Rich Nagy hosts Airhead tech day

Posted By Bruce McKelvy #127096, Regional Coordinator, Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Mac Pac and Airheads member Rich Nagy hosted a tech day for Airheads at his home this past Sunday (5 Nov 17). The event was well attended with about 25 people. There would have been even more had the rain date for the Del Val BMW clubs Fall Foliage run not conflicted with it. I and a number of others would have liked to attend both, but the timing would not allow it. The tech day consisted of a presentation of how to properly adjust Airhead valves and carburetors. Lots of wrenching followed and "everyone's bikes went home running a little sweeter," as per Rich’s Facebook post.

For clubs struggling to host meaningful events, these tech days are at the top of the list for getting people involved and showing that being a member of a club is important to maintaining our bikes and enjoying our hobby. Riders can save a lot of money by learning to work on their own bikes from the vast body of knowledge available in most clubs.

Rich said, "It was a pleasure to have a hands on tech session for all to take advantage of the expertise of the caliber that Bob Sipp and Dave Cushing provided. It is also great to note that the attendees all were extremely interested how to work on their bikes in an area that is mysterious to many, the carburetors. Once they were tuned they all ran smooth and I’m sure that their bikes felt like new rides on the way home."

Rich is known for offering up his garage for tech days as often as he can in order to promote the proper care and feeding of Airheads.
