8th Annual JVB Tech Day 4/20/2019

Postby JimVonBaden » Thu Jan 31, 2019 12:16 am

Announcing the 8th Annual JVB Tech Day. It is open to ALL BIKES!

This year it will be April 20, 2019 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 60 bikes, 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 here for great door prizes from http://www.jvbproductions.com and hopefully others.

Last year we had $2200 from great vendors like 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. Watch here for updates. We have $1200 in hand already.

Please let me know if you would like to attend so I can add you to the list.

Yeah, something in the forum changed. It used to resize. Not sure why it isn't now.

Glad to have you!

Looking forward to this year! I had a blast last year and learned a few things. Funny how that happens. Not to mention I got to meet people from as far away as New York City!

For the last 8, and a few years before I started sponsoring it from my company.

Jim is too modest, this thing last year was a blast. He had folks giving 12K maintenance demonstrations, he ran around and helped countless people with annoying little things that they were scratching there head. He opened up his home, garage and countless years of knowledge to all. If you are in town you owe it to yourself to show up. Just my $0.02

I plan to be there! So happy it on the 4/20 this year! When it has been on the last weekend of April it conflicts with the BMWST START event that I always try to attend.
For those that have not attended Jim's Tech day's, you do not want to miss this one - great people, food, and you will always learn something new!

This is always a great event. Unfortunately, it looks like i'll miss it due to family commitments.

Thanks Jim!

Good news! Several people asked about you attending. Want to bring a door prize? :-)

Hi Jim. I'm planning on attending. I'm a BMWBMW member (recently joined). Can you let me know the address, and if I can bring anything (that fits in a top case, such as coffee, donuts, etc)? My email is services@markandangie.org.

Thanks.
