Saw this BMW parked at a guesthouse.
It looks as if the rider is on a long distance trip.
An occasional ride chum's fine BMW.
One of those classic bikes with no bad sides or angles.
I had a 78' this same color!! Lovely bike but no where near this condition!
Thanks Mr. Beard....
I will pass that along to my chum.
He's 70 or so and has a couple BMWs. He and his bike(s) are a class-act. We do a couple "ride and eat" days here and there.
Decent fellow, knows his bikes well. Sometimes we let him lead!
We stopped at Ha Ha Tonka Park in Missouri to hike out to a natural bridge. This KLR was in the parking lot. After we got back, the owner showed up. He said he had camped on the trail overnight and left his bike covered. He said someone had gotten under the tarp and stole his helmet.
I was on my way to Alaska and was in Whitehorse waiting for the road to open, there had been a fuel truck go over and the road was closed.... In the same motel was the fellow riding this rig. We had a chance to chat it up... He was from Florida, and rode almost every year from home to Fairbanks running different routes and exploring the country... The thing is, he was in his mid 70's, and wore an oxygen bottle... there are two extra tires, because he blew up the axle on the trailer and had to do a road fix, and did not want to leave the tires behind... when he was loading up, he was struggling a bit, and I asked him if he wanted help... he said No, and his reasoning was if he couldn't do it, he should not be on the road... He left an hour or so before me... I got as far as Tok before I tied down into a motel weary from being beaten up by the 250 mile Blacktop Bitch Slap from Destruction Bay to Tok... but he made it all the way to FairBanks...A Marine who did three tours in Vietnam, as tough as nails and it showed. I texted him a few times a year, but lost his contact info... compared to him, I am nothing but a rank amateur.
