No problem, be good to see you again.

Just wanna say that even tho I have no chance of attending in the foreseable future (livin in Oslo, norway :) ) I really love the fact that you're arranging these things CJracer.
The community owes you for taking the time and effort.

Cheers !

You'd have to really, really over-inflate your tires to do that.

You are welcome anytime (pref. summertime tho, gets a bit chilly in the winter :) )
Havent got a workshop myself, but I am on rather good terms with a local ktm dealer and could prolly arrange something with him.

Would need at least 4-6 days for the riding to be "Fyords" tho, they are like 7-10 hours from Oslo, on the west coast :)

With or without workshop days, you are most welcome here, just gimme a heads up.

Just saw this thread today! Sweet!

There is still plenty of learning to do about my 950 for sure...

About a week away.

Plans are for most of the work to be started on Fri. around 10am. Finished up on Sat. Test ride on Sun. I've got limited shop room this year, so unfortunately not everyone will be able to work on there bike inside. Oil changes are easily done outside anyways. I plan to offer as much info and demonstration that I can. You will be required to work on your own bike, (no better way to learn) but I will be more than willing to help and answer questions.

Some projects are:

Friday Aug 14th

-Rekluse/ update install Starting at 10 am.
-Start valve check / oil change/ waterpump rebuild
-Chain and sprocket changes
-Brake pads

I'll be in need of a Valve shim change before my next trip, so I will have my bike torn apart for demonstration.

- Fri Dinner at the house, Sloppy Joes, Salad, chips.

Fri/ SAt Aug 15th

- Install new chain and sprockets
- Check/ change brake pads
- Rim lace/build up
- Finish up valve check.

We may have a rider from the "North". All the way from Canada to demonstrate this Rim build-up.

- Finish up assembly

- Sat night dinner we plan to have food here. If you prefer anything special to drink, bring it along.

We've dug out our motorcycle movies and can have them going inside if you just want to lounge out or need a break.


Sun Aug 16th

- TIME TO RIDE
- Take some laps on the track, if anyone is interested in trying out a Rekluse in a 950 I'll have my available for Demos on the track.

Around noon or 1, I'm going to swap my 17" rims on and we can head out for a loop to get some lunch. If anyone wants to test this out, It will be available.

Gives you a chance to see how versatile this bike is.


If the weather is nice and the track is not a sloppy mess the trails will be open to ride all weekend. I have about a 2.5-3 mile loop that is great practice on a 950 ADV. It's doable on good stock 950 tires when dry, yet still fun on smaller bikes. If you want to stop out to see some wrenching and hit the trails on your MX/DS bike, let me know so I can anticipate how large a group we'll have.

Lunches and breakfast are still up in the air. I may have some helpers that can do some running to get food for the group.

We've figured about 15-20 riders for meals, hope that will be enough.

The local dealer (Petrie Motorsports) is giving us a price break on parts and accessories. They offer a lot of support and knowledge for this event. So if there is anything you need for this event I can order it and have it here waiting for you. Contact me so I can make sure all the correct parts get ordered. This has worked well in the past and ensures you have all the parts needed to finish the task at hand. Also makes your travel easier if you plan to ride here.

I'll have room for free camping, bring the mosquito spray, I live in the woods. There are also Hotels in Town, I'm about 5 miles out.

That's it for now, dig out your tool kits and and find Mukwonago on the map. Hope to see you here.

Looks like we are as ready as we can hope for. I most likely won't be checking PM's anymore. If anyone else wants to stop out to say hi, you'll have to contact someone on the list for info.

If something happens and you need to call, my number is on my site.

Safe travels.
cj
