    One of best bikes produced by BMW. So under rated. I had a 93 GSPD. A lot in common.

    One of my mates father bought one of those Beemas new, way back in the day.
    Can still picture him riding down the driveway arriving home.

    Those crates stacked up. Were you visiting a KLR mod-shop?
