Hi you all!
I'm currently own an BMW R1150R '02, which I'm think to
replace with a R1150GS or R1200GS(I'm not sure which one yet!)
However, I became to like the simplicity on the air cooled boxers, and I even find it romantic, without ever have owned one.
So I'm thinking on getting an airhead, but I not sure what should I be looking, and want to hear some recommendations from people more experienced on this subject.
I don't plan to ride the airhead much, just the ocassional commute (20km) to work, and some short rides on weekends.
And who knows maybe my wife would find the airhead less intimidating, and would like to start learning on it.
And finally, I would like to get a model that has chances of becoming a collector's item, in 50 years of so. So that when my grandchilds look at it, it would say cool!
I guess I'll be looking at late 70's or early 80's model, since I believe that it would be easier to find parts. You tell me?
Am I asking for to much? If not which models do you recommend me?
I live in Guatemala, Central America, and being and small (third world) country, the BMW Motorcycle community is small, so I have not that many options where to choose regarding second hand market, however, we do get some Euro-spec only models here!
Currently my research has bring the following models:
1997 R80GS Kalahari 14000KM (8700 milles aprox). $5,000.00 (Expensive!)
1982 R65 3000KM (1,800 milles aprox) $3,500.00
Is there any of this models ok with my specs or should I keep looking?
Thanks in advance and sorry for my English!
