Melb Wed 1st spanner night

Discussion in 'VIC' at netrider.net.au started by port80, Mar 30, 2009.

  1. I'll be holding a spanner night at my house in Tarneit / Hoppers Crossing this Wednesday night the 1st. We'll be covering a few basic tasks like oil / filters / chains / brakes and tyres.

    PM me for the address and any work you need carried out. For all the regulars, please PM me to let me know how many people to expect.

  2. just an idea -
    im unable to make this, would have liked to learn those things, maybe set a camera up? could than upload so we would have a few video tutorials? i think video would be easier than taking photos as you than have to write and explain each one, whereas a video is pretty self explanatory?
    just a thought as it would be really helpful for those like myself, wanting to make it but unable.
    cheers

  3. Fair enough request - please do me a favor and search youtube to see if there's anything decent already uploaded. If not then I can record it.

    I'm planning on running another night like this late next month.

  4. Cant' make this one...

    Video is a good idea, though you'd need a day to film it all properly and get good viewing angles maybe we should setup a "mighty car mods" style of tute-video... and we'll need a couple of corney video presenters :LOL:

  11. Good to hear the bikes running better Brij. Now you know the tricks of the fairing, the next change will take half an hour.... although it may have also taken longer last night due to the shear amount of crap that we were all talking.

    Burninator, I only posted this up last minute. Keep your eye out in the vic events area.

    DarkHorse, sorry Mon - Tues are two nights it won't be for me personally. The next event will be a spanner day, possibly a Saturday after Easter.

    Thankfully we didn't record this event. As it was we were lucky there were no charges of sexual harassment... yet.

    Paul, nice to meet you and good to have an interesting chat. Keep an eye out for the spanner day and we can take care of the oil in that spiffy cat of yours.

    Sorry that you had to go home with dirty pants Dan, but surely you're used to it by now?
