    I bought it in August '08 with 16,000 original miles. Previous owner had it since early '90s and bought it in South Carolina.

    Sorry Kev. You'll have to be "Billy no Mates" untill somebody comes up with an ST register. Buy Solo a beer when he's in London next month and I'm sure he'll let you post :D

    Prior to me it lived in CO, NM, and possibly AZ.

    Truly a contender for the if-i-could-only-have-one-bike title. :raabia

    I've been enjoying this thread - great to see these older machines and the tracking of their serial numbers. Has everyone ever thought of doing this for the R100GS and the PD, or are there too many out there to do this? I'd love to see where the sisters to my machine are ('94 R100GS). Jackd

    I'll add my name to the list.

    I've got a 1981 R80G/S. I'm the 5th owner. Purchased new by a local auto mechanic. Sold to somebody in Tucson. Then supposedly went to a BMW mechanic in the Denver area. Then sold to a guy who lived in Silverthorn CO who advertised it for sale on IBMWR. That's where I saw it and bought it back in 1999. When the local mechanic, original owner saw it he recognized it as his. To prove it he produced the original bill of sale w/ right VIN number. Small world, eh? That's where we tied the rest of the bikes ownership history together.

    Maybe I'll get unlazy and get a picture up here one day. I've added a PD tank, works shock, Jesse bags, Rick Meyer saddle (guaranteed no less comfortable than stock). Been through 2 transmission. Near as I can tell it's got 160K miles on it. I've ridden from the tip of Baja to Prudoe Bay AK.

    I checked the link you posted - interesting site but not as much fun as your thread. I enjoy just seeing the pics and serial numbers that go with them. It would be a good place to see where an old bike you used to own might now spend it's time. My own bike started life in Chattanooga, Tennessee; moved on to around Denver for a good part of it's life and then crossed the border into Canada in 2005. It now lives on the west coast in BC. I've got the old documents in my hand which show all of the U.S. owners - if they frequent this forum, then they would probably be thrilled to see their old bike. Jackd

    Well, the list says my 6363211 1986 g/s pd was a 10/85 production. Mine came via inmate Velvet Hammer (thanks again!) and is currently having its Zegas, cylinder guards, handguards, windscreen and mirrors replaced. Yes, the bluehairs ARE out to get you. As I turned left on the green arrow, the old gent blythly powered against the red into a right turn just to my right and about mid-bike. But, he sped up, continued on into my right side and I went down on my right shoulder. He hit the bike hard enough to rotate it 360 degrees, scraping all of the stuff on the TOP of the bike, just before it landed on top of me. BUT... (and more importantly) the tank is nearly unscathed. Of course. I saved it with my gut. A small dent left front lower that the Paintless Dent Guy can do, and another dime-size problem nearer the top.
    Well, it annoys me that having finally found a really nice C2 Shuberth that fits, he wrecked that. My gloves nearly prevented a 2nd degree wrist burn, and the BMW "club" jacket survived fine, with the exception of my dislocated shoulder. Damn. And I thought I made eye contact with him, too!

    Onward & upward!

    Beer, I love beer! Actually I've been forced to actually work this week and have been neglecting my ADVR duties... sadly I'll only be in the airport for about 2.5 hours... with any luck my flight will get delayed for a day or two!

    All the Yanks I've met have been lightweights when it comes to drinking Kev. A couple of pints of proper ale and they're falling all over the place :lol3

    That sounds like a challenge to me my deep-fried food loving friends.... obviously you guys have never visited the PNW, where we are famous for our micro brew beer!

    If you doubt our prowess, next time you are here I openly challenge you to finish a few pints of nightwatch ale with me.... from (one of the many) local breweries located just outside my 'hood... while listed at 5.5% alcohol right now it creeps to 11-ish come year end....

    You guys drink 3.3% Guiness or something, right? :lol3

    Lots of us "yanks" drink hard core beer. We just add 10 parts of water to it and call it Bud Lite.

    I'd love to take you up on that Gage :freaky

    Don't be mislead by the fizzy rubbish served in most of our pubs. It has to be the real stuff :deal http://www.camra.org.uk/page.aspx?o=100330

    I thought you guys would have to have some decent beer tucked away somewhere. Nobody could live on Budweiser and coors light for long.

    For the record. Chips do taste better when served in newspaper especially if they're cooked in beef dripping.
