My first BMW was a 1982 R65LS, it wasn't long (about 2 years) when I longed for a bigger engine sooo... It became an R100/65/90LS/RS/90S with flat side Mikuni's blue wheels and windshield but the original Henna paint. cost me lots of $$$$ but won 3 awards for Sport modified, very fast but a turtle compared to an oilhead so an R1100RS was next then an R1150RT and Now a R1200CLC Gotta love those Beemers!
'82, bought it new, still runs great @155,000+.
Well the name came from the ex-service tech. He put in "wuzred" as the color of my bike so when I paid the bill it would print it out on the receipt.
I liked it and the rest is history.
The red-to-orange-to-silver IS a unique look, I just got tired of it too.

Coming along great. Keep up the good work.
