This year, Bert Baker tells me that he has decided to do things a little bit differently. Instead of hoping to meet with you at his very busy Baker Drivetrain booth in big rallies, Bert is going to your own place. Almost… Bert is embarking on a National Seminar Tour stopping at V-Twin dealerships near the place where you live or work, giving you a rare opportunity to spend time with him (he is a quite funny guy), asking him the trickiest transmissions questions one can ask.
At each Dealer stop Bert will be providing a free drivetrain performance seminar open to the public that will cover the latest products now available from Baker, including the DD6 and DD7 transmissions as well as the F5R and F6R reverse systems. Along with the seminar, to anyone interested, Bert will be offering reverse demos with his own reverse transmission demonstration bike. (ask him to do a reverse burnout, but don’t tell him who suggested!)
I can’t list here all the dates. But the tour starts this weekend in Florida (for evident reason, no booth this year at the Daytona International Speedway), then will go to the west coast. Dealers can contact Baker Drivetrain at 877-640-2004 to schedule a date with Bert. Public can contact their dealer to organize such a seminar. Pick your date after the jump.
During Daytona Bike Week.
