Or maybe I'll do one adjustment and slightly turn towards soft. But I don't even know - I might just be overstating it based on the half an hour drive back home. I think I need to drive it a bit more to confirm - and the best part of it is that the wife drove the car to work this morning and hasn't complained yet about the stiffness, so maybe it's not too bad.
yea if i were in the same situation, i probably wont touch it either. i guess i was lucky mine only involved removing of the wheel then i could use the special KW wrenches to adjust the ride height, damping and rebound. the rears would require pulling back of the carpet to get to the top of the knob on top of the shock but that wasnt too bad either. no metal covering the top of the shock, just carpeting.

I'm in. There is a great little place on St Charles, Pizzalini, in Kirkland off the Trans Canada. Holds about 30 people. Never really crowded and they make a nice, inexpensive breakfast.

All other chime in.

I think I can make it.

Btw, can you make a better advertising spiel for your NH drive? Trying to convince the wife but "driving along twisty roads for a while and oh btw outlet shopping" did not go across very well :]

Someone organise this. I will most probably be available. I'm not sure if it's the 29th or the 30th that I can't show up... one of the two. Brunch at le Bistro at Marché Central was a pretty central location. But I know many participants always complain if it's in Laval, downtown or centrally located.. No one ever complains when it's in the West Island. Makes me think that all complainers are from the West Island.

PS I did not say that all West Islanders are complainers.

On a more relevant note, bistro Marche Central works for me! If it's the Presse Cafe that's there, we can talk to the owner who has a super-boosted (28psi) Evo that he never drives anywhere, heh.

That's what Tony says every time, and yet everyone complains anyway.

well we are driving down through the white mountain national forest. there are some very nice driving roads through that area. along the way there will be a couple of nice driving routes as well.

the inn that we are staying at has a rustic style but is very safe and always has friendly service. we'll have dinner and drinks there on saturday evening. my aunt (along with her husband) has been running the inn for 25 years.

last 2 shots show pictures of the inn.
