    A "K" bike... you mean one of those fangled 4 cylinder things? Well..... I guess if you promise to only bring half the engine it would be ok.

    I may have to do a swap and leave the K bike in MI and bring the Airhead back to show off the little girl.

    Sounds like a great idea.

    Thanks for the invite,

    I plan to do a same thing in the same time but my plan change due to work schedule.
    I can do most of what you asking for but i like to work on a K bikes.


    Valves and belt on a R bike is a piece of cake.

    Good luck on the event.

    ....y2k.

This is open to Airheads and Oilheads as I have one of each. I will be working on the Oilhead myself, but if anyone wants to work on the Airhead... COOL! It is a '76 R90/6 that is taken down to frame as I am in the process of converting it to a cafe racer, complete with a Ducati super-sport fairing.

    The Tech Stuff (I am NOT a mechanic but try to do all I can on my bike)
    - I need to do all of the "Every 12K mile" stuff to my '00 R1100RT as well as replace the alternator belt.
    - I have never done a valve adjustment myself so anyone with history on that would be great.
    - Haynes manual in one hand, tools in another... Let's go at it!

    For those who would like to work on their own bikes, I have 2 garage stalls, plus I will put up 2 - 10 x 10 tents in the driveway.

    I would like to get a heads up on those attending so that I can plan for enough food.

    Please respond here, PM me, or email me douglasrost@gmail.com

    Thanks everyone in advance, I hope this will be a lot of fun.
