Here is Der Panzer the day after i picked it up and rode it 400 miles to get it wisconsin, so i could ride another 608 the next day. Look how clean it is-- and only a simple tank bag. i bought it March 15th with 36,000.
Here Der Panzer now. Just turned over 49,000 miles last night.
of course, i've had three failures since i've owned it. one spark plug donut gasket, one leaky bushing around the valve cover bolt, and one valve stem.
and before you rush to the defense of BMW, it was
a BMW factory valve stem which let go.
