North Ga. Tech Day

Hey Ya'll,

Did anything ever happen with this Ga Tech Day? I see a thread started in may '08 about doing one.
I would be glad to host a tech day here at my shop in Jasper, Ga.
We are a very well equipped workshop with two certified, experienced mechanics. I can arrange to have them on hand for technical assistance. (presuming this would happen on a saturday, we're closed sat/sun)
We can do hickies, or whatever. We could demo a fork service.....I am open to ideas.


What I can offer is: hospitality, a nice facility, and my crew for support and assistance. Also, I would gladly offer a short talk on chassis awareness.

There is some great riding around here.
Maybe we can all go for a group ride when we're finished, or the next day. We're located in the foothills of the smokies. 60 miles due north of Atlanta. 50 minutes of great backroads (some gravel) to get to the cohutta wilderness (for instance). Fall leaf change isn't too far out.

I have never been to a tech day, (but I have stayed at a holiday inn express) I would like some help from someone who has, preferably someone who has hosted.


Anyone interested?

Well lets see if we can get some interest. I'll make the run from here if I can get away. I just need to know a few weeks in advance.

No capt, I can't make the TdPIII, too bad to, I would love to, but I have to be at the WERA national round at Barber Motorsports Park for the National Endurance series. I work for the team that is leading the middle weight superbike class in points. But, I digress.
Keep your head down with the storms blowin' thru.
Have fun with the family, have fun at TdPIII and we'll hook up at a later date.

North Ga. Tech Day

jwp6114,
Yep, you missed it. We did a doo, then rode about 200 miles in 5 hours, had a nice lunch on the way.
There were six klrs, each one different, all under good and experienced riders, we didn't need to wait on anyone and kept a brisk pace thru twisty backroads with about 50 miles of gravel thrown in for fun.
I hope everyone else enjoyed themselves as much as I did.

But, as far as the next one, there is a tech day in Calhoun, Ga in nov

Never been to a tech day before, how does it work, do i need to bring my own parts and tools? when in November is the next one? i would like to come up for the next one just for the ride if nothing else. Im not the most experienced off road rider but i hang with most on road. Where there anything other than klr's out there, i have a co-worker with a Honda 650L that might like to come. Just need a little advanced notice on when it is. are there mostly older guys, or some younger guys too? im 24, my boss with the 650L is older, mid 50's i think.
