Gentlemen, (there seem to be no ladies on GTs here, unless you count Hazard
I am having a bunch of my riding friends (mostly RTs, gasp) over for what we call a "Tech Day" on August 16th and 17th.
What is a Tech Day? Well, I'm glad you asked!!! Basically, what happens is several people, nOObs and vetrans, all converge on my place and sit around all day doing maintenance on their bikes and telling lies about how fast or far we went.
We've got quite a bit of floor or yard (for tents) space for anyone riding a ways, or who might want to stick around for the Sat. night liquid refreshments. (If you do, we will steal your keys for the evening, but gladly give them back in the morning.) We even have a real bar and a well lit horse shoe pit for your entertainment.
We can't do valves on the GT yet, but I'd be happy to help with other maintenance or farkling if anyone has a project.
It really is a great time and if there are several folks who don't need to do anything to their bikes, there are several great roads nearby for a short day ride. I'm only 20 minutes from the Napa Valley (busy) or Lake Berryessa (fantastic roads, some chance of squids.)
Lunch will be provided, and a lot of great folks are coming.
Please PM me for address and phone # if you are interested. I'll need a firm headcount by August 9th or so.
The planning thread is here, on the BMW Sport Touring board
, as this is where most of the folks I've had the pleasure of riding with are.
I hope some folks can make it!!! I'd love to be able to put a face to some names around here, as I haven't been able to meet hardly any of Y'all yet.
