GPS said turn here, as I turned I saw a very narrow gravel road. Still in the turn I stop short, put my right foot down in a very soft gravel shoulder grading away and slowly . . . I . . . went . . . over.

Taken a week ago on the way to RA in NC.. Blue Ridge Parkway natch..

See: http://www.eilenberger.net/R1200R_Roadster/R1200Rindex.htm for how I bought my first new bike in 30 years and what I've been doing to it. Bought on 5/5/07 - have about 3,300 miles on it so far and haven't driven my car in almost a month :)

Hey tburk,

Attached image size is set small so it doesn't overwhelm the database. Images can take up a huge amount of storage space. If you direct link images into your post, they take up almost no space on the bmwmoa server.

You can make them as big as you like if you direct link them into your post. The images have to reside on a server somewhere, like flickr, smugmug, etc. Then you can use the command "[img ]the_url_of_your_image[/img ]" (spaces intentional so you can see the command).

Hope that helps,
fish

You're welcome, Tom. If you don't already have a web photo service, you might consider Google's free Picasa. http://picasa.google.com/ It's actually pretty good. If you want something much more powerful, you might consider Smugmug. Try opening a picasa account, uploading an image and take it from there.

You're welcome. You can get a $5 discount at smugmug.com by using my coupon: ZhWlkhimCnkeI. Of course, every other smugmug user has a coupon you can use too.

Nice. It's always a balance of riding vs. stopping for pics. I used to stop a lot more than I do now. Same thing with kids. I used to take a ton of videos and photos and now I play with them more than take pics of them playing. :dunno I've got a huge stack of hi8 and DV tapes that need to be processed and transferred to DVD as well as about a thousand photos. My new Mac Pro should show up in about a week, so I can get crackin'. Maybe once I start processing them I'll get back in the mood to shoot more.

Ride safe,

Steve,

You might love the bike, but you will love retirement a whole lot more. I'm 13 years into it, and it's the best job I ever had. I will admit that I have worked harder on retirement than when "working," but I work for me, and I work alone. No mistakes when one works alone. How good the pay might be is argueable, at best, but it's still the best job I ever had.

31 years? You earned the new bike.

Any repair work done before the painting? Any idea what kind of paint? Cost of paint job?

I have an '83 RT that needs some work on the upper faring. Eventually, I will get to it, the entire bike may need a new paint job by then.

That's me on the left trying to look skinny. I never made it out of town that day. The ABS wire on the front was rubbed by the rotor and caused some problems. Then when I finally found a hotel room, I was so distracted by everything, I "snapped" a muscle or tendon or something in my calf trying to put the bike on the center stand. Had to walk with a cane for 2 weeks. I flew 1,000 miles to get my new baby and rode her home. I've had a few problems with the bike that have mostly been fixed, but it's still my all time favorite bike. Well... I just bought a 1972 Toaster Tank R50/5, so we'll see.

Jeff,

Fine looking machine...but I'm biased. It is nearly exactly the same as mine. I don't have, yet, the aux lights, and I have mirrors added to the handle bars. Although I re-built the seat myself, it is much like yours in conformation.

I still have the stock wind screen.

I am quite pleased with mine.

Yes the seat is a Sargent. I replaced the stock heated seats with Sargents before I sat on the bike. It would be nice to order the RT without seats but that was not possible.

Thanks, I am kind of a freak when it comes to my garage. I did the floor about 2 months ago with 2 part epoxy paint, the painting was the EZ part, it took me two days to get everything out of the garage and get the floor prepped to take the paint. Of course the real difficult part was explaining to my SO why she could not park her Lexus in the garage for 7 days. It came out nice and it seems to hold up well.
After many years of having more tools than room for them I sprung for one of the biggest Sears makes. Friend of mine is a Pro and has some Snap-on boxes that make this look like plastic, but for a home garage it is all I will ever need. I do have my share of Snap-on tools in there however. I love their stuff the prices will make your eye water though.

This is my 2005 RT with some Aussie gum trees in the background.
The mods I've added are:
Suburban bar risers
Sargent seats
Motolights
Hyperlights
Foam grips
'Connect2' Ipod adaptor
Migsel mount for Zumo
Touratech head protectors
Elf highway pegs

No problems so far - I love it!

Hi all :D

I'm on my second Hexhead -

About a month ago I traded in this one, purchased new two years ago:

http://BobFV1.smugmug.com/photos/74491443_fRN6Z-L.jpg

For this one. I'm farkling it now - so far it has powder coated rims and head covers, Z-Technik giganto windscreen. It also has pretty much everything BMW puts on these bikes at the factory. I love it - real happy to be back on an RT (had on 1150). Rode it home from ABQ a few weeks ago - great road bike!

I am new in here. I have been hanging around the F twin threads for a year and half with an F800S, and I learned to drive on my Dad's 1968 R50/2 which I drove until 1990. When Dad told me to shelve it or buy another daily rider, I sold it.

