    Thanks to all for your comments. I'm a long time McMaster-Carr customer and would have no problem ordering from them, but I had hoped to save the time to inventory every fastener. I'm aware of the...

    Thanks to everyone! Great responses. I did some research, and sat on an R100RS. I was hoping an earlier one would have a more comfortable riding position than my (ex) R1150RS, but it doesn't. I'm...

    Airhead RS comments?

    I'm considering buying an early 80s R100RS. Are there any weaknesses or problems specific to this model/vintage that I should look for?

    Thanks for any advice!

    See the thread in the Clubhouse with this title. There's only one independent shop in MA: Duncan's Beemers in Maynard. A fair distance from the Cape.

    Totally agree. They appealed to geeks like me who enjoyed tinkering with the car as much as driving it. Going to school in Maine, they were one of the few cars that would start at 20 below. And they...

    Mini thread hijack --- only slightly apologetic!

    Those latte-sippers had no idea what a *real* SAAB was. As an early 60s college kid, I had a '58 SAAB 93B, with the 750cc, 3 cylinder, overhead fanshaft, 2-stroke engine. The ignition key back then...

    If it's old enough to have one, no one understands what the fit-all BMW key is. The only unique lock on my '64 R-27 was the fork lock. Anyone could start it with any BMW 'key'.

    I don't flash, but will give a palm-down to 'spirited' riders.

    Truckers seem to have an affinity for riders (at least the riders with some common sense). I've had a number of 'cool-it' hand flaps...

    I doubt the absence of Stabil or the presence of ethanol had any effect. Most common cause of burnt exhaust valves (in my experience) is tight valve lash or lean mixture.

    You and Voni are not alone, Paul. My '04 R1150RS is my all time favorite. I bought it 18 months ago with bar-backs, and thought my 65 year old 6'3" frame could use lowered pegs. Put them on, then...
