Spring Tune-up Appalachian Riding Tour (START) Sparta, NC April 24-28

About the "going" feature.

 

1) This is a test only and is not and should not be considered a substitute for indicating you're either attending or canceling here in the thread, as this has been and will continue to be the preferred and official way to communicate you current attending status. 

 

 

2) For this test, the best and quickest way to find the "going" button, is to select "START" from the upcoming events on the left RIGHT side of the main page.

I'ma gonna say this.  I'll try to make this event, not likely I'll be staying in Sparta since I live roughly an hour away, I'd ride up each day, which would be no different than riding to work (just different direction).  If'n anyone runs into issues, I have a couple of trucks, a trailer, straps and I know how to use all of them.  I've got plenty of storage space if a bike gets too broke and it can be held for a while.  I have some tools that can do many repairs.  So the offer is there if'n anyone needs it.

Great great! Makes perfect sense. Others have done the same.

Speaking of tools, I was asked if anyone would have a tire changer in Sparta. Is that an option?

I've got the spoons to change both tires and a balancer (front tire only).  As long as the old and new tire are warm, it's 10-15 minutes,....cold tires, .......well, that's tool throwing time.

Richard, Thanks. It never hurts to have options for the unexpected tire issue.

Hello Indy Dave and other distinguished members.  Just wondering if this new member is welcome on this ride?  I really enjoyed and learned a lot on the FART ride 2018.  Maybe I can get Scott to go with me.

Hi Phil - We enjoyed having you! You're welcome to join us, of course! If Scott (aka 6th gear) does come along, go easy on him this time so his Triumph will make it home in one piece! :16:  :3:  Just let us know when you plan to arrive. We will announce the meal details about 6 weeks out and Kinsely will have route info posted about a month before the event. Hope you can make it, Phil!

Foot - Thanks for pointing that out. My notes have you done for Wed, so why I didn't get the (now fixed) slide correct is the 18th wonder of the world. :ohboy::4617:
