    Was just thinking for Global Girl.

    If she could bring her bike and tires with her for the meet and greet, I could bring my balancer and wheel weights, tire irons and air pump.

    We could swap her tires for her in the parking lot! :huh

    Just need a center stand or something to hold the bike up! Milk crate anyone?

    What say you fellow inmates?

    I think that's up to her. I wouldn't do it at Gravy's though. Kind of a small parking lot.

    Oh man,

    If it wasn't on a Saturday morning I'd scoot over and meet you all. That is the only day of the week I have scheduled work. Guess now I have to set one up for DBQ.

    How about lunch at 1:00 on the 21st of March in Dubuque at the Village Inn? If anyone wants to set up a ride before that would be great, I will be working at the Farmer's Market at 11th and Central until noon. If you stop by, I have the knife sharpening stand.

    1) KTM265
    2) 30Bones (+ friends? )
    3) El Guero

    I was going to ride my Adventure over but tonight I went to fire it up and the battery was dead...I'll have to get a new battery this week. I charged it last week.

    I'll be wearing my Alpinestars jacket so I should be easy to spot for you... I'll wait at the door for you guys.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    There are a group of riders from the area all non Harley, maybe some Buell, that get together to talk bikes once a month in Waterloo. Nothing formal, just show up anytime from 6-8 Tuesday night. In the summer some get together the Sunday after for a ride. Usually some go to the Crud Run and a number that go to track days.


    "monthly get-together at L.J.'s from 6:00 - 8:00.
    Stop in, have a bite and talk about the motorcycles that we will eventually get to ride!!
    Ralph Longus"

    Anyone welcome...have a good time. L.J.'s is a sports bar just off Kimbal Ave and on the South side of town near hwy 20. Let me know if you need more directions.

    You're terrific! I'll bring the tires with me. If it works out, great. If it doesn't work out, that's okay too. I appreciate the thought anyway. I hope we have good weather that day to ride. I'm tired of the cold. Thanks very much!

    You have a 640ADV right? I bet my Duke battery is the same. If you want me to bring it tomorrow LMK and you can use it in the mean time. Also I bet yours will come back with a charge if it's not too old. I can lend you my trickle charger as well to put on it for the week? Call me in the morning around 8-8:30 if this is a go for ya.

    Also Batteries + by happy joes prolly has one in stock for it.

    I gotta get some sleep :lol3

    El Guero - I was believing everything you said :rofl until you told us you had a date!

    Did you transfer to U of I or did you get a job in Iowa City?

    I graduated from UNL and got a job at U of I, and I'll be starting grad school there in the fall. The date situation is sort of weird, I may have a funny story about that later :lol3
