Help needed (maybe) in Kingsport, TN
My son will be competing in the 2015 Iron Butt which has a checkpoint at Meadowview Conference Resort & Convention Center, Kingsport, Tennessee
I hope all will be well when he arrives, but if he needs something done to the bike I'd like to have a pre-arranged place for him to do the
The really premium deal would be if someone has a workspace with a lift and tools and is not too far from the motel. Also local knowledge of motorcycle shops, auto parts and hardware stores will be a big help.
He's riding a 1994 BMW R1100RS so knowledge of sources of BMW specific items may be handy.
He will arrive on Sunday the July 5th probably in late the afternoon and will have to go into scoring soon after. He would like to get everything that needs doing done by late evening. At this checkpoint he has no scheduled work except to check the tires and oil.
I can't be there but will be available by phone in case there are questions
If you need more info to decide if you want to participate please ask here or email me at ccoonsml at rconnect.com.

The rally schedule is here:
If you are interested in what IB machines look like, the hotel parking lot will have lots of them to look at that Sunday night. Note that a
rider in the event will be under extreme pressure to get scored, do things to his bike and get some rest and may or may not have time for casual questions. NEVER touch one of the bikes without asking.
DR350 It'll get you there
