I've also seen a few early /7's with the /5 & /6 valve covers. BMW never seemed to roll out a 100% model change back then...

It could be from the /6 series; I'll look up the R100R later. Fairing is either aftermarket or cut-down RS.

You can still buy several variations of valve covers. They're interchangeable.

So, here's the apparent deal on this very cool bike. My source is Ian Falloon's "The BMW Boxer Twins Bible" (WWW.Velocebooks.com), pages 113-115.

Almost bone-stock 1994 R100R, albeit with luggage and that fairing. One of the last series of airheads built before the beginning of the oilhead era. Came with the early-style valve covers on what was then a modern engine (note the plastic air box), dual front discs with a drum rear brake, paralever rear suspension. Black frame. Engine was basically the same as the R100GS. Fuel tank is different than the /6 and /7 series.

This would be a great bike to own and ride . . . .

Ignoring the fact that the author of the RR tells us that it's an R100R for the moment, the bike does not have chrome side covers, but it does have the same valve covers as the /5.

That's cool! Explains why it was so confusing.

Does that make it a Heritage Edition?

Well, it's still got two wheels . . .

. . . but I think HBN would approve.


Beautiful Morning For A Ride

Rising sun slides thru the firs.
Their east sides shining like morning golden spikes.
The old bicycle slips almost silently along the back roads.
Tires hum, shoes squeak lightly on pedals
The sound of breathing.
Morning sun bends around,
Warm sun and cold water makes heavy fog
Along the Hood Canal.
Sonorous foghorns on the left
Sweet sun warming my right.

Later climbing the last hill out of Island Lake
Sun bends around, almost hot, sweating lightly
But still cool in the shade.

Beautiful morning for a ride.












It was a nice morning indeed. Temps hit about 70 by the time I was done. Fog cleared too! Not quite 27 miles.

Hmmm. Falloon mentions a "Classic Edition" of both the R100R and R100RT for 1995 and 1996.

The bike in the photo has fork gaitors, not standard (but a good idea), and may have black instrument surrounds, like the 95 and 96 versions. But the photos in Falloon's book show a small "R100R Classic" decal at the base of the fuel tank directly underneath the roundel.

As you noted, there were lots of variations within each model. Using up the parts bins I suppose.

Jeebus man, what parts haven't you replaced on that KLR?

I think she sighs in relief everytime you mount the Beemer.
