I guess someone needs to round up the Club's wheel balancer thingy to Noels to enable Diggers front wheel to be balanced sweet as.

Tuning Day June

Postby wightman » Sat Jun 13, 2020 8:33 pm

Noel had his hands full with a big turnout of 20 bikes to the June Tuning Day. A brace of airheads had routine diagnostics and tuning done, with valuable input from Alex, Noel, Nev and Jono. Lefty persevered with the convoluted "block of flats" topbox, which required more bushings, spacers, pins, springs, washers, circlips, widgets, gadgets and the occasional wollop with a 8 pound rubber mallet, to get the lid to open and close smoothly. DFS managed to get the PD murmuring quietly in the corner, only two beats away from total harmony (leaky hairline cracks in the headers, which rescued the bike from perfection).

Bozo and Jono beavered away on Ariel's la Boganette, bringing her to tip top shape, to be given back to Froy. Some of the idle punters were given the opportunity to hear a rambling and detailed account of the vagaries and the titivations done to Noel's breathtaking '48 HD.

Ray swooped in on his very clean K75RT and Peter S made a Charlie Chaplain, completely soundless, entry on his e bike.

An immaculate '75 curry R75/6 a smouldering, black Mystic R100 and Ross' great, silverback R100RS made a perfect backdrop to a throbbing garage of tuning and fettling. Thanks to all who participated and gave of their skills to keep the brand humming.

John :P

Great turn-out to the Tuning Day on Saturday... Obviously members were over the covid lock-down and needed to get out and tinker or be tinkered on... :lol:

There's gotta be some folks who are grateful to be members of the BMW MCC WA. More than a few pennies were saved. The collection of ideas, knowledge and camaraderie makes for a fun and fruitful day fiddling with BMW motorcycles. I do really enjoy it.

It was a pleasure to assist with prepping Ariel's 'La Boganette', knowing that that's what we, as members, do when the going gets rough. I hope that our efforts, in some small way, help his family move along the path to closure.

I was lucky enough to be chauffeured to the Tuning Day in theAPe's R100 RT Sidecar. With appropriate hearing protection, it proved to be quite an enjoyable ride. I gotta say that it is quite spritely for a big hunk of metal, and pretty comfortable and pleasant at cruise speed. We missed (or cunningly avoided) the rain in both directions :P

A couple of issues were uncovered and discussed. Small jobs for AP during the week...

Enjoy this fore and aft view from the beast... I certainly did 8)
