    Except for those S1000RR riders. And many of the R1200/F800/F650/F700GS riders.

    Me - I buy K75s and BMW hasn't directly benefitted from selling one of those since 1995 or maybe 1996 with a leftover or two. But they do get me with parts sales. Except K75s almost never need parts.

    I owned no. 30 of the US imports for 13-yrs. It took me a long time to accept the vibration in the more advanced 99 R11RS.

    K75 parts? A bulb or two, perhaps. I did replace the shock and fork springs at 20K and installed a Corbin Seat which was fantastic.

    They're for riding? I thought they were for gardening.

    I like women with guns, and think the profile portraits are all pretty nice. Definitely, I wouldn't "mess" with any of them... but then again, I don't go around "messing" with people as a matter of course.

    Just perusing this thread, there are a few interesting comments... I'll skip commenting on some of them but will add that I am a "used" BMW buyer myself. With certainly thousands (hundreds of thousands? millions?) of used, reliable bikes on the market... why buy new?

    A girl named shooter

    I met a girl in the swamps near Sumter, SC in 1984. Later on, I learned that her name was "Shooter". She was in the duck blind near the small island I was shooting from. I counted her shots and her ducks. She shot 11 times and bagged 8 ducks. I followed her boat to Packs Landing. It turned out that her father owned the place and she had been shooting since she was 11 years old. That evening, I found out why they called her "Shooter". It had nothing to do with how well she handled her Remington 870. I woke up on the floor with the smell of her cooking me breakfast.

    Gentlemen, there are women out there who can shoot and do it well. I have had the privilege of knowing quite a few of them. I shot competitively in the Navy and was frequently beaten by a tiny nurse.

    I enjoyed the photos and will likely buy the book; thanks for posting.

    For those of you who might be interested in women who actually hunt, here is a very good article by National Geographic.
