Sign up reminder for 2012 CJD Tech – Rider Workshop Weekend

This weekend we will be putting on the finishing touches for the event.   Food and activities.     Last weekend we sent out emails to everyone that was on the list requesting feed back if you are still planning to attend.

If you have not sent any thing back you will be considered scratched from food count and Riderwork shop to allow others to take part.   Roll-ins are welcome to stop by, just be warned we might not have food for you then.

I want to make sure everyone has the chance to attend and get the most out of this if they want to.  If you did not recieve an email update and thought you should have please send us an email with this info:

    Hello! You say roll ins are welcomed….cant afford anytime off work but would like to stop in sat or sunday. I am a customer, my friend & I are ktm enthusiasts (adv 690se)& we live right here in milwaukee,not interested in any free food or riding,just some tech advice is always good. Is there a better time than others to stop in?
    Thanks again

    • Hi Aj,

      No problem, I understand, and even if you wanted to stop out any of the nights or meet us at the Bike nights that would be just fine.

      We run a pretty loose ship around here, but try our best to keep it moving well. So you never know what might be going on at any moment.

      The schedule for Sat is the Rider Workshop. Anyone taking part needs to be ready to go with gear on at 8am. (It will be a Full Day) Even if you’re pro, please get here and follow along with the basics and understand, everyone has to start somewhere. I’m sure you’ll get something out of it, no matter how good you are. If anything, it’s a very good warm up for the afternoon and if Joey sees that you’re sleeping… I’m sure he can give you something special to work on.

      If you show up later as a “Roll In” and no one is up by the house, we are in the woods. Follow your ear, I’m sure you’ll find us. Come out and watch the action. 🙂 We’ll be back in around 11 for lunch then back out.

      Sun is Morning riding only, 9am – Noon.

      BTW, Don’t expect to get me on my cell phone or email during this event, but you can try. It will be in the house so I can focus on the riders and projects going on. Sorry.
      Email Katie during this time if info is needed during the weekend.

      See you soon.

  2. I am new to an adventure bike. I would love to see some Maintenance demonstrations. Roll ups welcome for the valve adjustments and oil change demo? Or should I send a reservation email?

    • Hi Rick- please send a reservation email. We are firming up plans, but please send the email and we’ll see if we have some space for you.
