Jim,

I'm planning on coming ... since I just had my annual service done, I'll bring my baby (my bike that is) and learn by watching, working on other's bikes () and lubbing my internals.

What can/should we bring to assist with the overall event?

Thanks
Myron

Hi Myron,

Just come and hang out, you will need nothing.

For those working, bring your supplies, send your tires to me, and I'll supply the tools, food and drink. Maybe a bit of knowledge and assistance too!

PM me for an address.

Jim

Looks like my friend has a couple of brand new in the box JCWhitney Top Cases like I have that he is going to have available for sale if anyone is interested. He was saying at cost of $40 each. Here is how I mounted mine on my GS:







Holds a full face helmet and room for more.

Here is a link: http://www.jcwhitney.com/garage-pro-...60612y2005u0j3

They will fit on any bike with a rack. I know for a fact they fit on a KLR and a GS, and have seen them on lots of other bikes. Decent quality, lockable, and big enough.

Just a little added value for the tech day. He said he will bring them if anyone is interested. Just let me know.

Jim

PS We have a decen't sized crowd coming. It should be fun.

Jim,

I'm not really a BMW owner type of person, but I sure seem to have an influx of those critters in my little shop here in Richmond for repair and other work. If for no other reason, I may try and make it up to this little shindig just to meet you, and yes, scarf down a few vittles (I'm not proud!). Lot going on, on my plate, but will do my best to join in the fun. The Concours Owners Group (COG) has had a number of these sessions locally, and it was always a fun time to meet new friends, reacquaint ourselves with some of the old, and just enjoy the camaraderie of each other's company.

If you would, please PM me your address JIC I can get away.

TIA

.

Tech Day...Thanks

Jim-

This sounds fantastic. I'd love to come out and gain some knowledge from those more experienced and meet some local folks.

Great idea.
Thanks for the invite.

I wish I lived a little closer! Maybe I should think about moving to the DC area?

Hey Kimo! Glad to have you come by! I have a very pretty wife that will be partly laid up with foot surgery, and her best friend who is no slacker that have offered to help, bit I am sure they wouldn't mind some assistance!

Jim,

Count me in on the Tech Day, Vittles and one of those JCW travel trunks, my KLR needs one. I have purchased one of your videos to preform the maintenance on my 2011 R1200GSA but have been too chicken sh*t / lazy to do the valves or sync the TB's. Just had Morton's do both, but would like someone to look over my shoulder while I attempt to sync the TB's the 1st time.

Please PM me your address.

Just a little bump!

Saturday looks like mid 60's and sunny! Perfect tech day weather!

Let me know if you wish to come, and/or still need an address!

Looks like a nice sized group showing up, but there is room for more!

Jim - I just learned about it at Laurel Fork and I'm in. Would you send me your address so I can have tires shipped to you. Thanks for hosting. - Chuck
