It's Not The Biggest !! It's Not The Fastest !! However, when used for it's intended purpose of long distance touring it truly can do it all. In a style like no other motorcycle. This is no clone by any sense of the imagination.
With only 3520 miles, this beautiful R Series BMW is barely broken in. These fine machines are known for easily exceeding 100,000 miles.
She virtually has a full entertainment center with an am/fm radio and cd player. The cd player is located in the righthand side luggage compartment. The controls for the radio and cd are conveniently located on the left handlebar and also directly in front of you. Heated grips for more comfortable cold weather riding.
She has about 65 bhp at the rear wheel. Not huge power, but more than adequate. Still way faster than most cars. And she sips fuel instead of drinks it. This is one of the few if only large touring machines that can average 50 mpg or over on the highway, making all this fun sensible in the process. Don't forget that electronic cruise control (like a car) for additional comfort on those long rides.
