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.

The storm passed and the skies cleared in time for Darryl’s 12th Surf City Tech Day. I didn’t see a lot of tech going on, but the food and company were sure great.

Joe turns 92 this week. In celebration the Saturday brunch group was larger than usual. Not pictured are, Jim Houts, Alan Huntzinger, Bill Grass (w/Clinton) and the photographer (Chris Weld).

Five left the shop after brunch this early March day for a romp in the Santa Cruz Mtns; Richman, Zunkel, Steiner, Grass and Weld. Weld knocked down 170 + miles, house to house: the longest post breakfast ride on record. Joe Steiner was mounted on his brand new V-Strom. What a great way to break both in.

An unusual group of Saturday riders. Dick, Rob, and Chris. The unusual part is the addition of Rob. This is the first time I can remember that he joined the Saturday group on a Saturday. Picture from Dick.
