Hey Gary, nice to have you around. There must be a way, I don't have a computer on my 99. We are having a tech day on April 24th, hope your able to make it. We will have a few LT's and just do a day of work on then. You don't have to do work you can just come and meet us and have a coffee. Some of us have done alot to our bikes you may be interested in.

Ride safe.

Garry

Wink Re: Newbie Question

Hey Gary, welcome to the madhouse. We may have a Canadian computer which we could just swap if yours is a US one. I am pretty sure it is just a simple swap out, but may be mistaken. I need to confirm that we still have the computer also. It is off of a 2000 Canadian LT which was totaled down here.

If interested please drop us a PM.

Bjossi, I'll be in Reykjavik for about 1 hour on Aug 14 for a stopover to Germany. On our way back we will be there for about 1-1/2 hours on Sept 5 on our return to Canada.

You might be able to visit the Blue Lagoon on your way back - but it will be tight

Tech day

Hello Folkies - where is the tech day being held? Im coming down from Owen Sound with an 05 LT - would love to get together. Was told by someone at Miami BMW where my girl came from, that changing from US to CDN (metric) was relatively easy programming. Have been searching on the net for something to tell me how but havent come up with anything yet.
Let me know and hope to attend and meet some 'brothers'.....
