    Sunday morning started with coffee and donuts-- and getting thing loaded onto the bikes.

    The XJ RELAY II has begun! "The Bag" has started out with: some xj4Ever stickers, some Excell Yamaha key rings from the local dealer, a Progressive Insurance kickstand plate, and a log book.

    The first few legs are being worked out right now, and The Bag is being outfitted a bit more. Then it will head out to wherever. I will start a sticky Forum, too.

    Date for next Year's CNYCC#12 - is expected to be June 8, 2019.

    Stay tuned for other entries from this year's carb clinic as people get home and have time to post here!

    We had a few less people than anticipated, but we sure had a great time again:). It was good to see everyone, and I'm already looking forward to the next one.:)

    Huge thanks to Dave for organizing a great weekend. Weather was perfect, food was excellent and plenty. We all learned a lot, laughed and most importantly made new friends. And we got to ride a tractor :)
    My bike is still as dirty as it was before - I guess I'll try again next year.

    I'll make it out there some day. Until then, I'll just enjoy it all vicariously from my laptop.

    Just wanted to post some of the pics that I took. There are others that are related to the brake job and the tasty engine guards from Chacal @ xj4ever... but those will be posted to different threads in the (hopefully) near future.

    A stop along the way... Maybe a half hour away from my destination....

    There was a Big Dog there! I hear it bites, so stay away... Or maybe just the owner bites...

    Some of the line-up!

    The group photo earlier in this thread was missing our host... Hogfiddles. He is in this one.

    Here's another shot of the line-up.

    The next Day, Saftie and I headed out to Lake George. We rode north along the lake. Here's a stop in Bolton Landing.

    Awesome pics, Nuch! I hadn't included the Big Dog in anything, but thanks for taking that pic, too! That's a nice shot--I'm gonna save that

    There are more... I have to dig into my phone for those, but I'll post them when I get a chance. I'm not thrilled with many of the pictures I got from my camera. The color just isn't there. My old crappy iPhone 5s captured the colors so much better. It was a beautiful "blue sky day," and so many of my DSLR pics looked gray and desaturated. I have to look at why it is doing that. I'm sure it is a "user error."

    I'll send the Hi-Rez image of the Big Dog...

    Another Great Carb Clinic, I know I speak for everyone when I say thank you again for what you do. Also thanks to Len @ xj4ever for the parts and guidance. I'll post the brake rebuild and engine case guard images soon. I'm off to work now!

    Dwayne! Good to see you! Yes, it was a nice change of pace :). Although a couple guys from PA ran into rain about 15 mi south of Binghamton for the rest of trip to southern PA...

    According the reports here, the weather for the NOCC should be picture perfect, too!

    You're welcome to have some of mine!!! Though it does help me stay warm when I get caught in a down pour on the bike just as I get to PA....had to stop to get some garbage bags to make a poncho! Lol
