4th Annual JVB Tech Day, April 18th!

It is time to start planning the 4th Annual JVB Tech Day. It is open to ALL BIKES!

This year it will be April 18, 2015 at my home in Alexandria, VA.

As always food and drink (non-alcoholic) will be provided, hot coffee and bagels in the morning and lunch of burgers, dogs, chili and a few sides. All complimentary!

All you have to do is show up. Come with maintenance or farkle installation in mind, or just to hang out and watch. There will be several people available to lend a hand, tools, GS-911 and Harmonizer for the BMW people, and space to work.

ALL bikes are welcome, and nearly any level of work to be accomplished. Last year we had 38 bikes, with plenty of room for more. I will have at least one lift, hopefully two, and space for lots of work to get done. Tire changes can also be done (you can have them delivered to me, just PM me).

Check through the thread for great door prizes from www.jvbproductions.com !





Bring your supplies, and we will put them to work!

PM me with your interest and I will give my address a week or so before the Tech Day.

A few photos of the past events:








Last year:









If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

Hi Jim! Unless something comes up, I'm in. ST is probably due for an FI re-sync.

I've marked it on my calendar and hope to be there! I should have completed my 24K service by then so I'm thinking a canisterectomy would be great! Do I need to bring any special things/parts to perform this operation? Fortunately, it won't be 18 degrees in April, like is was 6 weeks ago, when I rode two hours to your place!

Or maybe MORE LED's! Can too much light ever be enough?

Typically it has been in the 70's in late April! Hopefully the weather will be good!

Looking forward to seeing old and new friends, and the challenges presented at the tech day!

Thanks,

Hey Jim,

I definitely want to come back for the tech day this year. Wish i could have stayed longer last year, so making sure not to schedule anything else that day.

No major work to do, but might see if you can assist with an HID headlight install.

I'm in! Now look what you're making me do.

Now that I'm committed to attending, I'm looking at all the farkle books and sites, trying to find something to bring for an install. I'm sure no one else is doing that...

BTW - Do you think we can add a catch cable to my Kirk's to keep the lid from falling forward? What parts do I need to acquire beforehand?
