    Having a Technical Day in Northern Illinois

    Hey Folks,
    I live just south of Rockford, Illinois and Afan is riding to my house next Friday, May 24th. Then Saturday morning I am going to show him how to adjust his valves and maybe more. There will be some burgers on the grill. Love to have a gathering. We can do more than valves. I'll put aside that whole day. I have three extra beds and two lower acres that you could camp on overlooking a nice view. I am less than 20 minutes from the major chain motels in Rockford right on I-90 too. If it is raining that weekend then we are moving it to the next weekend, Friday the 31st. Hope to see you even if you just want to visit! If interested then PM me for the address.

    Guy

    That is way too cool. I hope you guys have a great time, get some instruction done, and do something productive.

    Sounds awesome! Too cool of you to do this. If I lived closer, I'd come by just to hang out!

    Yeah, I plan to get out to Idaho soon. I have two kids going to school this fall in Wrexburg. It would be nice to have more people but if we don't we will take care of Afan's bike and maybe do forks or something.

    Next to checking valves (and replacing coolant while there), probably flush the breaks. I'll probably bring the skid plate I bought loooong time ago but never installed.
    But, I'm pretty sure there would be enough time to take a look at couple other bikes - if anybody interested.

    Huge thanks to Guy and his generous offer!
    Instead million dollars, give me million miles!

    I'm thinking of a Pink Floyd song right now... Is anybody out there? Sure would be nice to have some fairly local NC'S roll in too even if you know how to work on your bike.
