    My current screen saver

    Here she is - a 1983 R80 g/s (always loved the white ones). My first BMW was a blue R80 g/s in 1985. As a part of the wooing process, Don gave me this bike back in 2005 - I think he understood me, even then. 14,000 kms (8,700 miles) on the clock and garaged almost exclusively for over 20 years by her original owner, I ignored the 'wisdom' that said she should be preserved in her then current state and proceeded to ride her everywhere.
    The person on her is Linda Bootherstone who, back in 1985, founded the South Australian chapter of WIMA - the Women's International Motorcycle Association. We were all pretty new to riding BMWs then but Linda's stories were fantastic. She has been riding for more than fifty years. In 1967 she went into Russia and later, in 1974 she rode from her home in the UK down through Africa and eventually on to Australia, by herself on a 17 y.o. 500cc BMW.
    This photo was taken at a Christmas picnic with the current members of our chapter in December 2015. Linda was having a little trip down memory lane. Good friends, good times, good memories.
