2005 BMW R1150R

Just Bought in Chilly April, 2009
This is a fantastic machine. It's my 8th bike in 30 years, 6th Beemer and has now displaced my previous favorite, a 1974 BMW R90, as my absolute all-time favorite. Due to various horse and bike wrecks I have shrunk from 5'6" to 5'4 1/2". This bike is low - feet are flat, handles like a dream, smooth, endless power and has the most comfortable seat of anything I've ridden. Have virtually not had a sore butt yet. Since I bought it I've put on 6000 kms in 4 months! I am in love!
