Any interest in another "tech day"?

I have ordered a new rear tire and, as long as it gets here in time, I will be installing it next week. At the same time I will be doing a TPS check, throttle body sync, and installing a new horn. Anyone interested in watching and maybe learning, or offering their own brand of advice? Heck, if you just want to hang out that's OK too.

While I plan on working on my bike, if someone wants to bring their own project we'll tackle that too. I will set the whole day aside so we'll have plenty of time.

I'm thinking Tuesday the 17th or Saturday the 21st depending on interest. I'll have plenty of coffee and soft drinks and come lunch time we can order pizza or something.

I realize it's short notice. Any interest? If so, which day?

Mike, I would like to be there to learn and work on my strom but I am busy on both of those dates. If you do this again please let me know and I'll take off of work. Mystrom

Mike, great idea. Either day and I can be there to lend assistance or create problems. Just let me know which day works for you and others.

Mike,

I’m definitely interested and either day works for me. Saturday would be preferred but I can probably take a “mental health day” on Tuesday. I’ve been thinking about a louder horn for my bike and would be very interested in watching one installed.

Winnie, love that term 'mental health day'. I can think of so many times I should have used one of them instead of fighting the bad fight(work). Hope to see you at Mike's.

I'd love to

A tech day sounds like a great idea! Saturday would work better for me. I hope to see you soon!

That's a great offer, Mike. Good on you. I don't even own a tool box, so I'd never take advantage of an deal like that. Tomorrow all of the aftermarket junk should be on my new Vee so I'll post some pix of the GPS and horn mounts/connections.

So when are we gonna ride again?

Another ride? Are we going to ride again? I sure hope so!! Anybody out there want to do the next ride?
Hey Rod, are you coming over to Mike's for the tech session? Take a "Winnie" mental health day and come join us!!!

Hiya Jim!

I've been working on a project that might be my entire year. I should be done in another week or so. Sure hope we win the job. I'd rather be ridin' than wrenchin'.

Who knows that Cedar Key to Lake City to Tallahassee to Georgia area?

Wow that would be great. I love that Florida armpit area. I've not explored it much but someone here sure must have. I know Roy (flrdr) our Connie rider has some maps and routes including this region. Perhaps Roy is out there listening. We have not seen him in a while.

Perhaps time to start a new thread so as not to clutter up Mike's tech day.
