Timeless reliable classic
Small leak at the transmission and condenser. That's it.
This bike was made for the shade tree mechanic. It's so easy to work on and runs just great. It's also a timeless classic that would be hard to lose money on.
It was my first bike and I rarely ride it because of my R1200C, I still can't let it go. It's simply a wonderful machine that I am hard pressed to find fault with.
Whenever I thought of BMW motorcycles, this bike was the one I pictured and still do.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
