BMW Nine-T custom

Looks like a customised R nineT.

The bike that takes the remants of the aircooled GS hardware and was made into a cafe racer.

Seems to be THE bike for customisation.

Article here also on Japanese customising said beast.

The Other JC screwed with this post 11-05-2014 at 06:17 AM Reason: r9t link

The R9T is a Camhead, that is a Hexhead R1200R. Not bad really!

Goofy bike. Big knobbies and clip ons.

It's like taking Jessica Alba out in a formal gown to the dance and she's wearing oversized combat boots. She may be creating 'a look', but she can't dance.
