Ohio Tech Day

Big B & I are planning a tech day some Saturday soon at his place in Westerville, to get together, do some work on your bike with lots of help from the gathered crew, grill out, etc.

If you'd like to attend, post here, I'll keep track of those who are interested and let you know when & where.

Mike

The Dallas area chapter of Two Wheeled Texans have had a couple of Strom specific (with a few exceptions) tech days so far this year. Very fun and educational. The focus of the January day was installing about 8 sets of heated grips (came in very handy that day) and some fuse boxes. February was more of a welding, replacing chains, brakes day. And of course, you have to break out the grill. Lots of observing and learning going on.

Cool, hopefully this will pick up some steam. I'm sure there's plenty of choice routes to C-bus from up here aside from 71S

I hope so. I'd be up for the trip as long as you kept me off 71. I hate riding on the interstates.

Boy......guess I better get to planning!:mrgreen: My home is welcome to all that want to come.....and you bet your butt we will go for a ride. So.....what kind of "fixes", tune ups, or general Strom talk do you guys want to cover? These bikes are so good, I'm sure we won't be spending much time tuning.
