I'll throw my hat in the ring here too....I have a copious amount of garage space, regular tools, and a handful of v-strom, and BMW specific tools too (KLR's just use rocks right?). I have access to any motorcycle repair manual in digital, to include the BMW rep-rom. Just let me know, because I have to clean out the garage of last winters projects before I can get many more bikes in.

I'm interested in getting some electrical work done and adding a light bar so a drill press or good drill would need to be borrowed.

I need to check my 6K service, or at least parts of it. Can't take it to the dealer till I get employed, and I need the bike now!

Casa de Talgach

Casa de Talgach is available. PLENTY of space (6 bays) and I'll move some of the current residents out to make more room. Drill press, many, many tools, air com-squeezers, engine hoists, and lots of tools. I have a nice tire stand and lots of irons.

Next weekend is hosed due to prior familial commitments. I'll be out of town on the first weekend in May, but after that I'm open. I know we have six bikes to put new tires on and the rears are ready. Fronts are in transit from Texas sometime in May. We don't have to wait for that to get a tech-day in.

I'd like to do this on a Saturday. Start at around 10:00am.

All makes and models welcome. Yes, AKJeff, we can do a swap on your XR whenever you are ready...don't have to wait til May.

Jim

A REAL tire machine and a pro shop......I'm all about man handling tires with irons and brute force to prove our manliness BUT a machine sounds kind of nice.
SO, when is the Friar Cave available?

The Abbey sounds wonderful! Maybe I can get my brakes bled.

I'm all for hauling some meat for the grill!

Sweet, yeah. Right down the road too. If you don't have one Mike, I can bring my GS911 and laptop if anyone with a CANBUS BMW wants to take a look inside the computer.
