    Don't waste your time trying to fold it, just stuff it back into the bag. And don't forget NOT to pack it wet or damp if it's to be stored for any length of time.

    Perfect Fit

    I've only had 2 beemers, '77 R75 and my '83 RS. The RS is my favorite and the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden, with the 3/4 seat. Fits me like a glove.

    Made a home made 4 way circuit for my RS 28 years ago. Nothing fancy and not hard to do. I've probably used it more than I've used my horn.
