    Riding "Bernadette" my red headed mistress down in Mexico this past Febuary. I think I was near Los Carlos on the western side near the Sea of Cortez.

    Nice Richard! How'd you manage that?

    Oh, welcome. And BTW, I said good-bye to the GT.

    She's an '88. From all the model designations, "T" seems to fit except that it has not top case, just the side luggage. Does this bare out to anyone?

    Not a T

    White Bike is a Low Seat Model. The T was only produced in 86 and 87, the top box was optional on T models as were the bags, most people just bought them that way. The T was for Touring so you got the bags.
    T model had a touring seat unlike the one pictured. The windshield is a stock windshield that came on the T. Another differentiating factor is the handle bars. S bars were short, C bars were a little taller and T bars were way tall allowing you to sit up straight and still reach the bars.
    Not to pick at nits but the white bike in the picture was BMWs response to the complaint that their bikes were too tall.
    If I remember correctly this bike had a chrome exhaust heat shield, I'd like to get my hands on one of those.
    The rack and back rest looks like a Reynolds after-market piece.
    I've had three T models, still have two, I know them well.

    All doc I got from the dealership said '88? but from all outward appearances it would be a "T" model?

    Here's a pix of my '92. Moved down from Ma. after I bought it. Can't drive it July thru Sept.! too friggin hot down here! (not bad when moving fast...feels like a 1600W blow drier in the face though!). Sitting in traffic with the cooling fan on and 98deg sun is a killer! ( I don't like to ride w/o my driving jacket, and I refuse to ride w/o a helmet!)....Ya, I know, all you N.E. and other northern climate riders are saying after this winter...STOP YER WHINING!...sucks to be me!
    Anyhow, anybody got any tricks to take the fairing off...any links w/ pix, before I start removing fasteners at random?...gotta replace the fan!...Got a pretty good deal on a clean used on at beemerboneyard.com (thought I'd throw them a plug!)
