    ok, here is the formal announcement --

    CNYCC#10 is now scheduled for June 10, 2017.

    More specifics will be posted later.

    People have requested the following:

    - let's see inside a carburetor
    - how about a Colortune demonstration

    Just a few weeks away, now! Please start confirming attendance with me via private conversations, so I can forward information to you. Also, start getting list together of things you need done, or skills that you have to help, or just attend to learn :)

    Smeagl got his bike back together just in time to ride up today… CrazyGnat right beside him ....Just in time for lunch--- lol

    'Dogs and 'burgers on the grill along with chips, soda, coffee, watermelon, etc.... and Nuch's awesome marinated skirt steaks rounded out the meal

    Smeagl working on getting his bike ready to check-- there's something going on inside that he will need to delve into deeper when he gets home, but hey-- it's running... last time he was here it hadn't run in over 12 yrs...

    Dan learned how to install rear brake shoes

    After packing things up, we went for a 35 mi ride.

    When we got back, it was time for supper.

    A couple stayed to camp the night and head out tomorrow morning...

    What was accomplished?
    3 bikes synced and tuned
    1 plug replaced
    1 set of new LED Signals and taillight installed
    1 rear drum opened and serviced
    1 oil & filter change
    1 bike determined to have other issues
    1 set of new handgrips installed

    Too bad more people weren't able to attend--- quite a few had last-minute things unfortunately come up. But the half dozen or so that we're here had a great time of meeting old friends, meeting new friends, and working on our favorite bikes.

    Nuch silkscreened some awesome XJ shirts for us, he may make them available for others.....watch for his posts----

    Extra special thanks goes out to Len Chacal of XJ4Ever for his generous contributions for door-prizes. After our ride three pairs of outer chrome carb hats and one pair of inner natural metal carb hats were awarded.

    Also, thanks go out to Excell Motorsports for key rings for everyone, and Gates-Cole Insurance company for sidestand plates for everyone.

    Crawling in to bed now 11:45pm after a perfect sunny day.

    Sunday AM---

    Jeff, a.k.a. the crazy gnat, and smeagl camped overnight,packed up first thing this morning and after some coffee and donuts are heading on their way home, too.

    Everyone is safely home except Smeagl...but he's taking a long way and visiting family on the way... he just headed out for the last leg of the trip.

    Update: smeagol has checked in, everyone is home. Now i can finish closing out the CNYCC#10

    :)
