2000 BMW R850R


Excellent staging post between a learner bike and a beast bike


No mechanical failures.

Needed a new battery.

Lots of new tires and brake pads.

General Comments:

Like driving a train.

Stable over bumps and predictable round corners.

Great brakes.

Comfy riding position.

A heavy bike to put on a center stand.

Good fuel economy, even when thrashed around the city.

Heavy crosswinds nearly blew me into the ditch a few times.

High quality workmanship throughout.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
