BMW R-Series description

Beautiful and rather rare 1984 R-80-ST.  It runs very well.  Has been garaged and started frequently, and ridden in the last 6 months.  I was told it is a 1983 even though the paper work says 1984.  Speedometer reads 373 miles.  It is stock except for:

It has been lowered for the needs of a doctor who owned it before we bought it back.

The seat, shocks and tires have been modified to lower the entire bike making it a very nice motorcycle for a shorter rider or as a first bike.

Nothing has been altered that cannot be taken back to stock.  The frame has not been altered at all.

Instrument panel has machine turning.

It lived near the beach for 3 years, so there is some paint oxidation as seen in the pictures.

Head protectors have been added

There is a new Clymers manual, new battery, and a second seat lock

Front fender to ground 26

Seat to ground 32

Back fender to ground 33

Rear tire: Dunlop 491/120-90B18 71H

Front tire: Avon AM20 90-H18

Akront aluminum rims

If the bike is taken for a test ride, the asking price in cash must be left with me.

The bike can be picked up at my home near San Diego, or I will help the buyer with shipping arrangements.

EICMA 2013: 2014 BMW nineT First Impressions – Video

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 00:00:00 -0800

We were one of two US motorcycle publications to attend the unveiling of the 2014 BMW nineT in Munich a few weeks ago. The unique roadster was designed to both embody and celebrate the 90 years of BMW motorcycles by emphasizing the archetypical form of BMWs qualities. Now, as part of the EICMA 2013 show, the rest of the world media and the public who are lucky enough to be in Milan get a chance to throw a leg over one.

BMW's optional extras are getting ridiculous

The third instalment of the Indian action blockbuster Dhoom became the highest grossing Indian film of all time. More interesting than that are the laughable bike scenes, with Dhoom 3 featuring one chase scene between a K1300R and a S1000RR. In the first Dhoom film a Hayubasu magically transformed into 125cc bike for a train jump.

European Parliament Makes ABS Mandatory, Tighten Emissions Standards by 2016

Wed, 21 Nov 2012 00:00:00 -0800

The European Parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of new rules that would increase emission standards and make anti-lock braking systems mandatory for all new large motorcycles, scooters and trikes and quads by 2016. The new regulations, which would still need approval from European Union member states, may only directly affect Europe, but they will have a wide-reaching affect on manufacturers’ product development for other markets. BMW, for example, has already made ABS standard for all its motorcycles for 2013.
