    Just a little bump!

    Saturday looks like mid 60's and sunny! Perfect tech day weather!

    Let me know if you wish to come, and/or still need an address!

    Looks like a nice sized group showing up, but there is room for more!

    Jim - I just learned about it at Laurel Fork and I'm in. Would you send me your address so I can have tires shipped to you. Thanks for hosting. - Chuck

    Jim,

    more bump!
    from one of the inmates who sent you a PM a month ago :huh

    Don't want to miss this tech day but I have a slight schedule mix up. Will still try to make it and maybe help with cleaning, grilling or whatever this dirt ready hands can do.
    Hoping to catch up and learn, meet local riders and have fun.

    Cheers!

    Jim as much as I hate to say it ... looks like I am going to have to pass. I thought I could swing it but timing won't allow for a nealy 1000 mile round trip this weekend. Man it sure sounds like fun and a huge learning experience. :waysad

    Hey Jim,

    Sorry for the late notice, and I was really looking forward to coming out on Saturday, but have just found out I need to be in Pa. on Saturday - something that can't be helped.

    Here's to hoping you have a great day. Looks like the weather is going to cooperate very nicely.

    Thanks again. I'll look forward to any pictures you might post.

    Still room, come on down. We start at 8:00, and usually run to dark.

    PM me for the address.

    Hi Jim,

    I will be by your house around 9 or 10. Should be a nice day. I suspect Bill and Chuck will probably come along as well.

    Cheers,

    So, if you are coming, as you come down my road, this is what you will see on my driveway.

    My garage is ready, as is the rest of the house.

    Plenty of room to work, tools, some knowhow, food and great weather! What more could you ask for?

    What a beautiful day for a tech day! Lots of work was done, some fun was had, and new friends made!

    I'll post up some photos later, but thanks to all who attended and helped!:clap
