Meeting Recap--February 23, 2019

in Meeting Recaps

Eight riders (plus Presley) met this overcast, drizzly day. Dave received this month's "hero award" as he was the only one to brave the weather and come on two wheels.

The meeting opened with LHM's video that gave "the rest of the story" regarding David's encounter with Goliath.

We set March 9th for our March club ride with March 16th as back up in case of a rain cancellation on the 9th. The ride will be of intermediate length and include a stop at VanZantd's in Dial and lunch at TWO in Suches. A route map and additional details will follow as the ride date nears.

Larry has been working on specific destinations and a timeline for a 4 day three night ride currently scheduled for the first week of June. Larry will be e-mailing a chart to all TLCMC riders  that roughly shows the details of each day of the ride. He is soliciting feedback from everyone that may be interested in going on the ride, and specifically, which 4 days in that first week in June would best fit your work/vacation schedule.

We wound up the meeting viewing and discussing lessons that included: why Phillips screwdrivers are not the best for Japanese bikes; the best way to break-in a new motor, the variety of sidecar rigs here and there and a segment of a trip video the showed what can happen when a mix of experienced and newbie riders go off-roading together.

If you've got some time on a rainy day take a look at the whole video: ( you may have to bleep the Ural rider's language at times. Sorry)
