Party at my house 9/23

Recommended Posts

jacobhawkins    228

Hey everybody, some OR  folks are coming to Columbus for the AIMExpo and Katie and I are opening up our place as a spot to hang after the show this coming Saturday.  If you're on OR, you're likely not a dick, so come on over even if you're not going to the show.  More the merrier.  We have 2 acres about 10 minutes from the convention center, space for plenty of bikes/cars, a big fire pit, grill, motorcycle garage with a beer fridge.

2 acres, so there is plenty of space to camp or a cheap Uber ride to a hotel.  Neighbors are very cool, they are more into hot rods, so no worries about noise late at night.

If you post up if you'll be coming over, I'll make sure to get some beer that doesn't suck and some stuff to throw on the grill.

6ish to get things going?

My house is here.  We just got it, so below are some pics when it was a little more of disaster, but you get the idea.

Who ever is not going to aim expo should just ride in AM and crash the party in evening :)

I may be in for this. Might be a good time to test my camping gear coming in tomorrow.

The driveway is easy to miss, it comes up fast right over the hill. Jacob and Katie (though from what Jacob said, mostly Katie) found a great spot right in the middle of Columbus. You'd never know you weren't out in the country looking around in their back yard.

I may drop in to say hey. I'll be at IRETS and hope to take advantage of the free admission to the expo.

Very nice of you Jacob.  If my back wasn't agonizing me again I'd be down but it is so I won't.

Did you go on that long ride last weekend?  Sore from that?

I'll be around my house in the morning and afternoon if you want to stop by to say hey on your way.

Hey, if you're out and about and want to stop over, I still have those extra side cases for an FJR.  Yours if you want them.

I am looking at "logistics" at home to see if I can make this happen. Not for the fjr cases just to meet and greet you guys for being good people :) More than likely I won't be able to make it since it gets dark so fast and I have to be back home Saturday itself :(

So my plan is to leave Saturday morning from Toledo and arrive at Iron Pony.  Do the Iron Pony/SubD Meetup thing to AimExpo.  Check out AimExpo and then after is completely open.  Not sure if I plan to stay the night and go back on Sunday or ride back Saturday.  Either way I'll be coming down from Toledo with about 7 others so not sure what our afterward plan is.  I'll let you know more as I know more

I'm still trying to decide what I wanna do Saturday. I got all my new camping gear packed ready for a test, just not sure what my Sunday plans are right now.

Jacob

odd request. 

My tire changer is not available (bolted to floor of friends house who is away for a few weeks)

you happen to have this ability in your garage?

if so could I haul a pair of tires down on the back of the DR and swap them there?

bike has ancient shitty conti road tires about gone. Putting on 50/50 knobbies. With tubes. Can bring spare tubes in case

sorry if imposing

on better news, luggage racks fit perfectly

Tires have been changed there.  @what has some tools, I have some tools.  If he's coming over, I think he's planning on it, we could get new rubber on there.

Do you have any kind of stand the bike could be supported on for wheel removal?

Bike has no centerstand.

You have spools?  Been thinking of getting another stand for the Ducati anyway and that doesn't have spools.  I'll check the pin size for the front.  Or we can put it on the milk crate I use for my xr if we can't make my front stand work.

You welcome to stop by my place tomorrow morning too @Danimal to change tires. I don't have stands but we can hang it from the rafters that's what I did with a friends Daytona . I have a no-mar changer now.
