Personally, I'm not offended by beer and actually have some on tap but I also live here and won't be riding or driving home afterward.

Anyway....since it's generally agreed that it is not a good idea to drink and then ride and because it's not nice to drink in front of others I hadn't planned on drinking during these events.

As far as showing up empty handed. Don't worry about it. I've been extremely blessed and am happy to give back a bit.

If you really want to bring something that is great too but we could probably use shop supplies or something to snack on / throw on the grill as much or more than the beer..

I never allow alcohol while working on cars and bikes.
Too dangerous.

Dave ... you might call your insurance agent and ask for a liability rider on your homeowner's policy in case someone gets hurt or something gets broken or misappropriated. It's not much.

So...I'm currently not expecting anyone tonight as definite but there are a couple of maybes. If you do show, knock on the garage door of the rear garage. House is a corner lot, the garage door of the house and both garage doors from the shop face the street on Townlake Circle. Knock on the either of the single doors of the shop and I'll open up.

Just mentioning as I'll probably have the doors shut since it's cold outside.

If you are like me, folks will have to knock hard as the music might make it hard to hear the knocking... :-P

This really is a great idea but the weather is not cooperating, when it gets a bit warmer I would love to come along to meet a few people, I do all my own servicing and am willing to help out anyone needing assistance in the north Dallas area, have a good workshop and tools.

First post updated with address and a few more specifics. Weather looks a bit better this month and I know a few will be able to come this month.

See you Wednesday.

I’d like to attend this Wednesday. I need to work on the brakes on my V-Strom. I got new pads & new brake oil. Anything else I might need? Is there any shop supplies I could bring?
I have brake job tools and supplies but brake cleaner, carb cleaner and paper shop towels are always useful if you want to bring one of those items.

I picked up some hot dogs, hot Italian sausage and some Hatch Green Chile sausage that I'll likely throw on the grill.

Probably throw some ranch style beans on the stove as well.

Feel free to eat one or two. You might want to bring some chips or soft drinks or dessert items if you want them as I don't have much of those.

Should be fun.

Got some stale gas I pulled out of a rusty tank you can have. I hear those ATs will run on just about anything...

House isn't hard to find but just be aware that it's a corner lot. The front of the house, and the address is on Canalview but the garage opens to Townlake Circle. Just pull in the driveway that isn't part of the house as the edition is the garage we'll be working out of. You'll understand when you get there.
