    Fortunatley I have a great sense of humor.
    I've already taken him for a couple short rides on the local two lane roads. He loves wearing his new full face helmet and cruising along. He especilly enjoys it when you snap the hack up into the air and keep it up for a while. I know if I was a kid that would be the coolest thing ever. Hopefully she will ease up soon and not be so protective. Here's a picture that she actually took and all she said was, " Be careful."

    I'm lost. I've gone to find myself. If I get back before I return. Please ask me to wait.

    your photos need to be in jpeg form or the like, and about 300x225 I think.
    look in the FAQ

    My '88 R100RS

    I've had her for roughly a month. 34,000 miles and picked her up for $2,800. Couldn't pass her up. The smoothest bike I have ever rode. Almost put a 1,000 miles on her just bumping around the roads of WV. Riding to Oklahoma next month.

    Looks like a nice bike
    I thought the RS had more of a fairing up front
    will you be doing your own wrenching on it
    if so
    make sure you lube your splines and
    a slight suggestion...you might want to pull off your air pollution stuff, it has been known to warp heads
    snobum has a nice article on this, how to do it, and the parts you need
    very simple to do.Simple to put back, cost about $10. Do it the next time you change your air filter. YOu will not have to rejet anything, and local cops and inspectors dont know what supposed to be on the bike or not.
    And the bike will look cleaner wihtout the extra hoses etc. just a thought

    Awesome, Thanks for the insight Isamemon.
    Actually the fairing wasn't with the bike which I don't mind. I like the look of the naked bike more so than the factory fairing. My own opinion, the fairing makes me think of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. ha

    Thanks again. Time t go ride the BMX. h

    I brought this little diamond in the rough home tonight.

    She's a 1952 R51/3 and has been in a garage since 1968.

    If you need me I'll be in the workshop...

    Eye of the Beholder

    Got my lovely conversion back from restoration at Bench Mark Works this spring. Cosmetics are the last thing on my list since I wanted to ride it and I will need to win a lottery or two to pay for the needed upgrades. So there I was with a friend in the garage admiring my gorgeous bike with 40 years of nicks, dents, gouges etc. The neighbour kid (20ish) drove in and I couldn't resist telling him to come and see my beautiful bike. The look on his face was priceless. He was horrified. Finally I said, "William just say it's beautiful." which he did in a strangled voice then fled,--undoubtedly to call the guys in white coats to come and take me away, haha.

    Okay, so it's got a little road dust on it. When you mention to the young neighbor you're thinking of riding it to Tierra del Fuego, do you suppose he'll faint?

    Keep on rollin'

    I just went on my first substantial trip yesterday. I wrote about it and posted a bunch of pictures in this thread: http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthre...242#post368242

    As a longtime airhead owner, it pleases me to see so many new riders gathering around our old bikes. Simpla Fi!

    Is there any hope for the younger generation? It is so sad!

    Picture of me that last time I was in Tierra del Fuego--leaving Ushuaia on the icebreaker.
