    Sweet. Love the color too, must take very good care of it.
    Thanks for the compliments gentlemen.

    I have owned the bike since it came out of the crate, but I have painted it a few times over the last 3.9 decades. It was originally silber with blue stripes. Then it turned Colorado Beige (Mercedes Benz color) and it was a Kriegsmarine Gray until March 2011. Living within a mile of the Pacific Ocean has returned it's shiny bits to a slightly rusted pall since the re-paint. Wear and tear kinda comes with riding it...

    It had a Windjammer on it for a few year since I was expected to run one as a Vetter employee, and it had a bikini on it for a while, but I think I like the way it is now best.

    Yakked mit a Uralist at the gas station today. He provided the delay factor, telling about his first great adventure getting it stuck in sand last weekend. He was glad for the shovel!

    Stop!

    You guys really MUST stop posting all this great Moto-Porn!

    Geez! I'm trying to get a '78 R100RS (MS) back together in the garage, and these pictures are VERY distracting!

    (Seriously, BEAUTIFUL bikes, guys, and Bravo Zulu!)

    Good luck, it's all love man!

    Once bitten by the airhead bug, you might as well call a shrink...or use the money to support your new found addiction. Personally, if your here on this site asking for advice well...hehe good luck.... it's like asking a hooker for marital advice, (wait, putting on my flack jacket) ..just saying.
    Look at me, I've got two R60/6s, one I'm contemplating doing major surgery on, upping it too a 75/6. Problem is I'm getting laid off this Friday the 28th, yet my mind is not on looking for a job but looking for jugs, heads, camshaft and carbs....so let me ask you? Are you ready to join us?
    Thanks fellow airheads!
    O by the way....Any one knows a person/place looking for a pilot with 6000+hrs ATP a couple of types, in the Houston area?
    Thanks, now back to my bikes.

    Glen,

    Sounds like you are taking it pretty well, but wanted to say that I am sorry to hear you are getting laid off. That sucks...

    Thank you, in reality it hurts, got some leads so hopefully soon, I've got a few weeks before the $$$ gets critical. Thank you for the kind words. So in reality my addiction (bikes) are helping me in a way by distraction of the mind....and of course the wife and two kids.
