I don't think airheads and city riding really work, out bush makes a whole lot more sense.

I was real lucky with that hole. If I hadn't stopped to check my load after being bucked off the seat by the previous hole, I woulda been in orbit. The exit to that hole in the pic was at least 1 foot deep @ 45 degrees.
Then of course there was the 5 mile stretch of sand. 50 mph, 3rd gear. couldn't back off 'cause it would start to wallow big time. Trying to stay in one wheeltrack out of several was difficult. I cursed every time one of the bikes ahead crossed my wheeltrack, talk about shittin' bricks.

What are em crashbars?



What are these crash bars?

Are they effective in anything but a tip over?

How are they removed for doing valve work etc...?

Yeah! Funny that. He had just a wee tip over as we were heading from Nymagee pub to the Nymagee racetrack campspot a couple of days before. A very slow fall over on the left hand side (shoulda had a RS ) and it busted his pannier clean off.
What a piece of shit!!! Shame BMW! The pannier not only broke off, it could not be mounted back on the bike and had to be strapped up on top of everything else.
The fall also caused the pannier to bend and kink the sub frame (frame?)
The whole frame and pannier was replaced under insurance.
Piece of shit.
Any questions why I ride an RS?

At the same time, it was the wildest, muddiest, shittiest raining dash across from Mt.Hope pub to Nymagee. There must have been a big wet cloud sitting right on top of us for the 45? k section of dirt. Out of control, couldn't see shit.
Good fun but!

Most excellent! Love the old RS! Also, the R75/5 with knobbies rocks! If I showed a set of knobbies to my R75 I think she would freak out! I kinda baby her after the resto.

Yes, but there may be a bit of fiddling to get clearance around the front of the seat and side covers. I had an 32 litre one (not as big as the one pictured) on my 80/7 and had to fit spacers to the top of the fork springs to compensate for the added weight of the fuel.
