sweet! I missed this last year.
I'll be leaving the Irvington (NE pdx) area if some peeps wanna rally together.

I personally would love to do a valve check...
And maybe a fork oil change and drop some progressive springs in.

should be fun.

I'll probably come out for that, too! Scott_PDX (hi Scott!) helped me check mine last fall, but we had to order some shims and then I never got around to actually replacing them. Got everything ready to roll, though. I am also in NE Portland, so I'd be down to meet up and ride out with some other folks.

Thanks for setting this up B-Skye. I'm planning on coming out also, provided I make it alive through the Alley Sweeper!

I see you made a post on KLR650.NET, that should drive some more KLRazies out . KLR World might be a good cross post also (Haven't looked there myself). Let us know what to bring/contribute to the festivities. I'll try to make it earlier this year than your last one.

Don't forget - for those of you who are going to check valves to get there early and work on something else for a couple of hours. Your engine needs to be cold to get an accurate reading. I'll bring my meager valve collection and Doo tools as well.

I should be able to make it, maybe even make a weekend out of it.

I posted on facebook on the Oregon DSR page, too. What to bring: anything you want to throw on the Bbq next to a bunch of Johnsons (personal favorite) ! Will have plenty of sides, bring your own beer - what DO KLR riders drink? ....probably something that tastes like everything, but not like anything in particular.........lol! There is a bike lift - will see about a second one, we have Doo tools x2 at least. As Scott mentioned any bike needs to be cold in order to do valves, so there is space to park bikes the night before. I have a bit of a fenced off area next to the house, gated. I am gonna contact the folks over on KLR .net to see about some shims.....seems that just about sums it up.

The OP didn't ever respond. He should get in on this!

Is the location getting PMed out or have I gone blind

I have some tire irons and can help teach folks how to change tires, or at least how I change tires: cursing and glaring. Should I bring 'em?

We're always eager to learn a better/easier way if you know 1 !

Hell Roachy will definately be in for a tire fitting demo, from his last fiasco at the AVR!!
