I swear the older BMW riders freak when they see a dirty bike, young rider, and a few modifications that aren't additional turn signals.

It is a cool little clip, strange but that is the point....

It feels so unnatural to me to cruise around at 4800rpm at 70mph, the...

I have a question for you all that I don't believe deserves it's own thread.

My R65 is annoying and buzzy as hell on the highway. This leaves me to cruise at what I feel is a painfully slow 55mph....

While riding the oil coated rear tire slipping everywhere didn't scare me much, I was more concerned why it was acting like I was on ice. It wasn't until I got off the bike and saw how much oil was...

It helps when the bike wasn't too sideways. It would have really sucked if the thing went before some hairpins, I would have been down for sure. Being mostly upright and for how fast it happened, I...

Eye opener for a new guy

I have been riding my R65 for nearly a year now. I took it out of the shed after rebuilding the carbs and rewiring my signals and decided to tune the carbs and go for a jaunt. Full face helmet,...

It's a 1980 R65. It must be a bearing of some sort. As you mention when driveshafts go they vibrate and I get no vibration.

Yesterday I drove about 15-20miles at a sustained 75mph in 5th gear. And the bike hits me with a high pitched whine that sounded similar to a throwout bearing whine but much much...
