My usual ride is a 1977 R100/7, a bike very dear to me! However, for the upcoming BMW Rally in Salem I will be riding a 1973 R75/5 with 53,000 miles. My son is coming from Spain and riding my 1971 R75/5, a bike that has been restored and is really a sweet ride and ready to handle many trouble free miles. My 1973 came to me last year, and while the prior owner took good care of her, she was not ridden much since 1998. In fact she had new tires from 1998 with maybe 500-750 miles on them. I have ridden her about 500 miles and she runs very well. The distance traveled will be in the area of 1,000 to 1,500 miles, we won't be traveling in a straight line down the interstate! I installed new Avon Road Rider and new tubes, the AM26. So tires are good. I cleaned and lubed the final drive splines, which, to my relief have a bare minimum of wear. I am pulling the carbs to check out the bowls for any junk, I will replace the cylinder to carb rubbers since they show some cracks, new plugs and of course check the timing and a valve adjustment. I probably won't do the fork oil...but I am open to comments on that. I figure the bottom bumpers will probably be mushed, however, the forks function just fine. Steering head bearings feel nice and smooth. All the cables are "new" except for their age. Spark plug wires are real new. I will replace the battery from another bike I have just to avoid a failure on a battery of an unknown age. I cleaned out the fuel tank and petcocks, very little debris in there. The pushrod tubes are dry, so far...they are old. However, I really don't want to get into the usual do everything you can think of mode like I would if it were winter and I had months to work on her. Then this winter I will do a output shaft spline lube and maybe pushrod seals just because of their age and a full fork service. After the Rally she will be driven to club events or a vintage night ride, no touring. Anyone think of something I am simply missing?
