Feeler - South 'Burbs Garage Night?

Hey guys and girls-

I mentioned this briefly at our ride yesterday, but I wanted to throw it out there again. I know some people don't have garages/space to work/stands/knowledge/etc. I would like to host a garage night where we can all take the time to do oil changes, chain cleaning/adjustment, parts installation, etc, etc. I have plenty of tools and a couple of sets of stands.

I was thinking this coming weekend or next, but I am pretty open until April 16th when the outage starts. Fri/Sat/Sun, day doesn't really matter. Make sure your bike is ready for summer!

Whatcha think?

I'm open for Saturday nights, since Fridays I work and Sundays is reserved for the girlfriend.
I do work Saturday but only until about 4 so it's no big deal.

Welp, this Friday night works, but we will be out of town this Saturday and part of Sunday. If that doesn't work for anyone, then we can do the next Saturday, 31st.

No way man. If you have time this week at all then come over and we'll shave it down. Takes ten minutes tops.

I have them on my track bike. I didn't do them though, Ohlins did. I would give Brad at Superbike Supply a call and see how much it costs these days, as he could put you in touch with them (they are right down the road from him).

OK, a few guys have expressed interest. I am putting it out for a vote:

3/30, next Friday

-OR-

3/31, next Saturday

Probably starting around 5ish. Cold drinks and some snacks, etc, to tide us over while we work.

Vote early and vote often!!

Either night is kosher. I don't have a preference.

So, I did something tonight that I maybe should have waited for garage night....nah. I put a Taylormade exhaust on my 1000RR. I was a little apprehensive about their quality control methods but had heard that they turned it around.

It looks and sounds great! Pics up later, I am down for the count. Mr. Paine, are you coming Saturday night?

We sure will. My buddy Kenny with an RC51 volunteered his 3 car garage for the next one.

The Joliet area has plenty of places to stay, right off of I-80 and I-55.
