Have a great time, hope the weather is good.

Fine with me!

Long range weather is looking like high 70's and sunny! Fingers crossed!

Oh yeah, I also have a new rear Tourance for a GS for a give-away to a lucky winner.

In, if I can get there! Picked up a new wethead a couple weeks ago and curious to learn more about it. Haven't been to Jim's since about 8 years ago when I had a new to me hexhead (maybe before the tech day thing got started formally). Looking forward to it.

Parts came in today so I'm ready to go. What time does this thing kick off? Anything else I need to bring besides my good looks, broken bike, and new parts??

Does anyone have any spare tabs for vario lock cylinders? I'm short some #3 (I need 4!) and #1 (I need 3). I'm happy to bring the 7x #2 tabs I have left over...

Yes, I'm in the middle of this:

Anyone interested in practicing tire plugging on a couple old tires I have? I have some old plugs as well!

Would LOVE to take advantage of this awesome offer of know-how and hospitality...and would even like to thank Mr. Skene for the "Oh God my retinas" P3 TSs recently installed. I have a set of Hagons on order and this would be the perfect venue to get them onto the Beast under adult supervision. But they don't arrive until mid-next week at the soonest. JVB, thanks for being here and sponsoring. Maybe next year!
