I'm new to BMW's. We bought our pair of baby GS's in 2005. After that came the 2004 'C' (it was still in the crate when we bought it in 2009), then R850R, and the three airheads: 78 R45, 78 R80 with hack and a 73 R75.
We are the second owners of the R75. Our friend bought it new when he owned the BMW dealership in Merced CA. He can't ride anymore and it was breaking his heart to sell it. At least he knows it's in good hands, and he can come visit it whenever he wants. :-)
