Jim,
Sounds like something out of Star Wars. Is that something to blast Toronto traffic?

Re: Tech Day April 24, 2010

Garry, thanks, great idea. I too would be interested in coolant change and/or valve adjustment. Coming from the Lindsay Lake Scugog area, unsure of the drive time,
but when would you be starting. Look forward to meeting.

Re: Tech Day April 24, 2010

I guess I forgot to mention timing.

Start = when you get here
End = when you leave

Hope that helps.

Larry, what are you riding? GPS says 146km - 1-1/2 hours

Remember, If you need any special tools let me know and We will see if anyone has them, otherwise you can bring your own.

If you are coming make sure that you tell me, my wife will make home made Chili for lunch and drinks, sorry, no beer/alcohol if you are riding, $5.00 per person.

Thanks
Garry
