I have been talking to Bobby Sands and he will be unable to make the Big B tech day. I have offered to help him on the 12th. This is one week later then B's. If anyone else is interested, all are welcome to attend.

that's the spirit! i'm certainly in need of a TBS and i'd like to install a couple of power outlets for the IPod and the radar detector. i don't know what else, if anything, i'll have to do. i'm sure i'll think of something. be nice to meet you all to be sure.

oh, i seem to still have that coolant leak. dammit, it's so small that i can't see any liquid (unless i'm not looking in the right spots-- never had a water-cooled bike before) but i can, at times, smell it. i tightened up every clamp i could get to-- we'll see if i got it.

Bobby.

Still on!

I am still OK with it. The weather looks like it will be a lot better then Big B's tech day was. Do you have an idea of a time when you will arrive?
My address is:
Ken Novak
2541 Edgebrook Ave.
Akron, Ohio 44312
H-330-481-3133
C-216-210-4160

I am about 3 minutes from interstate 76. It is actually right behind the house on the other side of the creek.

Do you want me to pick up the stuff for the extension tubes?

Let me know Bobby what you want to do.
Ken

i can still be there saturday morning sometime. i think akron is about 3 hours from me. what time is good? 9 am? 10 am? 8 (gulp) am?

man, i would be really grateful if you could pick up the gear for the extensions on the tbs. i don't have a clue. of course i'll settle up with you when i arrive.

i'm trying to get a powerlet or two as well, but as i at mum's in wisconsin, i don't know how well that will work, but the real reason to come is to meet other strom-type people and do a tbs and see how far off my ride is compared to another. i think the chudder my bike exhibits is hair-raising.

No problem, I will have the stuff here for the extension tubes. As far as time, that is up to you. You are the one traveling to get here. I should be up by 5:00 or so and head to the garage about 8:00 to get things ready and moved around. (I have a small garage that is full of projects). If you want to say around 10:00, that's fine. Or 9:00ish, whatever works.

okay, that's great. i should be there between 9 and 10 am, no prob.

Buckeye, your girl graduates on saturday-- so bring her along. what could be a better graduation gift than a throttle body sync on a strom? i'd consider it an honor to provide the bike.


(this is really because i'm from michigan, isn't it?)

Sounds good Bobby. I have the stuff ready. It is a shame you are going to ride 6 hours for a 15 minute poject. But, any reason to ride works. Also I have extra tube to make the sink guage if you want it.

Mz, sorry to hear your tied up.

Anyone else that wants to stop by, please feel free.

Yeah that really was a great meet. Damn shame about the rain. Lemme check and see what time the graduation shin-dig kicks off, maybe I can ride beforehand and split off to the ceremony, you guys are planning on riding somewhere after the sync right?

Eh, you just don't want to get your bike dirty. ;) :)
I know. I really have to get over the clean bike thing. It's just that she looks so pretty when she's clean and shiny.

I would guess so. I don't know how BobbySands is going to feel after a 3 hour ride in. I would think that after working on the bikes and lunch, I could talk him into it. I'm going to look at a map and see if I can find somewhere that is back tward the direction he will need to go. Maybe like Lorain, Amherst area. That was a nice ride we did after breakfast the other day. See what happens.
