Yes.
A great bike.
Lusted after the orange R 90 S, ended up w/R 100 RT ('81), odometer broke at 189k+ and rode it for years that way.
Sold it dopeslap dopeslap in '04 (for @75% of what I bought it for)
Those dang airheads, had R 50. R 75, R 100, made an Airhead out of me.....


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

"It has 298,000 miles. (NOT a misprint) However, it runs and drives perfect and has been freakishly maintained with all service records since it was new. "

DAMN!

If that doesn't get your blood flowing, you are dead!

Classic


Wish I had a bigger garage because it would be a shame to park that bike out in the elements year round. That's my excuse for not snapping it up right now and I'm sticking to it...

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.

In the view of the instrument panel you can see a second orange R90S. Wish Seattle wasn't so far away.

I've found the Seattle area to be a nest of motorcycle hoarders. I'd be more than happy to go take a look at it for you...

Funny, as beautiful as that bike is, I don't want one again. For a long time I wanted a late model R100 RS. But, now it's an R1200 RS, especially the version that comes without the fufu electronic suspension.

Thanks for the offer, Dennis. There are a couple problems with it besides distance. I'd like an airhead for local rides but this one is too nice to ride. Almost needs to be locked away. Also need to keep peace in the family and one bike seems to be my limit...at least that I'll push.

You're right about the Seattle area, seems all the really nice old bikes migrate up there.
