Folsom (CA) tech day planning

Trying to gauge interest in a tech day in Folsom (Yeah, where the prison is). I'm tied up the first week in April with weekends before and after but pretty much any other Sunday in the next few months.

I've got plenty of off street parking for bikes and a three car garage. Tool selection is limited as are my mechanical abilities but generally somebody that knows what they're doing shows up to save me from myself.

Let's get the thread going to determine what we need and when we need it.

Soda's, water, doughnuts are on me and we can take up a collection for Pizzas or whatever later.

Afternoon road ride a possibility as well.

I definately could do a Folsom Tech Day... I wouldn't even need to hit any interstates to get there!

Anyway, be sure to post this in the other forums to get a good turn out.

I would be up for a Tech Day in Folsom. I keep hearing about how nice it is up there. I was so bummed to have missed the Morgan Hill day.

My KLR should be running and broke in by then. I'm in.

Aztec gets a free Fork Oil Level Siphon tool for being a host.

Are you going to advertise it on other forums?

Not to dredge up anything ugly or already posted Tomato but what went south on your bike?


Looking at the 21st or 28th, whichever one gets the most takers.

Long story short. Bent the intake valves in the garage. Decided to go 685 while the head was off. Recieved the parts from Schnitz Racing yesterday. Thanks a ton (or at least 36 cc's) Cary. Waiting on some parts from EagleMike. Waiting on a drive chain from Matt. Reading about the reinstall process. Drool keeps getting on the pages.

Either day is good for me. I don't have a life

April looks like it is shaping up for me. By then I hope to have the seals on the fork replaced and new tires.
Had surgery on my arm two weeks ago, should be good to ride by then.
