Fine Tech Session
I'm sure that others will post as well, but I wanted to be the first to thank Jim (and his wife Amy!) for hosting a fine tech session today at their house. Despite pouring rain, 6 of us made it to the shelter of Jim's garage in Colchester. Distance kudos to Smitty, who rode up from Long Island, and Chuck, who started out yesterday in Binghampton, NY, and rode over from Carmel today. We did a tranny/rear drive fluid change on Jim's '05 (three of us brought the notorious 14 mm tranny drain plug hex socket!) and a HID (hi and low beam) and PIAA install on Kevin's '03. (We all had to put on sunglasses when Kevin lit up his new lights - unbelievable difference over stock.) Jim and Amy fed us royally. I'm not going to mention the number of screws that were left over after the bikes were buttoned up or the amount of tranny oil on the garage floor. I had a terrific time meeting new folks, connecting again with some folks I had met before, talking about BMW LT stuff and about riding, and helping out a bit with the work. I hope we do this again before too long, and would be glad to have a tech session at my place in Hamden, CT.
