OK, many have been asking about another TECH SESSION. So I've decided to do a BBQ at the same time.

Mark your calendars:
So here it is: July 28 th rain or shine. Starts at 10am until ??
I'm hopping to get Glenn to come to do his 1300 shifter Mod/turn signal blinker etc. AND other 1300 & 1800 Mods
We can do exhausts / oil changes/final drive oil / brake & clutch bleeding / 1300 & 1800 front fork springs / de-smog / brakes etc.
I would like NOT to change any tires due to time constraints.

Lets see LOTS of NEW Guys. This is where you can see and learn from all of the talented people who work on there bikes.

I'm sure more ideas will come as we get closer to the date. Hope to see you all.

I've had a couple of "PM's" that the tech session is on the same date as the Skinny & Kerry's Annual Ride
As of this posting I have heard that this wasn't going to take place. If my information is incorrect I will move my date.

Mark, I think I can finally get the bike out of the dust and spider webs and finally finish fixing my bike.

I need to put on my new Accutronix forwards (yes, all the parts are in) and possibly replace the rear brake caliper with a new brake line. (I'll explain later and yes, I do have the parts along with the speed bleeders w/bags).

The house is almost done and I'll be moved in before the 21st so DAMMIT, I NEED MY BIKE!!!!!!

Hope to see ya there!

oh, and I wanna put on my Hick's A/F screw on the carb. (anyone have a d-tool?)

Um..., I THINK it's still a go, just doing some quick reorganizing due to some "unforeseen circumstances" (don't ask).

Jeremy gave me a call and we're going to hook up and put the finishing touches on the maps. I'm not sure of much other than that- I'm just serving as the "unofficial cartographer".

That's the last I heard as of yesterday...

Well tech session will be held but...... NOT on the same date as the Memorial ride. Out of respect for Skinny and Kerry I would never do that. So.......I'm waiting for conformation. If infact it is going to be held, then I'll change the date to the 28th of July.

Mark, I will make this date......However I have to leave at 3 for work....I have new progressive springs coming (Front and rear), Crome World Floarboards, Barrons airbox. and I will need an AMSOIL change before i leave for the Dells the following week. I figure I will have the floorboards, and rear shocks on before the Tech Session.

I just got a PM from Condolini regarding this. Now I'm up in Green Bay, but I may just make the trip down if a Packer fan is welcome to the Chicagoland area? I have a set of Progressive fork springs that I've been to chicken to try and install and could use the ground fix done. Any chance these can happen?

You're only allowed if you where a cheesehead hat as a helmut. Sure both can be done. I'm not sure if Mark has any "pookie" though for the ground fix.
