    Exclamation Wrenchfest!

    I'll be hosting another wrenchfest at my place on Saturday, March 6th. The first Elite Trackday is the March 20th, and the weather will be warming up soon, so if you want to give your bike a good "turn your head and cough", this is the time. If the weather is bad that day, we will move it to the next day.

    On the list of to do's...
    -Oil & filter changes
    -Coolant changes
    -Tire changes & balancing
    -Brake pads/rotors & fluid changes
    -Basic chain maintenance (if you need to change your chain & sprokets let me know ahead of time so I can round up a chain breaker)
    -Bike wash (Richie to line up the talent )

    I'll also have some hotdogs, chips and sodas. Donations to offset costs appreciated.

    We'll start about 10am and the shop will be open all day.

    A couple if notes...
    You are responsible for the maintenance on your bike.
    I do have internet access on the computer in the garage so if you need to search the net for info, torgue specs, etc. we can do that.
    I will provide as much help as possible, but I'm not a professional mechanic.
    I have all of the tools you need to do 'routine' maintenance. If there are any tools that are specific to your bike, you'll need to bring them.
    Send me a PM or e-mail ahead of time and I can check to see if I have what you need.
    I will take care of your used oil, filters, etc. But you will need to haul off your old tires, or come back and get them later.
    I have front and rear stands...the front does not have the triple tree adapter so if you need one let me know so I can get one ahead of time.

    So is this still on? I could use an oil change, probably a chain adjustment as well.

    Well, I was begining to think I would cancel it since not many people seem to be interested.

    Yep, it's still on. A head count would be good.
    I think so far its,

    Oh..... I thought, being it was Richie, he was asking if women of questionable repute (had to four words for the orginal one I wrote) were going to be there.

    As promised...here are the pix.


    Couldn't resist this picture...anybody see anything odd?



    Dave installing his brush guard.








    We got a lot done on Kevin's bike. Tires, brakes, oil & filter...Dave's bike got a bath and some new swingarm spools.
    We also tried a little homebrew. Good times...

    I bought the bike at a Central Texas Harley. It's the only Key Ring they had...anybody have a Honda keyring they could spot me? LOL. I'll bet Dave has one he has every other part for my bike:-)
