    How about "C" instead of "S"?

    From what I have seen, a younger crowd having a different kind of fun. If they can buy it, burn the tire off it and fix it themselves

    In this case burnouts have to do with the Cali motorcycle designer mystic. Over the last decade Sands and company have produced a variety of very interesting concepts in all genres of MCs. Burnouts may be all about all show and no go but even you have to admit Sands' homage design is about show and go. I like it.

    I don't care who fixes it.....the burn-out thing is just folks with either too much money or too few brains doing something pointless with a machine. It doesn't show diddly relative to the quality (design or build) of the machine.

    Oh the times they are a changing.

    It's not my dad's Beemer, it's not your Beemer and it's not my Beemer.....................................


    But BMW realizes we are all going to be gone in the foreseeable future and a newer generation has to be brought into the BMW fold.

    And that's what it's all about!

    Huh?

    Two versions of F650, one is a single, the other a twin. To further confuse things the old F650 was renamed the G650.
    Hexhead and camhead bikes have the same name but several different parts.
    The new wethead is a completely new bike that uses the same name.

    It's already mixed up. You have to specify the year in addition to the model to get the proper part.

    Then there is the R100 not a slash, not a letter and many believe it didn't exist in the US including parts men. My first airhead was an adventure bike in so many ways.

    See, what do I know! I never made it out of 1978...at least they were still "pretty good" up that point?? However, in the grand scheme, going back to 1923, they have been true to unique numbering than not...I guess that is the point I was trying to make.

    I'd sure hate to obfuscate the venerable R90S Airhead. That's my vote...anything else except R90S!

    What if they name it the R90S, I break my piggy bank and rob a bank so I can buy one then take the 90S markings off it; can I still post on the forum?
