Okay, so once we decide on a date for Big B's tech day, I thought maybe those of us riding down from the North could meet up somewhere and head down together. B wants to get things started in the morning, around 9-ish, and it'll take us around two hours to get there, so maybe we'll meet early somewhere.

Who's interested?
Any suggestions on the meeting place and time?
Any suggestions on the route down? Slab it or backroads?

I vote no to any slabs. :)

Looking at the map, State Route 3 takes you directly to Westerville. I have no idea what the road is like, though.

I vote for a meet in Medina at Rt 18 and Rt 71. As far as time, what about 7am. As far as route, how about 42?

I've taken 42 down, which is fun but once you hit Mansfield, man it's slow going. MFD has so many traffic lights it's rediculous. I'm down for whatever, let me take a look at that Rt. 3.

Actually, that Rt. 3 might not be a bad solution. We could jump on it straight out of Medina, and it skirts the Mohican State Forest, which is sure to be exciting. That's a definite possibility.

You guys taking anything down to install? I'll be doing a 43t rear sprocket, SpeedoHealer and MasterMike's rear spacers. I bought a set of the spacers used off that "other" forum. I'll also have the Leo's on by then as they're coming tomorrow. Somehow between now and then I need to get that stupid 600 mile service done too, come on weather!!!

I got nothin' to install. Just hoping to get a TBS done & gain a little confidence watching others doing a little wrenching. :)

I've been trying to get mine in for the 4000 mile service. I have an appointment tomorrow...I don't think I'll make it. :mad:

I may have my skid plate by then and I do need to do a ground wire.
By the way, this kind of sucks. I am typing this all from my phone.

Hey guys......the 9 oclock time isn't set in stone, I just meant that some people may start arriving by then. Do what is best for you guys, I know that it is a pretty good haul.

Route 3 is a nice road, and it will pretty much take you straight to my house. If you do take route 3, you will eventually come to the MAXTOWN/POLARIS intersection....hang a left on Maxtown. Go to the 2nd light & take a left on Hilmar. First stop sign "Pine Hollow" take a right, I am the 5th house on left.

Cool. In that case, I think Rt. 3 is a great route.
