OK, Pommie John's "backing it in" was my background for a day or two, but the young lady on the salt flats has bumped that photo.

Not that bad ass - but still an airhead, well some of it.
Belong to a friend of mine - Erik the blacksmith. At the time its under heavy
modification - the internals are undergoing some horrific weight reducing procedures

I'd buy it and Agostini's 6-cylinder MV too

grateful to be a sucker and have a BMW.
Flowers? hell, no.

Now if it was some other piece, I'd have to think about it. Ok, I still wouldn't buy that MV.

This photo here, now this is a crying shame--and shame on that current owner.

I wouldn't think a burnt clutch would take that long to fix.

Fixed the clutch after the Bash, the bike was ridden a lot since then and I holed a piston once but rebuilt it. my mate bought it off me then moved to Germany and they would not let him ride it out there with all the mods so I bought it back, then years later he moved back to blighty and I sold it back to him, then he had a family and it sank into the state it is in today, I dont really want it back it looks very sad but I have too much else to do.

Just worked out that when I bought the R75/7 back in 83 it was only 6 years old (and bog stock in metallic blue with headlamp fairing) and I cut it up with a hacksaw (cos it was a cheap nail then), cant imagine buying a 6 year old beamer now as a cheap hack.

I've never seen anybody do a burnout on an airhead before.

That's because your average BMW rider thinks that sort of behaviour is childish, (I used to wheelie it too).

Hell, even an R80 can do it.
