I am considering parting out the 07' and then selling the bike, lookout for a parting out thread. :mrgreen:

If you are talking about the Z-technik screen hanging on the wall then yes, PM me with an offer. :D


Some new action shots from Mulholland. :D

The picture just about says it all. The rider is a very experienced and capable woman from Anchorage. She sustained only minor bruises as a result. She has ridden the bike to Deadhorse, Inuvik and on just about every dirt road in AK and the YT. She was near Dawson City when she got too wide in a corner, got into gravel and hit a large rock. ATGATT really does work. Less than 24 hours after the accident she called me to buy my 08 R... And she did.

I would think that is not worth the repair, lucky to survive something like that.

Here's the last "new" photo I'll be posting, me handing over the keys to the new happy owner who I think will love Roadie the Roadster as much as I did.
103,786 wonderful joy filled and drama free miles, was a little sad today but this bike has a lot of life left in it and needs to be ridden... oh the stories it can tell it's new garage mates. 8)
It's been great being a part of this forum for the last 9 years, I will still try to pop in now and then to check up on ya'll.
You guys and gals keep the rubber side down.

Cheers

Finn

What? Tell us it isn't so. The forum won't be the same without your posts and your beautiful photos. We will miss you.

Here are a couple of pics from my recent Labor Day Weekend ride to the Motorcyclepedia Museum in Newburgh NY. This photo was taken on Route 97 along the PA / NY border. After the museum I met my wife in Watkins Glen for the BMW Finger Lakes Rally.

Rick,

Our local club does an Oktoberfest weekend the same weekend as Colors in the Catskills - in the upper Catskills, AKA the Bavarian Alps.. and that's part of the route up. We're planning on visiting Motorcyclepedia on Saturday afternoon.

Curious - what are the last 7 digits of your VIN, mine are ZX96991 - wonder how far apart the two redheads were in the production line.

I've been away from this board for a few years but on just buying a 2012 R1200R I've returned and will post a few things to contribute. First one is of last years trip to China, this is the bike they lent me for the week, I'd had it the previous year and has prompted me to get the one I have just bought.

Who is loaning you an R1200R in China? I imagine that's somewhat of a rarity in China where most of the bikes are smaller (and there are a lot of them..)

I went over for the Tour of Beijing cycle race for the 4 years it was on as a press moto pilot. The organisation pulled the bikes in from a BMW owners club. They were mostly GSs but as I'm a short arse they got me the R. First year I had an R110R which was a bit of a heap and I was lucky to get round without it breaking down, the following year I had a Rockster which was quite good, then the last two years I had this.
