Southern Ontario Tech Day May 7th

Anyone that wants to have a tech day at my place again weekends are filling up fast. The day I was thinking about would be May 7th. Do I have enough interest?

Re: Southern Ontario Tech Day May 7th

It would work for me, but would have to leave by about 3:30 pm. I have the BMW Motorrad Reparaturanleitung K 1200 LT. Should I bring that, or do you have one as well? Do we need any tools or supplies?

If I read the second line, the item above is the K 1200 LT Repair Manual (CD Version). I don't speak or read German, so the English portion should help.

Re: Southern Ontario Tech Day May 7th

Bring any special tools you need. I have all the basics. I might be doing a rear tire change if I don't do it before hand. My GTL should be here as well

Re: Southern Ontario Tech Day May 7th

Thanks for again offering to host this tech day, Garry.
I went last year and thoroughly enjoyed the event.....learned a few things, too.
Unfortunately I'll be away that weekend, but I hope you get good weather and a great turnout.
(Everybody gets to try out your new 1600GLT??? Wow!)

Here's a rogue's gallery pic from last year in Garry's yard.

Re: Southern Ontario Tech Day May 7th

A new GTL and a garage full of tools and guys, sounds dangerous to me.

Re: Southern Ontario Tech Day May 7th

I guess my last reply was not that definite.
May 7th - Yes, I'm in.

Hi Garry
