Got Brats, Hotdogs and Burgers left from the last tech session in the freezer. Mary Ellen is gonna make potato salad and baked beans. :dg
Bring what you want to drink and/or anything else to go with the stuff we already have.
ALL are welcome to stop by if your are gonna stud your tires or not.
Dang - wish you'd got back to me earlier.
Figgered when he said "stud" he meant the same things that go in the tires. So I just used the same bit and die grinder that I used on the rim protectors. Got a little careless when I did the one in my left ear (I'm right-handed, y'know) and went a bit deep. Some gray, gushy stuff leaked outta my head, but not for long - don't think there was much in there.
The stud probably woulda sealed the leak ok but I didn't have a stud gun so I just tried pounding the stud in with a hammer. Being that the hole was on the left side (and I'm right-handed, y'know) I kept missing the stud and hitting myself on the side of the head.
Dang, they just don't make hammers like they used to. Maybe Robert will let me buy one o'them badges if I stick some studs on the bandages, y'think?
I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!
Very nice, Photog. Thanks for going the extra mile.
What time we meeting tomorrow anyway? The old tech day thread said 10:00a so I'll be checking back on this thread bright and early.
We will start at 10:00 AM. The BBQ will be around noon.:dg People bringing tools/equipment need to be here at 10:00. The others can stop by anytime between 10:00 and 1:00.
There will be 2 set-ups so hopefully people don't end up waiting in line too long. The tire changer will be available too.
Anyone is welcome to stop by to watch/laugh/eat.
Got front knob mounted.
10 to 1? I may be forked
ehhhhhh-10 AM isn't quite going to happen.
11 is closer to reality. I will be there though. Don't be afraid to start without me!
OK guys, for those who might be on the fence...
I see turn signals and mirrors, so I'm thinking it's street legal. Perfect little bike for studded up winter riding. Someone should snag this little jewel!
A big thanks to Mr & Mrs Wheeldog... xlnt groceries, the perfect shop, tools, studs and knowledge! This'll be my first year riding like this. Been on the old sheet metal screw version many years ago but never rode the streets.
When I tuck up under my first sedan this winter I'll be thinking of you all
Nice to finally meet you too, Jack. Looking forward to catching up w/ you on the road. Rubber lube. Now that's the ticket.
Thanks for the idea, 5, the studs, and the critique. I really appreciate that one comment about always stay ahead of Photog. I'd have never thought to do that until you showed me some of his stud job.
Thanks Mary Ellen for the great food and Wheeldog for the hosting...I am stoked! I got my wheels on and I am READY TO RIDE!

Can you guys see the galleries? Cuz in Internet explorer it seems weird but firefox it works fine.
I can see em ok, but I am using firefox. Nice pics!!
Now that you are all studs, how about a block heater so you can start 'em up after sitting in the parking lot at work all day...
NP w/ IE6. Xlnt.
Block heater? My commute is short... I just trot downstairs.
No problems using Safari; that embedding method (quick preview) is a neat trick!
on topic: I missed a spot w/ the stud gun.
Ewww... not looking good for the home team in Squarebanks, eh?
Put one in last year......worked good down to 20 below.
Thanks to Mrs. and Mr. Wheeldog for the hospitality and great BQ. The ice credit goes to Jack and the pie to Robert. Thanks all!! Looking forward to hearing how these work out.
Thumbnails are great!
Helge just wrote that he is taking a month long Spanish class in southern Mexico prior to heading to that southern tip of SA. Rich's of Seattle rebuilt his seat and the Baja was fantastic.
