If I can work out having that day off I may have to come out to this as a new rider/KLR owner I am sure there is quite a bit I could learn from this.

PM sent, very kind of you to offer. May be about time for the KLR and should help get some useful knowledge for the DR.

Hmmm. That's the day after our CDR trail-clearing party. Hmmm.

You accept us 3-wheeled KLR types?
Takes up a bit more driveway space,
...but it sure makes tire changes easier

Sure! Come on over!
Cannot offer a view of Mt Hood but an entire cul-de-sac.

I missed last years. I'm planning to leave for another trip this summer the prior weekend but really want to make it to this tech day. May have to figure some things out to make it work.

Good Job BSkye.

Is Craig coming up? He's a real asset to helping with KLR stuff.

I will try to make it over there. Maybe I can get some KLR expert* to tell my why my front end is all "wobbly" feeling. Not sure if it's just a KLR thing, or loose headbearings or something (My guess is that I've been riding too many KTM's lately )

I'll bring doo tools (provided a certain Inmate gets them back to me by then), shims, and some normal tools.

Reminder for you outta town folks, come up a day early and try the Alley Sweeper that IS going on still (Though not hosted by SFRC any longer).

Let me know if you need me to bring anything special Barb.

* This means you Martin!

Have them with me. Will check the PDX Meetup thread and post up a meetup if one isn't happening already.

Yes, Craig said he'll be there if his work schedule allows.
Hopefully he doesn't work that Sunday.

Bring anything else?

Something to throw on the bbq at lunchtime
