JVB, thanks for being here and sponsoring. Maybe next year!
Feel free to come by anyhow. You can help, watch, or just eat and shoot the breeze!

Jim,
have to change my status to may be attending. The bike I want to bring is still spewing oil so I can't ride it. Maybe I'll just ride the KLR and toy with the exhaust again.

I just got past the blood blister from the last time we did that!

BTW I have more material left for packing your exhaust if you want it.

The weather looks great, just like the last time! I'm going to bring homemade pastries for the breakfast. Jim, do you think I'll be able to get one tire changed?

Well, now that you mention it, I do need to work on the exhaust of the KLR. Hopefully the part comes in tomorrow.

OK, put me back on the ATTENDING list.

A good activity before heading to work

Hi Gene,

Not a problem, we have two tire changers ready to use!

Freak storm. Fortunately it will be all clear over night and tomorrow. I am all set!

Here are the gifts from Beemer Boneyard!

Jim, you are very generous offering these tech days and you have a great weekend for it! BBY is also quite generous donating tools for the event! My hats off to you two.

Unfortunately I'll be working this weekend or I'd be there.

That was fun.

But then I guess I like it better when my bike does not need work.

It was fun hanging out and chatting while learning stuff.
