TECH SESSION - April 8

TECH DAY CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN

FEEDBACK NEEDED DUE TO RAIN FORECAST

Should we reschedule this event given significant rain is forecast?

Members have suggested we have an event where basic motorcycle preparation / maintenance is discussed. The Board thinks that is a good idea so we are. It will be on April 8, 2017, starting at about 10 am. It will be in Rancho Murieta. If you decide to participate, go Murieta Drive toward the airport in Rancho Murieta. Look for Hanger F, then go to No. 19.

This event is intended to be instructional, not a chance where one can get free maintenance or use of shop tools for your own work.

Curricula currently will include use of a GS911, doing an emergency tire plug, and an oil change on a boxer (probably on a GS because access is easier). We are considering a value clearance check session on a boxer (again probably on a GS, maybe an RT, because access is easier).

If you have a suggestion, please send me a personal message.

Thanks Ernesto,

To those that wish to actually plug a tire at the tech session, you should bring YOUR repair kit. Make sure you have a good tube of glue as they do dry up! DAMHIK! This will be a good thing to learn especially if you've been luck enough to never have had to make a roadside repair. Eventually YOU WILL and it sucks to go through a learning curve on the road. It amuses me when folks say, "I'll call my tow service". Yeah, try that in the middle of Ebbets Pass.
I will have an inflated tire on a wheel to actually puncture and repair. we will then inflate after the repair to check for success! See ya there!
