This is Joe Groeger in 1999 scoping out the condition of the large bearing from the rear-end of a 1966 BMW R69S. It’s an example of the type of things that used to happen on Saturday mornings at Groeger Special Tooling. (He found indications of pitting on the race – the bearing was replaced).

Joe turned 95 in March of 2015. He still meets with a group at Groeger Special Tooling in Redwood City about 10 AM on Saturday mornings. They leave for brunch in Redwood City around 10:30.

Tom and Carol Weiss put together another great outing at the 22nd Cal Coast Campout & BBQ. About 50 campers enjoyed perfect weather, a worry given the rain before (and after) the event. We even had a line-up for the old bikes Sunday morning, something that had not been done the last year or two.

Dick says he could never bond with the ’10 Concours that replaced his wing. Too top heavy, for one thing. So out with the not-so-old and in with the brand new ’11 R1200RT with just over 200 miles on the odometer. It’s probably still on its first tank of gas.

Radio, ESA, heated saddle and grips, cruise control… lots of touring goodies.
