I picked this bike up 60 miles away. I could easily ride it 10k miles and sell it for 50% more than I paid. That's how good of a deal I got. Yeah, carmudgeons must not allow remote referrers.
Damn. That IS a screamin' deal alright.

I'll have to put my pic on my Bimmerfest album then....

I can has an oldie?

Howdy, Beemers. Good news locally and good luck to them--a fellow is opening a BMW dealer in Chattanooga. The paper quoted "more than 500" BMW owners in the area. Uhh... I know one other one besides me.

Without further doo: 1988 K75S, 101k miles. 740cc FI triple.

Latest maintenance was rebuilt injectors ($65 / set), fluid changes. No major problems beyond my intermittent tach.

When I think "Gixxer 1K", I think, "needs more power."

Here's my current bike.....05 1200GS. It has been feeling pretty lonely though since I picked up my ZHP a few months ago....



A pic from a trip to Colo. a few years ago...



And a couple of old Airheads I had before the GS.....

86 R80RT



84 R65



And the bike that I take my screen name from.....75 Maico 250. German made and they were well known for their excellent handling. Sound familiar?



The Maico with my old 72 2002. These two pics are from about 35 years ago, I was in to German bikes and cars and now after a break of 20 years I once again find myself owning a couple Germans.



And finally I may as well include a shot of my latest German....

OK, guess my Kawasaki was a closer call to a Beemer than I thought...

Yesterday closed the deal on this gorgeous 2004 R1150-GS. Looking forward to exploring some roads that my Kawasaki could never go on...
