    I called BOB'S BMW in Jessup, MD yesterday. When I was in class at the BMW Motorrad facility I ran my vin for ha-ha's

    on Dealerspeed.

    Ready for this............

    The bike was in for its last service before the insurence total................the out mileage was.............

    "Survey Says"...............

    1068 miles. :tb

    Nice!!!!!!!!!!

    Even if....and I say if, the owner rode it for a few hundred or thousand more miles, it never saw the the 6000 mile service.

    That's a steal. Bike is looking awesome. Always loved the HP2s, but my wallet doesn't :deal. How's the build going?

    Horsemeat- can you please post a video of your HP2 running, idling or coughing so we can put this thread to rest? Hate to see this discussion continue for another two years with no forward progress and needless glad-handing.

    Same difference. 1068 miles, red frame & carbon or not, many would like to see it's running. Not empty promises of parts arriving or boasts.

    Hillbilly polak hangs on his every word, gs owners relish in his ability to make a hero sandwich, The United Nations has quoted his advrider banter, Sasquatch has a picture of him, he is....... The most interesting hp2 owner in New England

    "Stay thirsty my friends!!!" :lol3

    Boxer-owning ADVriders envy his red framed salvage, despite it never turning a piston in anger. MMI alumni scratch their heads in wonder 'did he even learn anything'? BMW parts desks from coast to coast gladly answer their phones to someone so willing to drop money into a non-running project. HP2 enthusiasts watch in slack-jawed amazement and curiosity if the patient will ever leave the operating table under its own power (while quietly envying a low-cost HP2). He himself is completely impressed with a 1068 mile bike he's never ridden.

    I have a beer, and it is indeed Dos Equis. "Stay Thirsty, my friends"

    Now if you are building Boxers, when can we see it running? Or should I even ask? Just askin', man. Just askin.

    I've known two people that have owned HP2's and ridden with them. They have each given me their testimonies on condition of remaining anonymous.

    One is in HP2 recovery, the other was able to quit "cold turkey" and didn't require intervention.

    This is what they have to say:

    There is an interesting habit among HP2 owners which is best observed through a mathematical formula to explain the fascinating physics behind this symbiotic relationship that defines the man/machine interface.

    3
    S = ckA
    4hG

    That should get you close enough to begin. After listening to there hours of HP2 monologues I have been able to come to the following conclusions. No government agencies were involved, and there remains only a lingering doubt or two as to whether or not any animals were harmed during the creation of the HP2.

    The HP2 redefines the sciences. The boys in Spandau had no idea what they were really creating, it should have been born in a lab in a dark and creepy forest in Romania. They came up with a machine that runs not entirely on fuel, but on an otherworldly amount of currency, blood, sweat, tears, and sheer human emotion.

    So what is the HP2?

    It was a machine built for a tiny niche market that was never really studied closely. But actually existed all along!

    It was a machine that encompassed cutting edge state of the art engineering and production methods, yet required constant and costly further refinement on the part of those participating as owners in the project's life history.

    It was a machine that transcended astro physics in that it is a true black hole that is touchable and easy to observe even inside a garage.

    In the realm of economics it is equaled only by boats used as pleasure craft in being able to make huge sums of any currency totally disappear without any trace and without any warning!

    Artistically speaking, it would have taken Da Vinci, the Marquis de Sade, Howard Hughes, and Satan himself to work together as a team for at least a few decades to come up with something that could rival it.

    In the field of international relations, not even the Japanese would hazard a guess as to what the original engineers were thinking when the HP2 was drawn up.

    In literary terms, it is as if it had sprung forth from the fertile imaginations of the late Dr. Michael Crichton, Isaac Asimov, and Salvador Dali.

    Musically speaking, it is as well understood as a Theremin instrument.

    Modern day religion has no known parallel in the HP2's ability to invoke a cult following.

    Not even Alvin Toffler saw it coming.

    It defies logic.
    It defies description.
    Yet, it lives among us.
    Be afraid.
    It's gonna mess you up, boy!:eek1

    The HP2E is indeed a strange creature. It's strengths (small fuel tank, conventional aluminium frame) may be interpreted as its weaknesses.

    It is a beauty, no doubt. So it is like a thoroughbred race horse. Hence when such a steed gets a reprieve from the butcher's yard, many strained to see how the steed would finally run, if at all. I'm one of them.

    the declaration of the CEO is the following :

    The HP2 product is a image vector, the equivalent of serie M for cars.
    These bikes are exclusives and will become 'collectors'.

    Pamela Anderson was an image vector once, too.
    But her maintenance was cheaper and her bolt on accessories were fewer.

    But unlike the project on this thread, there is a video of her actually being ridden!

    Go back and read the part about my knowing and having ridden with two HP2 owners.
    Or do you mean the video of me with Pamela Anderson?
    Is this going to be a "you post yours and I'll post mine" type deal?
    Humorous interludes aside, I am actually pulling for you to pull the rebuild off and have fun with the thing.
    I think every HP2 ends up being some kind of work in progress, nobody seems satisfied with a stock HP2 or they have issues like fuel pumps or shocks or things that need fixing.
    I've owned a fire rebuild bike before, there is something about them that is fun, almost like the bikes feel they got a second chance.
    The thing looks mean, hope it rides well and runs like it should have when it left Spandau.
    I also think it is great you went to a tech school for training on new bike technology.
    Buying a fire write off means not having to deal with BMW customer service for warranty claims.
    That alone is a major plus!

    Should I book my flight to Hollywood and call Pam?:evil
