I have that issue of CYCLE in my magazine archive (it also has a hop-up article for the Honda OHC 90).

The issue of CYCLE either the previous or following month had a road test of the new BMW R75/5.

The Goose out accelerates and has a higher top speed than the /5, for what it's worth.....

That's it- I'm buying a Guzzi. I've resisted long enough. Maybe a T3 or an Eldo, nice riding position and oh that sound

Here's my 850-T5


I'm headed up to Oregon to get it out of storage next week. It's going to lose the fairing, and get lightly cafe'd. Should be on the road again very soon...

Its not very fast (happy at about 60mph) but chugs along all day long, up, down, whatever. this is on top of the Stara Plana (old Balkans) about 50km from my place.

Oddly enough, the old yugo land is right next door, but none of these seem to have made it across the border. no one here has seen one before, & it always draws a crowd. I love touring on this, its just so much fun to ride. and that big straight pipe really echoes! :)

Good to see our colors over there!!!!

Saw this nice lemon with a big tank in Queensland a few weeks back.


I bought a V50 in the Channel Islands in the early 80's and rode around Europe, the Middle East and Nth Africa. What a sweet bike - it never let me down. Me with distant relos in Munich.

Holy cow, that is gorgeous... Did you re-chrome the tank prior to paint as well...?

Wow...
