Big B's 3rd annual techday & ride!!!!

Just wanted to post this over in this section as well....thanks for looking. Pretty sure mostly Ohio troopers will attend, but you never know. The consensus looks like we are having it on the 14th. See ya.............


Well guys and "hopefully" gals.....thought I would try to throw together yet another day of fun filled antics. Was trying to avoid the cold Spring rains, but also avoid super hot temps. What ya'll think about the 14th or the 21st of this month???? Burgers, dogs and drinks are gonna be provided....the rest is up to you. Nothing to invasive as far as wrenching goes.......but figured that TB synchs and any other tweaking would be the most needed. Not sure of the ride routes yet....so any input is greatly appreciated. I look forward to seeing everyone again, and I hope this is the biggest turnout yet!!!!

I'm down for the 14th as it seems to works best for most people that have responded...so I say we make it then.

One thing I'd like to add:

List what you want/need done so we can make sure everyone gets taken care of.

Check TB Sync for me please!!!

14th should work for me.
TBS may be in order.

I did a TB sync on Saturday, and it's getting new plugs, air filter, coolant, and brake fluid this week.

I guess I'm just coming down to say hello.

TB Sync, to go, with fries.



For a ride route, since you're in Westerville how about out towards Knox/Coshocton around the Woodbury cons. district, back down 541 (covered bridge country) and then 62 back to Cowlumbus? Very scenic, lots of twisty roads and little traffic. Just an idea.

Never met a dog I didn't like, a machine I couldn't break, or a woman I couldn't tick off.

Damn, I'm in Michigan for a week over that date. I'd like to come down. Next time, maybe.

Sounds like somebody just volunteered to be the ride leader...

There's few regrets my acquaintances can all agree on, but following me is definitely one of them. Legend surrounding my skills as a leader contains a story (unfortunately true) about 2 golf carts plummeting over a rock wall into a pond.

But hey, if everyone's brave, I'll promise to go slow and look over my shoulder once and a while.
