Ok, since @BaldyDave insists, I’ll start:



She just makes me smile, every time.

2 dozen Rizoma-mods: cylinder covers, rear sets, breast plate, handlebar, license plate holder sidearm, levers, indicators, mirrors, and many more bits.
Wunderlich: center stand, lowering footpeg kit, tank bag, thermometer.
Wilbers fork, dozens of parts in black, incl. headers. Sargent seat. Dakar digital gauge. Radar detector. And even more pieces.

Fav aspect: My Dad just passed away, so I just went through old picture albums to prep for the funeral speech. And I just realized that the biggest impact he really had on me was the intro to motorcycles way back. Two wheels have taken me to 60+ countries on this planet in the past 40 years, hundreds of thousands of miles, sometimes in the most remote places, by myself, sometimes with great buddies, and every time was just another amazing “moving meditation” for me. My other BMW just turned 20, this one will stay with me for the next 20 years as well. Which doesn’t mean this is my last bike, far from it. But by that time, it’ll probably be time to slow down a bit. And that’s a humbling thought. Carpe Diem.

Today, my three teenage boys all have their license, the R Nine T gets taken out quite often together (yep, the 17yo get the big bike, too, of course only under my supervision), which is a fantastic bonding experience. They now got the biker-and travel-bug as well. Next year, all three will graduate at the same time, and a father&sons farewell international bike trip is in the making. Legacies...
