That would be great! I would love to see how you set them up!

This is the tire set-up I will have at the tech day!

Changed a rear tire for an R1200GS Adventure, about my 400th tire.













Tested my new HF digital Torque Wrench. Dead on!

like the look of that digital torque wrench adapter. May just have to swing by my local HF and pick one up.

I was surprised at how easy it was to use, AFTER I took my time to figure it out. Hint, read the directions.

Hey Guys,
Beemerboneyard will be sending a bunch of tools to the tech day for you guys to use. These include a servo assist brake bleed funnel, a set of Oilhead/Hexhead feeler gauges, a Carbtune throttle body synch tool, a final drive oil filler bottle and a cap coil puller tool. Jim will then give them away as door prizes. Not our neck of the woods but wanted to contribute to the cause anyway. Hope you guys have fun!
Mike

Jim,

Great gathering and I hope to join again this year.

Hell I might even have a beemer by then!

Will you have DVD's available on-site?

Thanks,
