***POSTPONED***Western Mass 8th Annual Wrench Party - May 20th

****Date changed to May 20th****

This Weekend we will host the 8th annual Western Mass wrench party. At our house at 11:00AM-???


Where else can you get free mechanical work done?

Plenty of parking available.

We have:

Tools, Motorcycle Jacks, Hamburgs, Hot Dogs, Sausage, Cold Beverages Fine Cigars

We need:

People to Turn Wrenches. People to have things done to their bike. People to eat Hamburgs, Hot Dogs, Sausage and Drink Beverages. People to smoke Fine Cigars.

Let us know below if your coming, and, if you want work done on your bike, list it below.

If you can help someone with what they need done, let us know.

If you have expertise in a certain area, let us know.

If you have parts that need to be installed - PM us for an address and you can send it here in advance.

This is mostly about just getting together, having some food and beverage, and getting our bikes ready for a great 2017 riding season.

I know we have many new members in the North East - feel free to stop in and meet some other members of the forum, even if you don't need any work done on your bike, stop in for food and socializing.

Put me down!
I was thinking about learning about how to check and adjust my values. I believe I had it done when I first got the bike. I know they put back on the stock pipes and the original jets. So I believe it was done then. I also believe, I had it done one more time three years ago when they was trying to diagnosis a problem and want to cross it off the list of possibilities. Jay or someone here, is this something in your repertoire of knowledge? Last year she did sound fine for when I did ride her.

Keep your rubber on the road and your feet on the pegs and have a good ride.

Peace,
Bigbert

You've been to the cave, I'll take anything apart.

Whether we get it back together is another story....Lol

I would think we could get it done.

This is on my calendar! Woot!

And I have a project: Front tip-over bars for my CTX700. It's not the standard roll bar installation, for two reasons:

(1) The CTX has all that d*mned tupperware to take off.

(2) The installation instructions are in German! (The bars are made by Fehling.) Another time when we'll be sad that brother Moenko can't be with us.

Thanks so much for doing this, Jay and Michelle!!

Count Me In, and of course I'm always there to lend a hand with whatever I can manage to help with. If Jeff is going to be there he can install the speakers on my new ctx700. Other than that I don't think I have anything else to do. It'll be nice to see everyone again had a great time today at Michaels. So good to see everyone. Thanks Michelle and Jay for hosting once again, always have a great time see you all soon

Can't make it...the 6th is my anniversary, so I already have plans to celebrate how lucky my wife has been for the past 22 years.
