My Nomar isn't exactly portable. I'm sure jwilly or MrLumberg will be glad to hand you some tire irons if you need 'em.

I don't go to Tech Days much...do people change tires at Tech Days? Or do they do valve checks, fork oil changes, and feeling the pumpkin up and down...

This is true but it's full of "still doing finishing touches to my house projects".

Heck I just sorta finished my driveway a few months ago.
You also have homemade chilly and liquor...

In the past, we have done a tire or two at tech days....... PITA to drag along the tire changer...... you spend quite a bit of time for something routine..... tars likely should be done on yer own??

Never been to a tech day. Thought you guys did tires at them. No biggee, I am not in need anyway. At the BMW F.A.R.T. in Sept., a guy brought a lift and tire changer. Set up in parking lot and did tech sessions. It was pretty cool really.
Looks like May 14-15 is the weekend. Checked with ElToroJoe, he is ok with that date.
I spent most of my money on guns, motorcycles, women, and whiskey. The rest I just wasted!

I change a lot of tires but i'm old school and spoon them on/off. Tire changers are for sissys.. (Like Wheaton)

If you have never been to a tech day, It's basically pull a bike in the shop, pick up and few tools and start drinking and bullshitting. Wake up the next morning in what appears to be a homeless shelter.

So in other words, I will join in.

Be especially careful if TimDOG and Deagle are there. They have some weird 'thing' aboot earplugs.

Maybe it's a Michigan thing? I dunno.
