I'll have my tires tomorrow, but I won't know about my weekend availability until Thursday so as of right now let's tentatively plan on next Monday night. If that doesn't work for everyone you can always try to coordinate with AlmightyS as he lives nearby and definitely knows how to use it as well. Just in terms of when I can get there Monday we'll run out of daylight before we can knock out 6 tires anyway.


I'm good with Monday. Since I'll be on this side of town I'll meet ya there. Just let me know when you head out.

My tires arrived today, so it looks like I'll get it off the motorcycle this weekend and either get it to Ricks or meet on Monday with you guys. My only question is wheel weights. Provide our own? Or are they available. If they're available, are black weights an option?

I now know my weekend schedule. I'm planning on being at the tire machine SUNDAY @ 10AM so everyone can plan accordingly. We have wheel weights, but they are silver so if you want black you'll need to provide them.

Sunday may work. I'll have to see how far I get. It's my weekend to get the trailer bearings done, check lights, tires etc and get the wheels off of the motorcycle and track down black wheel weights.

Obviously don't let the weight color hold you back because you can just swap them out later. Hope to see you there.

True! Just cover them with black duct tape and you are all good!

Not looking good for me to come tomorrow. Didn't get half of the stuff I wanted to get done, done. Have fun tomorrow.

I made some major headway yesterday on maintenance on the motorcycle. But most importantly, I managed to get the rear tire off, taken down the Natedog last night for a dismount and mount, and back on the bike before 7 o'clock. IMG_6226.jpg

Took the motorcycle out for a quick shake down, and everything feels great.
