    Coming back, my bikes had some issues. On the way home I stopped into Grass Roots BMW in Cape Geradeau, Mo.. Mainly to talk to Dave Bork the head tech. Diagnosis, Clutch was gone, common to this bike. Dave gave a short discription of the procedure. OMG, Yikes, OMG again. Break the bike into and install clutch. OMG again. Thanked Dave again and rode home. OMG.
    The ride to Missoula.

    Bikes sometimes your riding; sometimes your wrenching.

    Back to this. Oil head complex by design. Actually I have really enjoyed the bike for the most part. I think it's one of the prettier oilheads. 90 HP is probably about the amount of power I need. Then again maybe it's time for a S1000XR or a new R9T Scrambler.
    Pretty bike when all together.

    Pulled this old T outa the rag bag. Kinda sad, probably the first BMW T I ever bought; early 1980ís. Loved this time of my life. Riding in the wind; the little R50 was a good riding partner for a beginner rider.

    Back in the early 80's the dealer in Memphis sold H/D's, BMW's, and Yamaha's. It took all three to keep the dealer afloat. The EVO Harley was on the way to save Harley. When the Harley phenomenon took off, the dealership was glad to drop Yamaha then BMW.
