    I'll bring some condiments for the burgers. I'll be there early to help you get bikes out of the garage and stuff.

    Cheeseburger soup? Gotta have it, don't need to know anything else about it.

    Thanks, Graham. Wanna come stay Fri night?

    Bobby just dropped off the grill, so he's still wonderful.

    I can't; I need to take care of my Aunt and Uncle's pets in the morning before I come down to the tech day.

    Do you guys want me to bring sauces like mustard and ketchup as well as condiments?

    That would be great, Graham. Um, whatever you think condiments are would do fine.

    Do you have a tire changer by chance?

    Yup, need a valve check, and change the tires as well as wiring in a keyed ignition.

    Don't have a tire changer machine, but we've changed lots of tires here. ThaRick did a tire clinic last time.

    Slight delay here. Lost one of the rubber bumpers on the hitch attachment for our motomule. Working on a jerry rig and will be on our way asap. Man I miss having a garage with a bunch of spare bits and parts!

    Still really hoping to get valve adjustments done on both our '09s. Coming from Westminster. Will pick up ice on the way as long as we can get this trailer safe to tow.

    Thanks for another great day Marty and Laurie. Thanks for everyone that helped me with my new HEED crash bars. Install was pretty easy with all the help.

    Thanks to all who showed up and helped others out, who donated food or other things, or were just good company. Thanks as always to Bobby for the grill, to Alan for doing exactly one doohickey (that was different), to Patrick for rocking all day in the 3rd garage bay. Met some new people (but I get confused easily). I'll get photos done at some point.
