If there is anyone here in Los Angeles, CA or nearby I am curious if I could ask your advice.
I am looking at purchasing my first BMW vintage /5 airhead and I really havnt had any experience riding any of them, be it an r60, 75 or r90.
I am curious as to everyones thoughts on R60 for LA traffic (both on and off freeway) and if you think it would perform well enough?
I'm looking at purchasing an R60 from someone in New Mexico but i'm a bit hesitant since it is a lot of money and without me being able to see it and ride it I have no way of knowing exactly if it would have enough power for the freeways.
I'm a pretty new rider so I'm not as much of a freeway driver at the moment (mostly surface streets) but i do have a feeling that I would eventually like to go on some longer trips on this bike.
Also I know this may be a long shot but is there any chance someone may let me test ride an R60, 75 or 90 so I can get a feel for the differences?
I can give you collateral for safety reasons/etc if that is something you would prefer as well.
I work here in L.A. at a big animation studio as an artist (i have a steady job) and can provide plenty of references.
If anyone can give even advice I would be so grateful.
Thanks so much,
