I've been looking through the ride posts and all I see are pics of BMWs (yellow, blue, and black!). Shirley™️, someone must ride something else!

I'm down to these...likely forever.

Well, um, it's a ... BMW. In yellow.

Those both look like fun. I've never owned a BMW. That one in the front is missing a front brake rotor. :eek:

That is a rare sighting with one to the right of the yellow line in a left hand turn.

I've ridden BMWs several hundred thousand miles. 87 k100rs, 95 k1100rs, 2001 k1200rs. Couple seasons racing an airhead r100 with WERA. Pretty good motorcycles.....

But let's see a picture of the bike you ride now! :) (BTW I know you love the Thruxton and I bet you'd love the F800GT too. It's pure BMW, but a lot lighter than the boxers and bricks you used to ride.)

I have ridden a friend's K1200 back in the day. That was a comfy missile, but it was in the shop A LOT. It turned me off enough to use other brands instead.

Sure, but you can find a lemon from any brand. We've had four BMWs now, and knock on wood, the only problem we've had was with the wiring harness on the F650CS, which, once we finally found it, was a $100 fix.
