I have the 2014 Wet Head, so I think I need the newer version. I missed the last meeting as I was on travel but will be at MOD this Sunday - hope you and others can make it. Maybe you could send a PM to JVB to update the calendar.


Yes I plan on being there, and yeap I sent Jim a note, he is MIA


So, Wait, When is the Club meeting? There is nothing posted on the calendar. ARGH!!!


Well, somehow I missed a tiny detail, the TECH Day I have been planning to hold since last August Club Meeting is on the same day as the Oct Club Meeting. OCT TECH DAY is hereby cancelled as I see no reason to hold a Tech Day that is in direct conflict to the Board Members chosen the day to hold the club meeting.



Okay let us try this again....... What about the 17th of November, there is NOTHING on the Club Calendar. It is not a holiday, and I asked the boss and she would be okay with this date. But I got side eyed when I asked about the proposed menu, so will have to wait to see, she is just a little tweaked right now about this month's Tech Day being cancelled.

Welcome back Jim. I think Bruce has most of the bugs worked out.

I too hope the bugs on the forum have been corrected. We need clear indication of club meeting, tech days, and other scheduled events!

Hope to see many of you tomorrow at the club's meeting at Bob's BMW dealership!

Alrighty, I mentioned at this month's Tech Day that I am looking for ideas for future Tech Days. For the most bang for the buck. Like for instance a tech day covering a 6k or perhaps a 12k maintenance? Perhaps as Bruce brought up a tech day on how to get the most out of your Navigation. Tips and tricks on changing brake pads? This is just off the top of my head. And as some of these ideas don't require much in the line of equipment they could happen almost anywhere. Maybe at a Club Meeting? Just a thought.

In regards to the folks, I talked to this month Tech day. My offer still holds in helping you finish the scheduled maintenance.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to reading what you are thinking about.

P.s Just so folks know I am currently saving for a tire changer. This is the one I am saving up for https://www.nomartirechanger.com/Classi ... lassic.htm

So unscientific survey..... Taking a look at the upcoming events. Would there be an interest for a Tech Day in May? Say the May 11/12 weekend? April has a tech day and we have one in June. Please let me know.