Now I have this one and I like it quite a bit:

Definitely has a unique sound to it and most certainy increased the horse power. It is the same pipe BMW Atlanta and California use in the endurance races therefore it really isnt intended for street use. I believe they are what Remus refers to as "one off's" for race teams.

Hey Scottgp, your Remus got my attention too.
Looks like a straight exhaust with very little baffles.
I bet its loud, good in a way, but in my old age I prefer to go stealth and I rarely go over 60 (in corners ;) ).

MOTOGP
01-06-2009, 02:42 AM
You know, it really isnt that loud if your not in the throttle too heavily. Its been a great bike over the past 2 years that I have owned it however as I get older, I am looking for something with a little more practicle use to it. I am looking to sell the R1200S and possibly pick up a Yamaha FJR1300 or a BMW R1200GS. Most of my venturing is on pavement therefore I am leaning towards the Yamaha a bit more unless someone can steer me towards the BMW. I have not test ridden either of my selections, that is next..............

Though I do love the bagpipes, there is nothing like the purr of two RTs riding next to each other in perfect harmony:) However, listening to the bagpipes over the headset while you're riding is close to that perfect symphony of open road, humming engine, and sweet spot out of the wind. Oh...for this rain to end I would gladly give my kingdom.

PS - If you're interested, the whole trip is here: http://web.me.com/securus/From_here_to_there/Blog/Blog.html

Keep your shiny side up!

Lumpycam, I like your photographic technique. Working for a magazine? If not, maybe you should.

Me on my bike in about 78 degrees F, laughing at a joke, during a 1.5 hour wait to cross back into the US. It was a 285 mile run-in to Mexico's Puerto Pe??asco to sit at the beach/soak in the spa/eat out a few meals/stay overnight, and this was the start of the 250 mile run home the next day on AZ's curvaceous 85. The weather was gorgeous. The trip was pure fun!

Canon 5D mk1 with 50mm ãÆ1.4. I'm shooting more now (http://dailyrider.blogspot.com/) with a small Canon IXUS so it fits in my pocket when i don't have a tank bag.

New Member, first BMW. Fantastic bike. Can't stay off the thing. Gonna check out every back road in Florida. Lotsa oranges and cows. Love the smell of fresh...uh, pastures in the morning.

Beautiful bike, David. I agree on the "perfect bike" sentiment. Lots of pastures east and south, down near the Lake, but the roads tend to be straight and flat. With a few exceptions, most of the fun roads seem to be north of I-4. I think I rode most of them yesterday.

I just noticed the shrouds on your instrument cluster -- is that stock, or an option? I usually don't have trouble reading the speedo or tach, but the computer display is hard to read because of reflections. I took some "paint protector" film and buffed it a little with a scotchbrite pad and cut a piece to fit over the display, and that helps a little, but those shades would help.

Thanks for the comments guys. Ray the shroud is from the K1200GT. Still some glare on the speedo at times tho. Your right about lots of straight roads down here. But I am finding some bent ones too.

That what my R1200S looked like after a round trip between Phoenix to Mexico's Rocky Point. First, an S1000 spritz, then a light touch with a sponge here and there and a hose off, then microfiber dry off, and the best for last, Can-Do spray-on, wipe off, Carnuba wax, makes that plastic glow with shine. Weeks and a few local rides later, it still looks clean.

Here's my pride...although I've only had her for less than two weeks, I've been able to put a few miles (1,150) on her. Can't wait for the cross-country trip in late July. I love this bike...

Here's my new-to-me 2008 GS:



http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/4594/pict0305.jpg

It was an "executive demo" with only 2300 miles...Package 1, ABS and cast wheels. What a great bike! I can't believe the improvements made in the engine and transmission compared to my '99RT.

I've already added winglets from the GS Adventure as well as a GS Adventure seat for a bit more seated leg room. On the way is a tank bag, crash bars, Vario cases and a few other doo-dads.

Hello Everyone. I finally got my new GSA last Saturday and in keeping with the tradition here, I am posting my first picture tonight. Sorry it is not anything exciting as far as the picture goes. I went with the premium package, ESA and such. The bike has the BMW panniers and top box. I have my Zumo 550 mounted on it as well as the XM antenna. In addition to the stock seat, I purchased the low seat from a GS and the extra low seat from the R model (hope I have that right). So I have three seats. Being inseam challenged, the extra low seat fits me best (pretty much flat footed). The low GS seat is fine as long as I only want to be on my toes. The stock seat, well, then we're talking the need for a ladder.

I've only got about 370 miles on it as of tonight. I absolutely love it so far. And it feels great to finally actually have my first Beemer in the garage. Can't wait to take on its first little trip in July.

I have been a member of MOA since last fall and really enjoy reading the forums each day. Met Mandy this last weekend at Gateway BMW in St. Louis during the open house while I was picking up my new bike. Hope to get to meet some you in the future.
