    Finally noticed a serious lack of Beemer riders. I spied one airhead rider beside his airhead over in front of the BMW side of the building. Went over and met Bob and his nice '75 R90/6. Instant comraderie of /6 fanship; made my day.

    Made one last trip around the dealership, the ladies were leaving out in their group packs; Bob was gone. Time to go. Left with a smile on my face; good to know there a still people with the passion for motorcycles and riding. Time to head home.

    I just made a pass thru some of the vendors and some of the campground. Seen some nice stuff and met some cool attendees, saw some neat bikes. Tuckered out, need to take a cat nap.

    One of the interesting things about attending the BMW national is getting the chance to see some slightly obscure BMW motorcycle models. I got the chance this last weekend. I meandering around the fairgrounds and spied one of those models, the '91 R100 'Classic' monolever. The majority of R100 monolevers were RS's and RT's. The R100GS's and R100R's were paralever models. Very little info given by BMW on this model
    One or two pics and a one sheet info page of this model. I've talked to a couple of owners of this bike and they tell me the owner's manual is the RT manual. They tell me that when they try to bring up the microfische for parts, they are told model does not exist. Funny and interesting. The gentleman that owned this was much pleased that I correctly ID'ed his bike.

    I told him, that I remembered this model bike being on the showroom at the Memphis BMW dealer at that time. At that time it did'nt interest me much. I was looking at the R100RS's and RT's; and all the K bike models. Anyway it was neat to see a nice clean version of this model at the national.

    I forgot to mention one kind of unique feature of this bike, it has a chrome head light bucket. Other than that, it's just pretty straight forward nice rather plain R100.

    Here's a '91 R100 Classic I saw at BMW of Omaha a few years back.

    This bike has some of the installed accessories available for this bike. A couple of BMW accessories that I think really work for this bike is the airhead windshield set and the BMW spotlamp kit. A lot of the time the parts manuals read no longer available now nla. At the present time, both are available. I don't think their available as complete kits. They must be ordered as individual pieces. Kind of a pain, but they are available. Get'em while you can.

    Jb got me to thinking about rare airheads from the 90's. Couldn't think of to many. None really. A few had paint jobs that were a little obscure, but nothing really came to mind till I remembered the Legends race series. The first couple of years the famous motorcycle racers, raced R100R's. Each year had special paint and graphics and the racers signature on the bikes. After the race series was over for the year, the bikes were sold off. Those bikes qualify as rare collectable 90's airheads.
