I was in April last year? Well as long as my tires aren't to bad then I might be in. I got a bunch of people to join me as well, maybe a dozen. Let me know when you have a definative answer.

I'm working both days proposed so I may have to spend some personal days or some vacation days. April 15 or May 6 would work better for me.

Dirty T, There making the craking noise here and there. I rode with them like that when you me and Way did the Kelowna ride last year. But They need some servicing just not sure what could happend if they don't have them done by the run. I already bought the replacement part for the bars.

i rode to kelowna and back on torched head bearings.

wasnt too bad, just as long as you get used to the clicking every time you touch the brakes its not too bad, its not like the front end is going to come off in your hands......

bit again, not a bad idea to get them done. only problem with doing them yourself is that they are a press fit bearing. not like the timken style used in the other 99 precent of bikes.

like everything else its special to be differant.

Are they cup and cone like the steering head bearings in /5 to /7 BMWs or are they ball bearings like the rear wheel bearings?

If they are cup and cone they are easy to get out. Just take the cone out and run a bead of weld around the inside of the outer race. When the weld shrinks the race will fall out. Be careful though. Don't weld them to the fork mount.
