Bama Tech Session Saturday April 1.
After much ( well a little ) deliberation with other members the Bama Tech Session will be held Saturday April 1 at my place in Scottsboro AL. For those of you that have attended in the past you pretty much know the drill. We'll have breakfast at the Western Sizzler in Scottsboro AL at 8am and then get to work. You don't have to be there at 8 but by 9am we'll get started and so depending on what work you may need done then the earlier the better. Keep in mind that stem bearing replacements are about a 2 -3 hour job and if you need your valves checked your bike will need to sit for about 4 hours to allow it time to cool. Any other work that needs to be done such as oil changes and the like don't take too much time and we will be working on Sunday morning until around noon as well.
So if you are planning on coming and need some work done to your bike please post up here and list what type work you'll need done. If your coming just to watch or hang out with us then post up here as well. Everyone is welcome.
I'll have soft drinks and beer on hand and of course if you want to bring an adult beverage with you that's fine but please drink responsibly. We usually will try and break for lunch and either grab some pizzas or go out for BarBQ. However sometime we're so busy the time gets away from us and we work right though lunch, but nevertheless, we will try to make time for it.
If you need work done that requires parts get busy now finding out exactly what you need and get it ordered in time. If you're unsure of what parts you might need then post up and ask. We'll try to make sure that you get the correct items for your job. Also be sure to have any fluids that you may need...oil, fork oil, coolant, brake fluid or whatever. I'll have grease, lithium grease, moly paste and some items like that on hand but be sure to check before hand. Nothing worse than getting elbow deep into something and then finding out we don't have what we need to finish.
If you've never attended in the past then I encourage you to come by and check it out. It's a lot of fun and lots of good guys and gals around working on bikes and just having a good time. And you never know, you might just learn something or even better teach something.
So looking forward to seeing everyone and again, please post up if your coming so I can get a head count.
See you then!
