    New to Forum - East Central Missouri

    My first BMW forum... second BMW. Well, that last one was in 1979.

    I am an enthusiast, never having met a motorcycle that I didn't like. If it has two wheels, then it's OK with me.

    Bought first bike in 1971 and since that time have owned more than 50 bikes.

    This 1973 R75/5 is coming along nicely, but I have to admit that it's not one that I'm familiar with. Getting there..... slowly.

    Took it to it's first bike show on Sunday. The pictures really DO it justice..... doesn't look that nice up close.

    Current Inventory:
    '12 ST1300 ABS, '10 GL1800, '08 FLSTF,
    '08 VTX1300C, '08 VSTAR1300, '73 R75/5

    Welcome! 50!! What were your favorites? Maybe you'll really like the Toaster...they were a classic bike. The bike must be good enough to bring home the iron...way to go!

    Looks like you have Lester wheels...a nice period add-on. I'm sure you'll enjoy going over the bike...and getting things set up right. Some good posters in the Airheads forum, which I see you've already found!
