GrainStorm VI...Return of the Sarni...

Post by MacV2 » Fri Feb 22, 2019 4:48 pm

...Bacon of course...

Yes folks it that time of year again.

The Award winning* GrainStorm workshopday franchise enters it's 6th year.

*https://www.vtr1000.org/phpBB3/viewtopi ... 18&t=40306

So GrainStorm VI will take place on MAY 4th 2019.

All welcome even non Storm riders...

Doors open 08.00 hours.

Tea & coffee & possibly bacon sarnies till 09.30...after that self service. It is customary for attendees to bring biscuits, snacks, nibbles & comestibles. Bring your own particular favourite but don't get mad if someone else munches them...

I might be doing the Air ambulance thing again this year, have to get in touch with them to arrange it... Awaiting arrival of this years collection tin. Last years total of £103 to beat...

All welcome...PM me for full addy details or look on google maps or some such, Isle of Grain, Kent. ME3 to see if the journey is worth getting out of bed for.

See here for updated directions... https://www.vtr1000.org/phpBB3/viewtopi ... 26#p410056

& see here for the dissapointing news that is new speed cameras...

https://www.vtr1000.org/phpBB3/viewtopi ... 13&t=43009


As is the norm for a workshopday the whole idea is to do the work on your bike yourself...there will be someone on hand to talk you through it if you not 100% confident. So bring any parts & fluids you will need & tools if possible.

If you want to attend just for the craic, to meet fellow Stormers or just to talk general bollacks..thats fine...we need just one bike to be worked on to make it a workshopday...& it gives the rest of us someone to mock... :wink:

I have paddock stands, abba stands & most tools...but please bring you own tools if you can...I don't mind lending out tools but keeping track of them when there are loads of bods around is a bit tough. remember the old saying...

''If you handle another man's tool treat it as you would treat you own & always return it wiped clean with no messy residues upon it...''

There will be plenty of rags, paper towels, fluid receptacles ect on hand. Plus air compresor + tools, bearing tools, brake tools & large hammers.

Remember you are working on your own bike.

There is plenty of room but no responsibility is taken by me for any ham fisted broken bits or any baboon treading on your removed body work.

I do have some spares, oils, fluids & lube if needed.

It has to be a Saturday in case a major part is required & a trip to a bike shop is required. Although I do have a good selection of spare parts...

If you want to attend then drop me a PM to start with. Inc. your user name & what you intend to be doing. In return I will send you full address & a contact number..

New members with less than 50 posts...get posting or post on here & I will PM you.

I am not putting my Address, phone number or e-mail in this post...Contact via PM only...

ATTENDEES...Provisional depending on weather for some of them...
