I was thinking the other day how cool it would be to organize one of these. I would be more than happy to host one but would need a tech for it. Maybe later on in the summer we could put something together.

We really just need to come up with a date Howard. 'Roadkingedout' wants me to install an HID and MotoLights at your place. Sounds like fun...and that only takes less than two hours. I could always change the fluids in my bike...albeit prematurely. That never hurts anything.

Or, are we really trying to find someone who needs their valves checked?

Hey Joe,
I don't know about valves, but at 8400 (today) I'm between the 6k and 12k service. By the time we scheduled and had a tech session I'm sure I could use an oil change or maybe even the 12k service.

My goals in hosting a tech session are:
1. Meet area LT owners. From Ohio, I've met you (Cleveland) and Mark Kinney (Dayton). Others are out there!
2. Provide a place for others to get some work done.
3. Show off my wife's catering skills!
4. Maybe get a HID install on my LT.

A pic of our detached garage is attached. 30x40, with 4 overhead doors; 20x52 concrete porch, with half of that under roof.

And we don't have to wait for an official tech session to use the place! Tell Roadkinged out to come on up/down/over (wherever he is -- PA?); you guys can use the place.

Starting to look like we might be getting 2 groups together, with enough advance notice, some may choose both.
I'm in for the Ohio trip, let me know when, will bring cameras.

Cool.

And if I end up hosting one, you better bring your appetite!

Also: plenty of space for tent camping if anyone is so inclined. Very rural area; you'll be lulled to sleep by the tree frogs and crickets, and awakened by wild turkeys! (the feathered kind, not the bottled kind)

I should go over to the Midwest forum and post this info...

There's one TODAY!!

Did y'all miss my post completely!!! Mark Neblett is coming over to my house in No. Virginia today to work on the valves and some other stuff on my bike. There's a few others from around that had expressed interest in stopping over.

This might be a very late call to others in this region, but y'all are welcome.

I live http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...+VA+20171&om=1 . Look for all the bikes in the cul-de-sac.

I did; thanks for letting us know.

The Midwest tech session we are discussion hasn't been declared official yet (it's about too...), so no worries -- no conflicts there.

Hope you all have a great time today.

Yea...but Mark does shoddy work, at best. Good luck getting that bike started once he gets his grimy little lawyer fingers on it!

But really...
Y'all have a great time, and tell him that Joe (messenger13) said "Hello". Mark is "DA MAN"!!!

Hi Howard

Glen from Litchfield, I would love to take the ride down to meet you and some of the other Ohio/midwest guys/gals. Only 2111 miles right now so I guess I would be just watching. Knowledge is power!!!
Keep us informed if you get a date/time.

Thanks
Glen

Yep. My car is a VW Passat with the TDI (diesel) engine. I hosted what they call a "GTG" (Get ToGether) last fall at my place. We had 26 TDIs there (Golfs, Jettas, Beetles, and Passats). Lots of work got done with 4 overheard doors.

Hey Glen (and everybody else),
Look for an announcement soon. We're working on date; when it's determined you'll see an announcement.

It will be a Saturday, hopefully after June 3rd (when my wife is out of school).

Hi Glen,
I may put you in charge of the grill!

Dude: how did you break a vertebrae?! and are you sure you want to ride against doctor's orders? That's nothing to fool around with.

Doc does not know I even own a bike,as to how I did it (didn't want to say here,didn't want to scare anyone into thinking it could happen to them) ...picking up the LT in my driveway-I think.
I can not think of anything else and went undiagnosed for about a month till I got an MRI. picked her up and rode away-have had a fusion B4 thought I aggrevated it, but pain continued so I saw doc. MRI revealed new bones affected my kids think I am superman getting around w/a "broken back".

Hi Howard,
I'd love to join in (if schedule works out!)

I do my own maintenance, have accomplished valves, tank removal, all fluids, installed AutoCom, HID.com low beam, XM, Logjam, Garmin, BMR, on-board compressor, PIAAs in the cowl, etc.

It would be great if someone with experience of the next magnitude
could join the group. With experience in Slave Cylinder, shocks and Final Drive replacement! The routine stuff is well... pretty routine!

Cool. Man, if you can make it we'll make you Honorary Chief Tech or something, though you may have to arm-wrestle Joe/Messenger13 for the title. You're also a candidate for longest distance traveled to get to my place... so far.

Stay tuned for an announcement.

Big 10-4 on THAT, Mike.

