    Jim,
    have to change my status to may be attending. The bike I want to bring is still spewing oil so I can't ride it. Maybe I'll just ride the KLR and toy with the exhaust again.

    BTW I have more material left for packing your exhaust if you want it.:deal

    The weather looks great, just like the last time! I'm going to bring homemade pastries for the breakfast. Jim, do you think I'll be able to get one tire changed?

    Well, now that you mention it, I do need to work on the exhaust of the KLR. Hopefully the part comes in tomorrow.

    OK, put me back on the ATTENDING list.

    A good activity before heading to work

    Jim, you are very generous offering these tech days and you have a great weekend for it! BBY is also quite generous donating tools for the event! My hats off to you two. :clap

    Unfortunately I'll be working this weekend or I'd be there.

    But then I guess I like it better when my bike does not need work.:D

    It was fun hanging out and chatting while learning stuff.

    Thanks to Jim, his wife, and all those who helped to feed us both morning snacks and lunch. It was great learning how to adjust rocker end play and getting the ABS system bled. Also thanks to Beemer Boneyard for the generous gifts that were raffled off. Awesome tech day!

    Kudos and many thanks to Jim and everyone who contributed to the tech day. I enjoyed meeting folks and watching the wrenching. Maybe someday I'll get up the courage to try it myself. (To that end, I'm looking forward to watching the JVB videos...)
