    Sorry but that opposes what a BMW is all about, long term reliability.

    If you wanted something faster, why not get a FJR1300 or a R1 or Busa?

    Absolutely.

    As an exercise fine, but I see no point to it otherwise. I'd just get something faster in the first place if that was the purpose.

    Not if you are running any boost. Life is a function of stress. Its why F1 engines do not last.

    Does there need to be a point to everything ? Maybe he just enjoyed the project as much as...or perhaps even more than,.. the result ?

    My point is ?..it is his property to do with as he chooses , and [I'm assuming here] ?...he found some pleasure in doing it

    " I'd just get something faster in the first place if that was the purpose."

    That's your way...his way is just different. Some of our greatest inventions came from some man or woman saying to themselves...what-if ?

    Personally I admire his patience & ingenuity...

    Hey, guys, this forum area is mostly about showing pictures...some discussion (aka Free Speech) but mostly pictures. We know motorcycling in whatever form is a personal choice, so let's just leave it that way! Thanks...

    That would be great!

    Beautiful bike. Beautiful scenery. Fun roads. Sounds like heaven to me.

    There are two roads in life; the twisty one is vastly more fun.

    Thanks! The tank was on the bike when I bought it and I've no clue who or why the switch was made. The side panels suggest it was toaster-assuming they're original. Crash damage? Rust? Maybe someone just didn't like the toaster?

    At any event I think it looks fine too, plus I like having the extra capacity.

    This was the first short tour I took with the old girl. She did fine.

    Airhead heaven indeed. The Oregon Airmarshal puts the event on every year in early September. I first learned about it in the Airmail. Great time and wonderful riding.
