Bancroft Meet and Greet changed to April 24th, 2016

Because of the unseasonable weather we are rescheduling Bancroft to to April 24th. (Two weeks later than originally planned.)

Apart from the date the location and everything else will be the same.

2015 DL1000 New July 2015 193,000+ km, 120,000 miles.

That's perfect. I still haven't had the chance to put my bike back together and a test run. Thank you Mother Nature for helping not miss this ride! I am in on the 24th

Yeah same here Dave. My bike is still on the lift, but with new tires, chain, sprockets, brake pads and valve adjustment all done. The annual greasing of stiff or sticky bits and a shakedown run were all that was needed before Sunday. It was tight, but I was one of the frozen foolish farts ready to brave it.

But now that I don't have to get it on the road by then, and while it's still on the lift, AND it's still winter out, I'll be adding a couple Highway Blaster horns, extra lights front and rear, four relays (headlight, horn and aux. light). Then that shake-down run, or two - be nice if it doesn't burn to the ground with all that extra lectricity.

I won't know for another couple days whether I work the 24th. And if so, whether I can switch shifts. Sure hope I can make it. This nice little ride and lunch thing is becoming a habit I don't want to break.

Great call, Tom. I had just logged onto the site to say that while I was ready for an early spring ride, a mid-winter ride was out. (boo, hiss)
Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 24th, and boring everyone with the tale of my first Dualsport Adventure ride. (Bethany on the 17th)

Sometimes making a wrong turn just makes the ride that much better ,,, go an extra mile it`s not so crowded there!

Be great if you could make it!

Just put gas in the tank and make sure the tires have some air and off you go!
