Last bike R1100RT. 137,000 miles, time for a new one. This time I bought the R model which is closer to my old airhead that I still ride.

I lost 130 lbs and gained 20 verry usable HP.

This bike is BMW to the bone!

This weekend girlfriend and I took it from north western NY to Bradford PA. I have a Versys I ride to work. Its been sitting. Bike is 3 weeks old and has just over 3,000 miles on it. Parabellum windshield, BMW bags that are only on when I go away.



When; it was just a couple days old



At Whiteface mountain in Lake Placid NY last weekend.

Its the one with the taller windshield. The other one is an 11.


On the way to Lake Placid, I started out in Deposit NY and rode route 10 from one end to the other . 159 miles of twisty roads, some in the Catskills some in the Adirondacks. The last 20 miles I really tore it up.
This bike handles and has all the balls I need.


Sport tour all the way. I miss the electric windshield and a couple other things, but I love the weight loss.
