Thanks for the day, Blaine! Was a good one for noobs...hoping that we didn't scare them off. Not a lot of work perfomed on the R75, but I suspect Brad and Blaine are still working on it.

Tasks performed:

Got Jay's pretty R90/6 purring...valves adjusted, cables and carb sync, points gap, needs new choke cables, and properly rerouted the throttle cable on the left. Pulled a center stud, no biggie, was done by the PO. But a few people had not performed a valve check so it was good that was covered...Thanks Len.! I only snagged a few photos.....

Nice to meet you guys and Ross, tell your tale someday. I'd like to hear it as not many airheads get to run the TAT.

Brad just departed. He stayed to the bitter end and helped me get my rear main seal replaced.

I can't believe what a success this day was. So glad that so many people showed up! This definitely bodes well for another one being hosted. I heard whispers of one possibly the 2nd weekend of December.

If we keep this cycle up, we could have everyone on a running airhead eventually!

Good times

Yes, thanks again, Blaine, for hosting. I wish i could've stayed longer. Sounds like everyone was able to ride home. Was there a final verdict on the r90? Colortunes are cool.

Speedy recovery to you, Ross. Good to see you again.

Prof. Len, what's the next class? I'm in!

Once in a while. I'm usually only there during the work week and my hours don't leave many opportunities to get out. Next month I have week long class on days and will have my nights free.

Blaine thanks so much for setting up this training day. Not only did I learn a ton, I met a bunch of nice and extremely knowledgeable people. Having just moved to ATL it was great meeting everyone.

The ride back home was a DREAM!!! I really would never have guessed my bike could run so smooth.

These were the only good pics I took (was too busy leaning stuff).

Thanks again.

Round two?

I'm thinking you should have another in the late spring or early summer. I need an excuse to head back south on the bike!

I can see the conversation now:

Border guard: Where are you going?
Me: Atlanta GA.
Border guard: What is the purpose of your trip?
Me: I'm going to get my carbs synchronized and chew the fat with a bunch of people I know on the internet.
Border guard: Step inside sir..

Yeah, ya'll hit the stuff I need to do, carb sync, valves. Unfortunately, training a couple of young puppies took precedence yesterday. Next time!
