This weekend, my wife and I became the proud new owners of a beautiful 1982 R65LS (which is going to be "her" bike, and a backup commuter bike for me when my R1100RT is sprawled across the garage floor in itty bitty pieces! ). I have already managed to locate some factory original bags and bag mounts for the bike, but I need a few other things:
1) What is the recommendation for a tank bag? Is there a BMW original tank bag for this bike, or is the consensus to go with an aftermarket bag?
2) I noticed that there are KONI's (renamed "ikon") shocks for these bikes. Is it worth the investment? (I love the Ohlins on my R1100RT )
3) What was included in the original tool kit and was there a tire repair kit? I'm not sure if I've got all the tools, etc. for this bike.
4) Any ideas as to whether I can still get original Owner's Manuals for the R65LS? I have the owner's manual, but it about fell apart in my hands it's so old and brittle. Looks like an artifact recovered from the Titanic!
Anything else I should know about these bikes as a new owner? Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!
