    I WISH :lol3 My wife ... not so much. Got three in the herd at the moment ... lookin' to take it down to two. Either way, a good time will be had.

    I just need to figure out a way to talk her into a /5. That headlight bucket is sexy. :freaky

    I've got a spare bucket and gauge just for you :)
    That way you have a compromise with your wife. "But it's just the bucket!!"

    I have a 1977 Havana Gold R75/7 that has just come back to life after 20+ years of being in storage. Cosmetics are done and the engine starts but does not run well. Anyone have a twinmax carb balancer available to get these carbs setup correctly? I am located in Woodstock and we could have a tech session here if y'all are interested. I'd love to get this bike sorted out.

    I am trying to reset the carbs the old fashioned way. The right side seems spot on but the left side is running rich. I have expanded the tab on the float to lower the gas level and turned in the pilot jet a quarter turn. I will try it again before Saturday to see if I get lucky. I am not sure I want to drive it to Decatur like this. If it runs better I will try to get there. You will have to PM me with the address. Thanks.

    Back in Seattle, FINALLY
    Saw this guy parked outside the building where I was staying in Brooklyn on Broadway a block from the Williamsburg bridge. The doorman said the owner lived in the building and owns some other "old BMWs". Anybody we know?

    Thanks for providing some welcome relief to having to watch all the hipsters posing on their fashion accessory hardtail xs650 bobbers. Brooklyn is painful.

    Steel Blue Airhead bright yellow helmet. :ricky

    Saw you today on my way home from work at 5:35pm today in Atlanta. Heading South on Northside at the North Ave. intersection. Too far away and no time for a pic. and proper bike model identification but it looked similar to this without the fairing and what looked like silver (unpainted) valve covers

    Driving by Derby Reach in Langley BC. Spotted a gorgeous bumblebee r100gs... so I stopped and had a wonderful 1/2 hour conversation about the wild hops growing on the side of the road and his great bike. The next day while browsing the forums I read a post by someone posting about his gs that matched the description. A little detective work and I was pretty sure it was the same bike. PM the poster and sure enough SAME person! True story.
