    We still may drop by later. Is there room to park my truck and trailer? I may be out at goshen working our track with my tractor, wondering if I can get there easily and turn around?

    Mike had a great feed and we had the generous use of his garage and tools. I replaced the air screw in my carb with Todd's help and Kris did the three by three mod on his DRZ. The rest of em?.....well lets just say, lots of BS.

    Want to thank the host and hostess again for having us over. Just for clarification not quite a 3X3 it was more 2 1/8 X 3 5/8 with a little more height thanks to a moded KTM 990 snorkle. I am sure it doesn't have quite the spunk of those with 3X3 but I will feel better next time I lead JD through a creek crossing.:wink:

    Sounded like a lot of fun. Wish you guys didn't live so far away.

    Wife and I had to have an all-dayer to get over the pain of not being there. :lol3

    I'm out for any dealings with SLAP too. Have to run a passenger train on Saturday and church responsibilities on Sunday.

    Fine, but my Lightroom trial is over so I'm having to DL the paid version. So I probably won't get the pics off my camera until tomorrow.

    Looks like the tech day had a pretty good turn out, with food to boot. Always good to learn more about a bike, and GPS. I am sure thinking a GPS would be good to have, anyone have a Garmin Montana?

    Some good pictures Dragon, your arm needs to be a longer or cut a hole in the beard so you aren't blocking so much behind you.

    Thanks to everyone who came especially Kris, Colleen and Sharon who brought goodies to eat.

    When the weather cools off in the fall, we will need to do this again.

    Mike thank you and your wife for an awesome day. I had a great time and cant wait till I can call AR my home.

    Was great to meet some new faces, and enjoy some wonderful food. I hope everyone made it back home safe and sound.
