    We have two spline jobs, a clutch job, tune the cafe /6. Is Roy doing the push rod seals? I might try to repair one of the heated grips on my bike. I'll be out of touch for a few days, going to soak a minnow and jig a worm looking down a ice hole. Plan on getting things rolling at about 9am and cooking burgers at noon. email or pm me I'll get back next week. No one has spoken about changing tires so Crazy Al might not bring the tire changer, so speak up soon.

    Hi Mike. I think Eric already knows about it, and it turns out I will be out of town that weekend. Pushrod seals will have to wait.
    19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.

    Im passing this on if anyone needs anything. Its about 15min from my house if we run into trouble or need parts.



    Mike tell your attendees in your Emails that Thoroughbred Cycles will give them,

    20% off tires and tubes and Spectro oil products and other aftermarket parts,

    10% off genuine BMW parts.

    Of course that means NO SHIPPING. They just have to say itÔÇÖs for you Tech Tune up Clinic when they call or stop in for parts.

    Mike, I really appreciate you putting this get-together on. I have been looking forward to being there just to hang out but my kids, who were supposed to visit last weekend , decided to show up this weekend instead. I hope that you have a great party!

    Are there any tools that will be needed that I might have? Torque wrenches, etc.

    One More Day!

    I'll be there!
    Please let me know if anything else is needed. I'll bring an ATV lift to work on my cafe, along with any other bikes in need. I think I'll also throw in a couple folding chairs... couldn't hurt. I'm also going to bring my camera to capture the event for posterior... I mean prosperity.

    Good times, great food, and Airheads! Everything got accomplished and all the bikes worked afterwards. There were some challenges that were overcome, and information was exchanged. That's what it's all about. Thanks, Mike, for the day!
