She is a 1982 R65LS.

I just love the looks of the bike and I always wanted an Airhead. Now I have the best of both worlds.

Looks great. How does it run, does it have enough umph? Ride it to the Non-Trinity Ride.

Sorry mate, but no. There is so much to see at Goodwood each year that it's bloody hard to keep your concentration on any one thing long enough!

I wish I'd been ready for the bike when it first appeared around that bend.

The track was damp and the bike appeared around the bend with the rider stood on the pegs and in a huge, controlled, rear-wheel slide.

The bike is a genuine BMW Mobile Tradition ex-Dakar entrant.

Some of the cars and bikes are unique and literally worth millions. One or two end up in the scenery each year. That's what's so special about the Festival of Speed, it's great to see these things being used as intended albeit in timed events as opposed to static in museums.

Next time I promise to get some decent close-ups.

I'm going to see the BMW Mobile Tradition collection in Munich this year, maybe I'll get some then.

Not mine but a guy I met yesterday practising with the Vintage Racing Motorcycle Club was about to take it out on the circuit. Not a real Rennsport but a fun bike and it certainly sounded good going round the circuit!

There's thread in Jo Momma called "Track Day Old School", but I guess that I can't post in that area due to my Noobness, so here's a shot of the old warhorse at Thunderhill Raceway. Yes, I am that big.

I had a '92 R100R also. Fabulous motorcycle! Combines modern handling and braking with the classic boxer "feel" and simplicity. Really comfortable, too. Somebody buy this thing!
