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 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 and/or if you want to see all the comments and the other photos.

June 16, 2007    A mini-tech day

April 6, 2008     A big turnout, over 30 bikes

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

April 24, 2010     Another smaller turnout since the weather was supposed to be bad

May 8, 2010     Large turnout, better weather

September 18th and 19th, 2010, a tech weekend     Over 30 people for both days

May 12, 2012      Smaller turnout but a great day

September 15, 2012      Lots of people, lots of bikes, total success, no drama.  Yay!

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.
