I HOPE you blew off going to Vegas! It's grim and rainy here today. WHAT A DEAL!! Nice if you get in running, but even parting it out (a crime, but justifiable if the engine is seized), you are way ahead.
Jim, who is NOT going flying and NOT going riding today.

No year, no model, out of DMV, and the standard "needs carbs cleaned and battery" Ad had only been up for 20 minutes. Called up the number but the seller had little information other then it has two carbs, might be a 1992 and have R in the model name. Hmm sounds like an R65? Whatever $250 BMW I will take it tonight!

Did I mention that I was completely exhausted from a long work week with little sleep, feel a cold coming on, going to Las Vegas in the morning for the weekend, the bike was 50 miles away and it's raining?

And it was all worth it for this!
Please don't tell Mom I'm a pilot. She thinks I play piano in a whorehouse.
