Tools - if you are doing some work on your bike and you have a small kit you like to use and can bring along go ahead. I have at least 3 of everything, but you never know where they'll be when you need em. Otherwise I have everything needed to do all normal maintenance and farkle installations, even though the shop areas aren't the most elegant or organized, or lit for that matter.
Work scope - I don't expect to actually change buckets on valve checks unless someone is there that has done this before. I haven't and it isn't wise to start practicing with a huge audience with the patient on a time constraint. Also do not plan on digging into a slave cylinder type job unless some one comes prepared with all the parts and another person is there that has done this before. I have all the tools for this work though.
Food - brats and burgers with fixins and salads, soft drinks and water
Lift - Jack Homesly has offered his lift even though he can't make it. I am planning on picking it up a couple days before. That is a 140 mile round trip in a 1 ton flat bed truck. If someone is coming from the Charlotte area and can't ride for some reason and has a truck, let me know. Maybe you could swing by Jack's and pick up the lift. I know it's a stretch but just wanted to throw it out there.
Parts - got lot's of little things that are known to fail - Fuel QD's, o'rings, shift linkage balls, crush washers, bolts and screws, valve cover gasket, fuel filter clamps, etc NO VALVE BUCKETS.
Area rides - If you really don't want to stay around all day but just want to stop in for food and say hi - you'll find some great roads very nearby.
A loop around Lake James is nice - 1 mile from session
A cruise up NC181 is great - 5 miles from session
A Blueridge Parkway entrance is 15 miles up NC181 - 20 miles from session
Mt Mitchell - 50 miles
Grandfather Mtn and Linville viaduct area - 35 miles
If we get done early we can all go for a ride. Don't rush the work though.
OK. that's all for now.
