More awesome door prizes from www.cyclenutz.com!

9 USB Powerlet plugs, and 2 FZ1 Fuzeblocks! I have used these many times, and really like the built in relays. They work for virtually any bike!

Hey Jim, If you need a R1200GSA to demonstrate the installation of all these door prizes I guess I could sacrifice and let my bike be that bike. :-)

@LAFS is going to attend the tech day, and bring his tools. He is our resident expert on Wethead Cam Timing. We plan to have a demonstration on the process, and complete the process on anyone's bike who would like. This is a great addition to the tech day. If you wish to have this done to your Wethead, please post it here!

Photos and data on the process here: https://www.snafu.org/pics/r1200gsw/201 ... am-timing/

Thanks Lee! :thumb

Hey Jim,

Can I get on the docket for some TLC for Gertrude? Looks like by the time of your tech day I probably should put on a new pair of brake pads on the front. And while I am at it might as well replace the rear pads too. If I can get on the docket, can you tell me if what I need to bring other than the brake pads?

Hi David,

Just bring the pads, we got you covered for the rest.

Thanks,

Spent several hours cleaning the garage, and the floor, in anticipation of my annual tech day. Damn lot of work!

Damn lot of work to just make it pretty.

Also went to Costco to pick up food supplies for the tech day, burgers and dogs, Chili, chips, water and soda!
