Feb 1 thru 3, 2013 Pennsylvania Airhead SuperTech (PA)
The Pennsylvania Airheads will hold our SuperTech event again this winter in Boyertown, PA 19525 (about 50 miles northwest of Philadelphia, PA). This will be a weekend filled with airhead tech sessions and multi-media expert advice and experience as well as some great camaraderie. Training sessions will cover how airhead systems and components work, how to maintain and overhaul them, how to get out of trouble on the side of the road and how to keep these great bikes safe and reliable. Sessions will mostly focus on the ‘«ˇlater‘«÷ airheads from /5 through end of production. We will have our complete collection of component cutaways and demonstration units and new session topics for 2013. We'll probably bring back some old favorites too. Oh, and since it did not snow in Boyertown last year I'm sure it won't snow this year either, eh? Beauty!
The keynote speaker at the Saturday night banquet, will be one our strongest SuperTech supporters, a regular instructor and an outstanding friend to Airheads and BMW in general, one of the most knowlegable Airhead technical brains and a giver without parallel - non other than Tom Cutter. Tom will conduct two tech sessions/Q&As but this year will also regail us with stories at the banquet - many of them based on actual facts. You know Tom's background spans the Butler and Smith years, the R90S Daytona Superbike experiences, the rollout and history of every airhead model and is ongoing with BMW racing today. We are excited for the opportunity to learn from him and about him..
We will gather for lies and tire kicking on Friday night for those arriving early and the tech sessions will begin at 8:00am on Saturday morning, running all morning. We‘«÷ll bring in lunch then finish the teaching day around 5pm. The banquet dinner that evening will start around 6:00 for tire kicking time with Tom and the other instructors, then dinner, foolishness and a fascinating presentation.
Sessions will begin again Sunday morning and activities will conclude by noon so everyone will be able to travel home that afternoon. This will be a unique opportunity to get valuable maintenance, trouble shooting and restoration knowledge and to defeat the winter doldrums and PMS (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome). Great info, great camaraderie and great time with world famous airhead experts.
Our goal is to maximize the value and access to the instructors for those attending so only 60 slots are available for SuperTech. Attendance is on a pre-registration basis only. Fees for the weekend will be: $112 for Airheads Beemer Club members and $132 for non-members. Fee includes all tech sessions, coffee and donuts each morning, Saturday lunch and the banquet dinner.
Limited seating is available for spouses at the banquet for an additional $32 per head. (A very nice affair and there are many things for spouses to do here in Pennsylvania while you are at the Tech sessions). In past years we have had numerous spouses join us Saturday evening.
Registration opens December 1st, 2012. Send a check for the total amount made out to Robert Sipp at 2188 Johnston Ave, Bethlehem, PA 18015. Please include, typed on a separate sheet, your name, address, ABC membership number, phone number and email address to facilitate contacting you with further details. Bob can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if needed, but only received checks will count. It‘«÷s only fair to everyone. Once the max participant number is reached we will hold further checks on a standby list and return them after the weekend has completed. We have always gone to the standby list, sometimes during the final week, so its worth the wait.
We will be supplying further details regarding motel and airport info, maps, schedules and driving directions to folks after they register. Please do not drag your feet on this one. This event has sold out quickly in past years and slots may again fill up fast. We look forward to seeing you there and having a great weekend together.
