7th Annual JVB Tech day in Alexandria, VA. 4/21/2018

Postby JimVonBaden » Sun Jan 21, 2018 7:01 pm

Announcing the 7th Annual JVB Tech Day. It is open to ALL BIKES!

This year it will be April 21, 2018 at my home in Alexandria, VA.

As always food and drink (non-alcoholic) will be provided, hot coffee and bagels in the morning and lunch of burgers, dogs, chili and a few sides. All complimentary!

All you have to do is show up. Come with maintenance or farkle installation in mind, or just to hang out and watch. There are always several people available to lend a hand, tools, GS-911 regular and WiFi for the Wetheads and 2 Harmonizers to sync your throttle bodies/carbs, and plenty of space to work.

ALL bikes are welcome, and nearly any level of work to be accomplished. Last year we had 35 bikes despite the rain, with plenty of room for more. I will have at least one lift, hopefully two, and space for lots of work to get done. Tire changes can also be done (you can have them delivered to me, just PM me).

Check through the thread for great door prizes from http://www.jvbproductions.com and hopefully others.

Last year we had $1600 in door prizes including a 4 HexiCans from http://www.beemershop.com and a bunch of service supplies from http://www.beemerboneyard.com. We had half a dozen more vendors donate great prizes. See the link to it here: Link! Everyone got a door prize, and I had a couple left over that I took to our local rally!

I will have a selection of DVDs as door prizes as well.

I will post door prizes here on this post.

So far I have commitments for door prizes from:
http://www.beemerboneyard.com
http://www.beemershop.com
http://www.bestrestproducts.com
http://www.marcparnes.com
www.skenelights.com

Bring your supplies, and we will put them to work!

PM me with your interest and I will give my address a week or so before the Tech Day.

I will post the attendees here. Please RSVP to me and I will give my address. I will also give my address to those wanting to ship tires and supplies. (You must take your old tires with you.):

I hate that I have to miss your Tech Day this year. It is not just fun and informative, you got great swag!

I'd just like to second what Bruce said. JVB puts on a tremendous 'Slack Pack' {even when it's raining heavily like last year}. He also will share tools and lets you brutalize his tire changing stand (ain't that right Endo B ?). =D>

Me and Karen will actually be weekending at the MOA Getaway in Fontana. Maybe we'll need servicing in 2019... :friday:

Cheers! P & K
