Meetings

When and Where we Meet

Everyone is welcome! (You don’t have to own a BMW motorcycle, just be interested!)

Our club meets on the second Thursday  of each month at 7 pm (except as noted), at the Spaghetti Western Cafe, 1608 Shepherd Drive, Houston, TX 77007. This is a few blocks south of I-10 on Shepherd Dr. Meetings are announced on this website, on our Calendar, and through our email Newsletter.

The meetings start at 7 pm in the back “party room”. Many people begin arriving by 5pm to to enjoy dinner and socialize. Sometimes it’s almost “standing room only” so come early to get a good table. There are usually a number of people who ride their motorcycles, so every meeting is a “show and tell”.

  • Parking is available in the lot behind the restaurant on Eigel Street. If the restaurant’s lot is full, additional parking is available directly across the street in an office-building lot (look for sign). People who ride usually park their bikes on the apron in front of the restaurant; but be careful of the steep slope and the busy traffic on Shepherd!

Tech Days

Tech days happen twice a year – in the Spring and Fall – rain or shine. Lunch is provided by the club. This is an opportunity to get some maintenance done on your bike with some expert assistance available. Common tasks that many people do are bleeding brakes, changing tires, adjusting valves, syncing carbs, adding farkles (and admiring other peoples’ farkles), changing rear drive fluid, and tuning their turboencabulators. (If you don’t know what that is, see video on the Turbo Encabulator).

Just bring your tools and parts. Other members with years of experience of working on BMWs will be there to help you. We ask that you clean up after yourself, take your leftover parts and fluids home, and if you borrow any tools DON’T put them back – just leave them out on the bench. Even if you don’t have any work to do you can come and learn and socialize.

Note that Tech Days are not open to the general public – just club members and close friends.
