SgtMarty KLR650 Tech Days
Not all the Tech Day reports are here (missing some of the earlier ones), and some have no photos, but these are most of the post-Tech Day reports that I made at KLR650.net and ones that I have now authored here. I did not import the comments and photos from other people on the forums, since those weren't my original content. There is a link at the bottom of most reports to the entire original forum threads on KLR650.net and/or ADVrider.com if you want to see all the comments and the other photos.

October 7, 2007 A small turnout, bad weather
April 6, 2008 A big turnout, over 30 bikes

(I was riding around South America a lot in 2009, so no tech days)

May 11, 2013 Light turnout but lots of good work got done
September 14, 2013 Good turnout, everything went well. A rainy ride home for many.
May 3, 2014 LOTS of bikes got worked on, and a perfect day for it.
September 6, 2014 The weather was kinder than was predicted, and everything got done.
May 2, 2015 Near perfect weather despite a brief sprinkle
September 19, 2015 A great day; perfect weather, perfect people, (nearly) perfect work. Yay!
May 14, 2016 Started out a bit bleary, but a typical turnout, lots of good food, lots of work got done.
September 10, 2016 Great weather, fewer attendees but lots of bikes worked on. One broken doohickey.
May 20, 2017 Snow on the ground in the morning, mostly gone in the afternoon. Many stayed away, but about a dozen people showed up and some bikes got worked on. Never had a snowmobile in my driveway before. Can't say that anymore.
This site was poorly designed and created by me. Nope, no one else to blame.
