JVB Tech Day June 27, 2020 (New date due to COVID)

Postby JimVonBaden » Wed Jan 22, 2020 12:21 am

Announcing the 9th Annual JVB Tech Day. It is open to ALL BIKES!

This year it will be June 27, 2020 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 65 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).

We will also have a small free/flea market where you can sell of give away your excess moto goodies.

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

Last year we had $2600 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.

Door Prizes:

JVB Productions, 5 certificates for the video download of your choice.

http://www.marcparnes.com 2 50% off coupons

https://motopowerpuck.com/ has some goodies for us!

http://www.beemerboneyard.com is in for more great service supplies. Let me know what you would like to see them provide?

Jim,

In terms of scheduling, we're having our open house on April 18, so if you can avoid that day, we'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Reminder for those attending the tech day, there will be a Free/Flee Market so you can give/sell your moto related stuff. Bring extra space because I have a few bins of items, mostly for free, from my recent workshop build, and subsequent sorting of moto stuff. I'll post photos in the near future.

Feel free to post up anything you plan to bring to give/sell to other attendees.

If COVID 19 does not get me till then, I will be there. I went with Gordon last time so I do not know the address because I just followed. Please PM the address if you have time, I do not want to miss it.

Assuming this is over by then, I will send the address about 2 weeks before the tech day. If you plan on shipping parts or tires, PM me and I will give you the address now.

Thanks,

Jim :cool:
