Local mid-atlantic folks... Sunday I'm opening the garage doors here in North Delaware, catching up on some of the bike work I've been having to put off because of work and all the trips to upstate-PA, likely doing some straighten-up work on the garage and shed, and firing up the grill and fire pit. Opening doors at 10:00am, festivities close down... whenever. I'll have burgers and dogs for the grill, soft drinks, and we can cycle out what's in the beer fridge - we were given a beer club membership as a gift, and we have much and varied stock of stuff we just haven't had time to consume. :)

My agenda:
  • replace the OEM tires and bolt some things onto a VFR for Joe Popp in preparation for a trip to the Dragon in a couple weeks.
  • replace the turn signals and mirrors on Liz's ZRX
  • wire up a fuse block / terminal block in the VStrom and get the accessories properly relayed in rather than full time direct to battery.
  • whatever general maintenance is due on whatever's in the garage
  • *MAYBE* (though increasingly unlikely due to time constraints) do a full fork rebuild on a Bonneville, including new springs and Racetech valves


PM for details on location, etc.

"MidAtlantic Car Hole of Apathy"

That's great.

Sounds like place of work, in short, we call it the tirefire.  But it's more traditional name is

Be to far south. I'll be arriving in Townsend Tn. Sunday.

I also intend to *finally* finish the Rebel by then. I'm pissed at myself that I've had-to/chosen-to put off so much stuff the past couple of months, mostly because of this job. (sigh)

Not a problem. No worries.
