    If we need to supply buns and condiments for those who are bringing burgers/brats, let us know.

    Sounds like a good time to change my tires (first time!) and adjust valves (also first time). Hope there are some patient folks on site!

    Lots of time and patience on hand. Tools, too.

    Bring your own doo wrench if you want to, Solo, but I have three or four here.

    Modette will have his SENA set-up on hand to discuss. It's great to be able to record video, voice, and radio com chatter at the same time.

    And he will bring his bore-scope for anyone who needs a plumbing job. Discuss it with him... 'cause I don't want to know about it.

    One week notice on the next SgtMarty KLR Tech Day.

    May 14, anytime after 9am.

    SgtMarty dot com for more details and directions.

    Put down your tools, gather all the parts that you broke and the loose pieces that you don't remember taking off, and bring them all to the tech day. Someone will help you fix it.

    If all goes well on the plains today, there will be pie at the tech day.

    Mmmmm... pie.

    I plan to bring a bunch of stuff.

    SENA's
    Borescope
    Plastic Welder - (Anyone need something fixed?)
    Motorcycle Lift - (For people to use)

    With all the talk of Pie's I'm thinking of bringing a desert to share....Unless Marty hates Pies!

    Hate pie!?

    What?

    Richard has promised pie, so I'll hold him to it.

    As for the plastic welder, I have a repair I'd like to make on the KLR faring, so you can show me how it works. Might have to borrow it from you.

    Got a few free things we'll bring with for the good karma pile. I have a set of well loved Givi E21 bags that I'd like to sell. Ok to bring them?

    Sure, a swap meet breaks out sometimes.

    To anyone bringing something to sell: All I ask is that if someone is selling something, also be a good KLR community member by helping someone out with something during the day. In other words, don't just show up to sell stuff. Those who also bring freebies for the giving, you get a free pass 'cause you're all good.

    Got a guy bringing a CA model KLR and might need some help de-Californicating it.

    Four-day notice on the tech day.

    For anyone bringing food for the grill, do we need to provide buns and condiments or are you bringing those, as well?

    Just need to know.

    I'll open the garage at or before 9am, so anyone already there can help move my bikes and sweep the garage out.

    Usually, the early birds are there tapping their feet waiting to get started at 9am.

    Hey Marty, planning on bringing some cheeseburger soup.
    It's DELICIOUS. :-)
    Have an almost new magnetic tank bag if anyone wants it.

    I prefer bacon cheeseburger soup, with sauteed mushrooms.
