I had been riding a BMW R100RT for 15 years untill 2004.
As a long time BMW rider, although not currently, WELCOME!!! Might I ask, what year Airhead RT did you have? I had a 82' for several years, along with a 92' R100RS, and a 86' R65 all sitting in the garage at the same time.
I actually discovered that I enjoyed riding the R65 and it got most of the riding time. It was just a plain model with BMW hardbags. I enjoyed the bike, but wanted something smoother as the R65 had a nasty buzz at 70mph in 5th gear.
I ended up selling all three BMW's in an effort to find a plain, monoshock R80. I didn't have any luck finding one (this was 8-9 years ago) and needed a bike for the Midland, MI BMW MOA rally. I ended up buying something I knew I'd hate, but I needed a bike for the rally, so I bought a 87 K75S... Just as I figured, I hated it. I'd owned a 86 K75C and hated it before..
Anyway, I found a 2000 R1100R and rode that for years, just finally selling it to a co-worker 2 years ago.
I'm again hunting for a plain Airhead to go do my weekend playing.
Again, Welcome to the site!!
