Had a nice time just hanging out but boy was it chilly on the ride down as I was on my bare bones SR, the tips of my fingers were numb by the time I arrived. Meet a gentleman (who also happens to be named Jeff, so you just Know he's a very cultured individual! :lol: ) with a very nice Leica rangefinder style mirrorless camera and we had a nice long chat about cameras, riding and such and it seems we share a number of interests and enjoy similar types of road trips. Food was good as always and always nice to run into others I don't often get a chance to chat with.
Only down side is that Jim Still does not have any SR400 specific door prizes, so what's up with that??? :shock:

It is true we seem to share a lot in common among riders. Lots of us like to take photos, few are as good as you are.

Excellent tech day, Jim. Well done!

It was a large crowd, with many fluid and tire changes, adjustment & installs going on simultaneously and enough know-how in the group that any and all questions were quickly answered. A great service to the club.

She started to look for that rum right after my Tech Day and was hoping you would like it. Cheers.
