Sonic Springs Install Gala Event

The mechanical and social biking event of the decade will happen Saturday, Sept 1st at Firedog's garage. We will be installing my new Sonics on Scarlett. It should offer those of stout heart and strong mind an example of pure Suzuki mechanical magic. Steve says to arrive at any time after 9:30 am so lets say 10:00 am to be polite-he works until 8:00 am that morning. This is not an event for the weak of heart. Alcoholic beverages may be consumed-In moderation-swear words may escape the lips of the frustrated, and swarthy men may be stripped to the waist if the current heat wave persists. Come one come all and witness the battle of man against machine all for the sake of suspension bliss. Survivors will be taking a ride through Amish Country or other points of interest to consummate the joining of spring and fork on the 650. I personally haven't been this excited since my first date with the class easy girl in high school.

Directions will follow as soon as I lean how to post them.

If you're planning on coming let me know so I can lay in enough grub for the grill!
We can also do some TBS's if anyone needs one done.

Any and all are welcome!

With a write up like that, I'd plan to be there even if I had know idea what a V-strom was! You don't need to count me for grub though, chances are I wouldn't stay that long (i.e. nine year old twin sons). I have so many farkles to consider for my new bike I'm paralyzed. Looking foreword to your advise on the matter.

That's a funny damned post. If I didn't live so far away and still have relatively decent springs on my newer bike, I'd take that one in.

BTW, you'll love the Sonics. I had them on my Wee. Even the "easy girl" won't wear those down. :-)

Have fun Buckeyes!

If I wasn't leaving for Santa Monica the same weekend - I'd be there.

If you go out in public as a group, don't sit across from the women's restroom and get called names.

Heavy H, it looks like we'll have some good weather so you may want to consider the trip out...

I also found out that I have the Big Ten network so the Buckeye's opener will be on. Again, any and all are welcome.

I'd like to stop by, just to say "hi". I'm only 20 minutes from Centerburg. Directions?
