    Tech day in East Texas

    Sure sounds like a good idea to me.
    I am willing to host it and will have a lift by next week.
    Sometime in September is good, weather-wise.

    OK, this seems like genuine interest. I'm gonna have to get more organized. I can fit about 5 bikes inside my garage and shop, including 1 on the lift.
    The next thing is some one who knows more about airheads than I(won't be hard to find) and is willing to attend. I'll check around and keep you all posted.

    I might be able to make it. A bit of a ride from DFW but I would consider it.

    Jeff, I think that between the lot of us we probably know a bunch of good stuff.

    OK, the date is Saturday, Sept. 29th.
    The location is 278 County Rd. 2152
    Nacogdoches, TX starting when I finish my morning coffee and ending whenever we feel like it..

    For directions, Google maps will show the old iteration of the address, which is
    274 Deer Creek Drive(and that's what you have to enter). The street is posted as both 2152 and Deer Creek Drive.
    Google maps also does not show a new street(Wellington Pointe) which makes my street the fourth one on the right off CR 215, not the third, as shown. If you get lost, call me at 936 569 8343.
    Sorry for the confusion, blame the county commission!
    My house is on the left about halfway down the street.

    We'll do fluid changes, tune ups, maybe spline lubes and whatever else somebody thinks will fit in the day. I have a lift and room for about 2 or 3 other bikes to be worked on inside. Otherwise, if the weather's good, we can do some stuff outside.
    I have most of the usual tools, including an exhaust nut wrench, but if you need a special one, ask me about it.

    Food(burgers and/or pizza) and drink will be available, as will some camping space. The yard is about 9/10s of an acre and has tent space.

    Dang it. I just purchase a 1976 R90/6 with a Dnepyr side car and I would love to come but I'm signed up for a side car training class in Louisville, KY that weekend. Barry Longview,TX

    Coordinates

    These should put you in my driveway, or at least close enough to see the other bikes.
    31 deg, 39' 31 North
    94 deg, 36' 05 West

    I think I'll add brats to the menu.

    This post is just by way of a reminder, and to get the thread up top again for anyone interested who missed it earlier.
    I'll have a couple signs out on Appleby Sand Rd(FM2609 and County Rd. 215.
    The weather looks good for Saturday, and I have decided to also grill brats for lunch and whatever. Various beverages also available.
    At least one person is going to camp. More won't hurt.

    I'm still on the fence. We'll just have to see how my week shakes out.

    You guys won't mind if I ride a Hexhead though, right? My airhead is hors d'combat right now.

    You are definitely welcome.
    I would like to have a chance to sit on a hex head, fondle the controls, make vrooom noises, etc.
    To date no one else will let me get near one.