(and sorry for calling you "Glen" previously; had you confused with another responder)

Bremen, OH is 10 minutes away. Just south of Bremen is the foothills to the Hocking Hills which -- for my money -- are exactly what I saw at STC II last month. Logan is 20 minutes away, and that IS the Hocking Hills. Lots of curves, hills, hills w/curves, etc. It's not the Smoky Mountains, but there are good roads right here.

Might make a nice test ride area for the tech session we are pondering.

Naw naw... Averill can take it. I am just there to serve...that's all. I don't need a title, or a position. Just point me to the grill!

Averill, I helped Tom Gallo remove his shocks last Sunday. No big deal. So, we're good to go there.

I'd really enjoy getting help with an HID and PIAA 1100X setup (See longer comment in lighting thread from today: http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthre...?t=5757&page=3) and maybe a set mounted on the crash wings. My 03 just went in for the service today to be worked on next week, if there is anyone in CT who would be available sometime after then I'll call the dealer and cancel the 1100X install and will order a new HID setup so we can put the stuff on. FREE MEAL!!!
I'm in CT so I think OH may be a little far for the lights but will be watching this thread as a possible excuse to take a long weekend!

It's not clear to me if you Connecticut folks are coming to our Ohio Tech Session on June 17. If you are: cool. Just let me know. I'm going to start another thread so we can keep track of who's attending.

HI Howard,
I just read the invite in the midwest forum. I'm going to be on a Smokey Mountains ride on the 17th so won't be able to make it.
Thank you for the invite though, maybe next time!

Still looking to do an HID/PIAA session in the CT area though maybe the weekend of June 3rd??

Post CT/NE Tech Day

I will be around on the 3rd. I have both and did the HID myself. Do we want to plan something for the 3rd for the NE folks? Again I can host here in Colchester. Plently of space in garage. If you are coming from a far I may even be able to offer floor space or a couch. Or if you like camping plenty of lawn. Lets see if we can nail this down tomorrow or so. I will check with the Misses to make sure the 3rd is not spoken for already but I can not think of any thing right now. I will post again Friday mid day.

I'm in!!!!!
I live right outside Hartford so I'll just be coming over for the day - Lucky you??
I'm going to call the dealer (Cliff's)and cancel them installing the PIAA's - I'm going to order the HID tomorrow so we'll have everything in time. Since you are riding with an HID, do you think I should get a low beam and a high beam, or just the low?
Just a heads up, the only thing that could be a problem is if the bike is not out of the service dept. by the 3rd, but that is giving them over 2 weeks (it went in today) to get the front tire put on and do a few other relatively minor service items.

Let me know if you would need me to bring anything, I'll send you my contact info so we can work out the details.

THANKS AGAIN to the group!

My calendar is clear for the 3rd. So how about we meet at like 9AM. PM for address or directions. Also if there is someone out there with more experience that would like to join please speak up.

I did just the low beam HID. To me it is enough if you do the low beam and the PIAAs. My PIAAS are mounted under the nose cone not under the crash bars.

I may have to go to Maine on the 3/4th but I would be interested in watching and more especailly talking over the PIAA install. I will PM for address in the event Maine falls through.

Hey Fred, you could still "swing by" central Ohio on June 17. The door is always open.

Did you get any photos from Killboy during STC II last month?

Hi Howard, Just this morning I looked up Rushville, OH on mapquest and thought about it. That is a bit of a stretch and i have a wedding to attend the following weekend but you never know where I will show up. No need to feed me. On the Killboy thing I saw where they got me twice on my run but I am not into buying photos.

Yep, that would be a bit of a ride for you. If you decide at the last minute to do it, come on "over".

Of the 4 photos Killboy got me on: 2 were OK, 2 were lame. I was riding so slowly I think I was actually going backwards! (in fact, in one of the photos I pulled off near his car to let a $#%@ S2000 pass me)

Hi jack!!! (Brewster,NY)

Or is it Hi Ray -

Grew up in Carmel; folks still live there. Was a Lineman in Brewster years ago for the power company.

Would love to attend the Tech Session on June 3rd but have a previous engagement in Montecello. I'll stay over in Brewster at a buddies house and shove off to Colchester CT Sat AM if I can break the engagement.

We'll have to get together sometime.

You ride the speed that works for you, period! Everyone else can piss off.
The best speed is the one that brings you in safely, nothing else matters.

Nice guys!!!

I move out of CT and, suddenly, there are all sorts of tech days going on! Where were you when me and Cliff had our "discussion" about customer service and how long a bike should be in the service dept????

Fred, keep the faith going strong. See if you can get Girard and Barrnett involved.


See you all at CCR?????

Hey Rock, I appreciate that. I just hope you can say the same thing when you're behind me some time.
