    I may just keep both.I also have a '78 R80/7 and a 1977 Triumph Bonneville.The problem is you can only ride one ata time.When a bike sits unused that is no good.

    I guess I shouldn't complain too much.I know BMW parts are not cheap. The point I'm trying to make is that approximately one year ago the part was $9.98,now it is $39.98.

    High price of some parts.

    According to the Max BMW parts fiche, a mirror base for an RS is $40.Last year I believe the price was $10.What the heck is going on?
