    Wrenching Day?

    Okay so I've got a small pile of parts that need to go onto my Hawk somehow, and I'm a klutz extraordinaire.

    Based on my previous track (w)reckord I will eff things up if left to my own devices... so I'm throwing a BBQ/Wrench Day at Casa De La Thompson in CT this Spring. Everybody bring their bikes, and we'll work on whatever you've got and maybe you all can point me in the right direction with my shit while we're at it.

    I'm in Shelton, CT now.... that's south-western CT, an hour and a half from NYC. Who's down for a party?

    Post up with what weekend day would be good for you, so I can run a poll.

      sounds cool.

      If I'm not racing/ woking on Doc's bike/ getting married/ buying a house/ buying a new Tundra i'm in. If you can stand a CBR 929 rolling up the driveway. No street HAWK yet. Maybe Scott (SMF) and I could partner up for a nice Conn trip?

              I'll meet Scott in Arlington, MA (3 hour ride) then we go get Gino (how far is that?) and the 3 of us Ride to Dougs. Anyone wanna join us on the way?
              Yes and no race weekends. How's April 21-22 looking? Although I would be coming down with my trailer.

              I have a trackday the 24, then thursday testing, Friday Practice and Sat/Sun race weekend.

              Would be a busy bunch of days for me but it WOULD be EPIC!

              Or May 26-27 would be great cause it is a 4 day weekend for me. (Memorial day weekend)

                      Can I put in a request with Tony to have you instruct on April 24th?

                        that sounds cool. if possible try to avoid weekends immediately before a race weekend. as noted by gino, we typically use those working on the racebikes... of course that's _hopefully_ a lot less likely once the season begins *crosses fingers/knocks on wood*

                        btw, the lrrs schedule can be had here: http://www.lrrsracing.com/

                          Well,
                          I'm getting hitched Cinco de Mayo
                          And away to the May 21.
                          May 26-28 (Memorial Day) is probably the best for me.
                          Don't wait up for me. You probably want to be on the road by then.

                            CONGRATS, Gino! Welcome to the good life!

                            So, I guess the 5th isn't the best... it'd be cool if you could be there. Then again, I suppose we could all ride out to the ceremony and do burnouts in front of the church

                            What about the 12th or 13th, guys?

                              Sorry, I am not going to have anything to do with the church! But i would still welcome the burn out
