    Weather looks great, now all I have to do is make it home from Houston, TX by 10AM.

    Pics!

    Thanks Doug for hosting and arranging the fantastic weather.
    Great day, great house!

    Here are some pics:


    Arrived and Doug's bike is already in pieces.


    Nice area to work although Doug was the only one working!


    Doug's project bike upstairs in his shop. Did I mention his shop? What a shop!




    Project bike engine on the stand in the garage. Even the engine stand was cool.


    Ben let his Dad (Mike) give him a ride down to the Tech Day.


    Ben's footpeg's.




    Fred grilling up duck wrapped in bacon with Dave supervising. Dave's son shot the duck(s). Tasty!






    Did I mention the bratwurst?


    Did I mention the brisket?! We might not have wrenched a whole lot but boy, did we eat good!


    Kevin's bike.




    Doug going for TDC with Tim in background spinning it.


    Some of the attendees: Tim, our host Doug, Fred the grill master and Tim the pilot.

    Thanks again Doug, it was a blast!

    Thank you Thank you

    Thanks to everyone who took time out their day to stop by. I had a lot of fun, learned several new tricks, and met some great people. (Even though somebody showed up in a cage! )

    Hopefully we can do it again in the spring, and finish it off with a nice ride.

    Stay tuned for more info......
