[Michal Buffer] In the blue corner, sporting 4 inline cylinders, dual overhead gear-driven cams, 16 valves, 399 cubic centimeters of blowing room, redlining at 13.5k and weighing in at just over 400 pounds, the 1990 Honda CB-1! This little monster just found its ten-thousandth mile, sits on newish rubber, has a dent in the tank and low domestic parts availability! In the red corner, it IS your grandpa's ride, a 1973 BMW R75/5! To tell you about this German giant would be a disservice to its wide popularity among coffee-drinkers! What I can say is that it's open for an even trade, 56,000 miles, and needs carburetor adjustments. [/Michael Buffer] Anyway, they're very different bikes, but tell me which you'd pick and why. I'm being intentionally vague about what I want in a bike. Also, tell me what you can gather about Grandpa there, as I know near nothing about BMW's.
