    Very nice! Will you be riding down to the Boxerworks Forum Rally?

    Hi Veg, No, I have a brother living in the pan handle. Figure a decent length of a trip is in store before winter sets in.

    Isamemon, I left the air pulse on and just threw in a wooden peg on each of the air ends of the lines. Ran it by Marvin at Holt BMW and saw no problem with it. Thanks again for the heads up. H

    Hi my name's Gail, I am visiting from the K bike section.
    I took this picture at the open house, but I don't know the model.
    Please help. I will be glad to return the favor if you need a K bike identified.

    Looks like a R65LS, but they had black pipes and white wheels, didn't they?

    See Phil Hawksley's site for some pictures:

    http://www.bmbikes.co.uk/bmwphotos.htm

    Phil's site shows the LS with the red/black colors as suggested. This bike Gail pictured does have the small cockpit fairing which suggests it's an LS.

    This page http://www.nebcom.com/noemi/moto/r65lsfaq.html says that the LS came in two colors, red and silver, and had the distinctive wedge fairing. Possibly the black mufflers have been changed out. So maybe this is an R65LS.

    Gail,

    That is an R65LS, somewhere between '81-'84 (my wife has one). The silver ones had silver wheels, the red ones had white wheels. The exhausts were normally black. The fairing was designed by Hans Muth, the man responsible for the looks of the classic R90S and R100RS models, and also the original Suzuki Katana.

    Hope that helped,
    Bob

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

    stirring the soul

    There's something about taking the airhead out for some "beemer therapy" on an early morning ride; it just sort of stirs the soul.
