Gonna see a man about a horse tomorrow… Like the one we rode in Germany-Austria-Switzerland-Italy-Austria-Germany back in ’98. Exactly like it. Except for a few extra cc’s.
Oops, can’t leave out Lichtenstein!
UPDATE: Back to the Future!
Edelweiss called and they want their 1998 BMW back…
Hard to believe nobody wanted this old jewel. Perhaps it’s the age, perhaps it’s the obsolescence, perhaps it’s just too boring, perhaps it was priced too high – but it’s less than
half one third of the original cost from sixteen years ago – and it’s all that I wanted: no damn GPS, no damn hypervelocity, no built-in iPad, no expensive swoopy plastic to bash or remove whenever a bit of work is required, no dings-dents-or-scratches – just great weight-to-torque ratio, easy to work on, luggage for two-up riding, heated grips, extra smidge of power that the R850R lacked, and the less-complicated less prone to error ABS that later models didn’t enjoy… Can’t wait for summer in the CA Alps.
