Huh. I am also in Socorro. Nice to see someone else here. I think I may even know who you are ;^).

This bike belongs to a friend and coworker of mine. Chris is good people and the bike is exactly as represented in his CL ad.

BMW R100RT - $3150 (New Mexico)

This sale is for a 1982 BMW R100 RT. This bike is black and in excellent condition. I have owned it for the last many years,it has been garage kept during that time. The bike runs beautifully and is in original condition to the best of my knowledge with original paint, the only modifications made have been to add a leather Corbin seat and PIA lights. I have a new rear tire which needs to be mounted. This bike has only 46411 miles and other than a few paint chips that have occurred over the years is a beautiful example of a BMW airhead. This bike is in Socorro but it might be possibe to make arangements to see it in Albquerque.

If my R1200R would sell I'd be interested in this RT.

I love this thing, but unfortunately changes in my life situation (and parking situation in Cap Hill) forces me to sell. Apparently you can't safely fit a car seat in this thing, according to my wife. It's been lovingly cared for, washed at least once a week and always fed a steady diet of compact cars and aircraft. Great for anyone with inadequacy issues, or just one-upping Dave in Accounting and his new Land Rover (what better way to one-up him than eat the land rover and take over his parking spot?).


Specs
Year: 2002
Model: Truckasaurus
Mfgr: Maibatsu Heavy Industries
Engine: 500HP Cummins
Fuel Type: Souls of the Damned
Transmission: Hah!
Miles: 63,000 (mostly highway. Generally just used for commuting to my office in Englewood)
Gas Mileage: 3MPS (Miles-per-soul)


Great for commuting, or if you just want a side-business doing Monster Truck Shows and Bah Mitzvahs. Kids love this thing!

Will trade for a decent SUV or a Hovercraft.

IN RESPONSE TO SOME QUESTIONS I'VE GOTTEN:
-It *DOES* have cupholders. There are two, one is sized for a 120oz Big Gulp, and the other will fit a tallboy perfectly. There is also a built-in Kegerator.
-Sadly, it is illegal to just pick up cars blocking your way and crush them. Apparently this isn't as Free of a country as I thought.
-The flamethrowers run on garden variety propane. It uses standard grill cylinders, so it's super cheap and easy to refill them.
-It's registered as a Truck, and I believe you *can* get Handicap tags on it.
-Unfortunately, it doesn't qualify for the Fuel-Efficient parking spots at Sprouts, but you can probably park there anyways. I guarantee nobody will try and stop you.
-It's probably not the best way to get to the resorts. While I have put a ski rack on it, the Eisenhower Tunnel is a bit of a challenge. I guess if you are headed to Loveland or Winter Park you are probably okay.

I can get behind this idea. That stupid horse is an embarrassment.

Since I never drive there I had to research it a bit:

fter five years of either creeping out, intriguing or delighting travelers, the “Devil Horse” of Denver International Airport, as some critics call it, is getting a new round of attention, but it looks like it's going to stay.

Behold "Blue Mustang," a 32-foot, 9,000-pound, electric blue, anatomically correct fiberglass sculpture of a rearing horse situated along Peña Boulevard, the main road to the airport.

Its fierce looks and glowing red eyes have earned it nicknames such as "Blucifer," "Satan's Steed" and "Blue Stallion of Death.” Luis Jiménez, the artist who created it, died when a piece of the sculpture fell on his leg and severed an artery, adding to the exhibit’s eerie status.

Comments left on Denver International’s Facebook page have called it everything from “a hideous embarrassment” to “horrible, and a bit sick.” But other posters have called it “awesome” and "amazing."

As of last month, residents of the Mile High City can do more than vent online – they can ask officials to get rid of the horse.

In Denver, public art generally stays in place for five years before the city’s Commission on Cultural Affairs considers any requests to remove it, said Ginger White, a spokeswoman for the panel. The waiting period is designed to give new installations the chance to grow on people.

For “Mustang,” that window ended on Feb. 11, meaning it’s now eligible to be removed. But so far, the Denver Commission on Cultural Affairs has not received any requests to get rid of the sculpture, White told NBC News. There are no plans to discuss the horse at the group's monthly meeting on Tuesday.

For the commission to take action, a petitioner would have to demonstrate “extreme adverse public reaction” over an extended period of time, White said. Officials doubt that will happen.

Some find the 32-foot, 9,000-pound statue creepy, while others say it gets people talking about art.
“Mustang” will most likely stay, said Denver International spokeswoman Laura Coale, calling it an iconic piece for the area. In a recent survey, travelers cited the statue as one of the airport’s most memorable features, second only to its famous tent roof, she said.

But she acknowledged not everyone is a fan.

“We continue to receive mixed feedback on ‘Mustang,’” Coale said. “It’s just like any other piece of art work. Some people really like it and some people don’t.”

Count Denver real estate agent Rachel Hultin in the “don’t like” camp. Hultin – who once launched a Facebook page titled “DIA's Heinous Blue Mustang Has Got to Go” -- calls the piece interesting but not a good fit for its location. As travelers drive to the airport, they go by the horse quickly and glimpse it for only a few seconds so they don’t get the chance to learn more about it.

"It's a really aggressive piece of art and if you’re going to do that as a gateway piece of art for your international airport, you need to have interpretive information or let people at least develop a relationship with it," she told NBC News.

Like many critics, she finds the statue’s glowing red eyes “demonic” and menacing, especially at night. But Coale said this feature is actually the artist’s tribute to his father, who was a neon sign maker.

Public objection to the sculpture seems to have calmed down considerably, Hultin observed, and even though she still thinks it doesn’t belong at the airport, she won’t petition the city to move it.

Meanwhile, The Denver Post expressed hope the horse would stay put, praising it as a symbol of the region's historical and cultural heritage.

"The sculpture is — in the true sense of the word — remarkable," the newspaper declared in an editorial last month. "'Mustang' is a sort of bizarro Mr. Ed in that it's a horse that gets people unexpectedly talking — about art."

SP600's are pretty good bikes, and not many around. I think that motor has more snort than the DR650.

A buddy of mine rode desert with one when I lived in Vegas and was on an XR600. His SP worked pretty well....and he didn't have to haul it out to where we rode
