    Thumbs up 4th Annual JVB Tech Day, April 18th, 2015, Alexandria, VA.

    It is time to start planning the 4th Annual JVB Tech Day. It is open to ALL BIKES!

    This year it will be April 18, 2015 at my home in Alexandria, VA.

    As always food and drink (non-alcoholic) will be provided, hot coffee and bagels in the morning and lunch of burgers, dogs, chili and a few sides. All complimentary!

    All you have to do is show up. Come with maintenance or farkle installation in mind, or just to hang out and watch. There will be several people available to lend a hand, tools, GS-911 and Harmonizer for the BMW people, and space to work.

    ALL bikes are welcome, and nearly any level of work to be accomplished. Last year we had 38 bikes, with plenty of room for more. I will have at least one lift, hopefully two, and space for lots of work to get done. Tire changes can also be done (you can have them delivered to me, just PM me).

    Great door prizes from www.jvbproductions.com and www.Beemerboneyard.com !

    Please let me know what you would like to see from Beemer Boneyard!

    Also, http://shop.hexdiagnostics.co.za/ and http://www.gs911usa.com/ have generously supplied me with the GS911 and the GS911 wifi for use at the tech day!





    Bring your supplies, and we will put them to work!

    PM me with your interest and I will give my address a week or so before the Tech Day.

    Your garage looks real neat and organized. Is this why you have not had time to do a video for the F800GS?

    Really cool of you to put something like this together Jim. Looks like you've got a good turn out

    While you are messing around in a garage that is cleaner then mine before I moved anything into it, perhaps you could test the 911 on an Apple product if someone there at your tech day has the setup.

    I've used it with two iPhones, a 4S and 6, and an iPad. Works great. The WiFi is just a web page, so it works with anything with WiFi capability. Slick interface.

    That said, to reset the service reminder, you will need a PC based computer, for now. They are working on that and should have an iAp soon.

    Great, thanks. I have a service minder on for some time due to, Ahem, a BMW dealer that, although I was having a front tire, oil and filter, didn't reset the reminder because........drum-roll.......I didn't ask for it to be put on the computer.........and that costs extra
    I will be looking for a 911 when it's Apple compatible
