Yup--its an adventure bike and has won some distance awards.Although it's its design looks a tad awkward it'll probably run circles around any harley.. Lol. I've always been curios about the BMW bikes. They do have a solid rep and following. Would that be classified as an adventure bike with some off road capability?
I was intrigued with the OD green tank.Well--its not all black.
Enjoy--it looks to be nice and clean.
Of courseWe expect a full review.

Cheaper to ship it then fly out and hotel stays back home BUT if it was summer I would have done that.Ridin' it home?
I've been interested in a local RT for awhile but this just happened to fall in my lap. A bud of mine that has daughters on opposite coasts (Cali and Fl.) and rides back and forth visiting them (he's retired also) is in Cali visiting this one and posted it on another site I visit. He's leaving on Thurs. to go visit his other daughter in Fl.Yup--its an adventure bike and has won some distance awards.
They are cool motorbikes.
I'm going to have to brush up on my assholedness....I hear BMW owners are even worse than I'm used to being.Be careful when riding past any Starbucks, I hear BMWs will spontaneously turn into those parking lots.
I've been checking fortunately owning Harley's has taught me to expect ridiculous prices.Congrats on your new to you bike. Remember what BMW stands for "Bring My Wallet"
sounds a little childish but ok.I have a Cousin that rides BMW's, I dont talk to him.......
I love the utilitarianism of the design...It has 54K on it....I'll take heed of that...thanksBMW makes a good motorcycle but not a good looking motorcycle.
They are very dependable as long and they are taken care of.
If this bike has 40k or more miles on it, take care of the drive shaft, that is one of the weaknesses of BMW's and a very expensive fix.
I gotta tell ya Captn.....when I first starting reading your comments I didn't think you had a clue....lately you've made some comments that actually sound like you know what you're talking about....well done.Airheads last longer cuz the head is always in the airstream. Drain the oil at the driveshaft and inspect it like any other oil. Don't do wheelies in 2nd and you will be fine. I wouldn't worry about a paltry 54,000 on an airhead. Go to a rally and check milages. Yours is just broken in.
I don't think it's any worse than other bikes with mid pegs but I can always stretch my legs out on that crash bar....I think. :laugh:I hope you enjoy it, and I have a question...
How tall can you be and still fold your legs in behind that motor for long stretches of time?
