All;

The 5th Annual West MI Tech Daze is scheduled for September 26th. We'll be posting some additional information very soon, but be aware we have a NEW LOCATION and a new host!!! I know you'll enjoy the changes.
thumbsup

We are seeking "technical brains/muscle" to help with the tough questions. Let us know if you can help in that area please.

Please feel free to post your intentions and spread the word!

Stay tuned....

Steve (Nevets) Petersen

The B.R.R. is the following weekend and I'm hoping to take "the long way there" so I may be on the road the weekend of the 26th.

If not, count my muscles and brains in.

I am the sucker that will be hosting the Tech Daze, but very glad to do it.

The Tech Day will take place at my business, Black Swamp Percussion. What the heck is that? We manufacture concert and orchestral percussion musical instruments. We have an 11,000 sq ft manufacturing facility with plenty of room for bikes. There is a large parking lot out back too. People will be free to use the tools we have, plus we have compressed air, and a variety of metalworking equipment like saws, buffers, grinders, a lathe, plus a wire welder. If someone has it in the their brain to make some custom gizmo for their bike this will be the place to do it. We do have some scrap metal like aluminum bar stock, rod, etc. that you can freely use. We have plenty of large fans for TB syncs.

The business name is Black Swamp Percussion and the offices face James St. However, riders will want to come north off of Business 196 (locally known as Chicago Drive) onto 112th Ave. You will cross some tracks and be approaching a light. You will want to turn into the driveway on the right (east) side of the road right next to Fastenal and before you get to the light. We'll put up a BMW Tech Daze sign at both the office parking lot (on James St.) and on the driveway that leads to the back of the building (on 112th).


Address is:

Black Swamp Percussion
11114 James St.
Zeeland, MI 49464

R.S.V.P.'s are very helpful to plan for space, food, etc. You can do that by emailing me, Eric Sooy, at esooy@blackswamp.com. Putting something like "BMW Tech Day" in the subject line is helpful for me to find your email in my obscenely full inbox.

Here is a map to the location and a few shots of our digs:

I have a new in the box cylinder head cover, a complete service manual and a couple of new oil filters I will part with for moderate fees if anyone attending is interested. I changed bikes and this is for the previous 1150. Head cover is left side with gaskets. Let me know if you will be there and are interested. Either pm or email at jandd@core.com I check the email more often.

Another update:

I will have a tire changing setup here as I am buying Godfather's setup that is complete with Mitch's Mojo blocks and lever. Leave the guns, but bring your tires.

Does anyone who is planning on coming have a Twinmax that can be used for TB sync people?
