I'm planning to attend for the social aspect as well as to help others since the only thing I need to do on my bike is valve check, which apparently is outside the scope of a wrench session.  >:(

Anyone doing wheel bearings or anything like that? I have a blind bearing puller if anyone needs it.

I gotta do wheel bearings on my superhawk sometime.  I may have to borrow that from you.   :beerchug:

Oh...and I'll have some beer too.  don't worry about drinking too much.  if you can't drive, I'll have someone drive you home and keep the C14 for you.   >:D

I understand Pope is planning a class on advanced riding techniques.   :nananana:

Oh yes! There's more than one way to remove a saddle bag from a C-10 and being able to do so from another bike while both are moving is a skillset that only a few have mastered.

Dave, does this mean that you're volunteering your C-10 (and saddle bag) for this demonstration?  :D :nananana: :rotflmao:

Also...... (to all that are participating) ....
What are you wanting to do to your bike? Brake pads / brake fluid flush / fork oil change / electrical wiring of a new accessory.... etc.
Are there any special tools needed and if so, are you bring them?
If you are bring special tools, what are they?

Dave, what (in general shop tool wise) maintenance task do you already have tools for?

Not as much as I would like these days.  I do have my tire changer if someone needed to handle that.

I've got containers for used oil and fluids as needed, so no worries for fluid changes.  I have a hose for brake/clutch bleeding.  Having moved I've lost track of a few things.  I think I have a feeler gauge, but might want to bring your own.

I've got a good assortment of metric tools for general purpose use.

For me, I've got an oil leak around the oil pressure sensor to troubleshoot.  Will change oil if I can get that straightened out.

I have some electrical repair stuff too, in case you find a need for something you don't have.

We had a good session today. It was mostly filled with great fellowship (mostly humerus) and only two bikes being wrenched on (read this as one person working and four others supervising, yes, supervising [wink, wink]).

Sammie left about 230.  wasn't sure if he'd make it past his place and all the way to the beach or not.  :)

Yea the OLD MAN from SC had to go up to NC and show those young BOYS how to wrench on a C-14.  :-[ :-\ :beerchug: :)
No Dave I didn't make it to the beach, just to tired to add another hour to the ride. :truce:
Would like to thank Dave's wife for the great burgers and dogs.  :great: Good time had by all. Those who missed it just don't realize what you are missing when you don't attain some of the COG events. Try it you will like it.  :))

I hope a valve check isn't out of scope because I need to check mine, and am having a wrenching session next month in Cary. :-)

Hope y'all had fun!

Hey Sammie!!! How did the new horn do? Any issues with it and the front fender?


Would like to thank Dave's wife for the great burgers and dogs.  :great:

Yes, Denise did a awesome job.  :great:

Yes there was a miner touch. A firm push back on the horn and I was able to bend the bracket enough to correct the problem.  :great:       What did surprise me is that the wires look like the would contact 1st yet they did not touch.                                                                             The good thing about the location on the top of the fender  is that no matter how you try you can't see the small scratch.  :)
Now I know when I push the horn button other drivers will hear it.  :beerchug:
