BMW owners?

In talking with many Strommers, it seems a number of us are present or ex-BMW owners. I had an '84 R65 (650 flat twin) before the Strom and still love the old Airheads.

Sound out if you have or had a Beemer!

I owned a 1977 R100S up until Sept. of this year. Still own a 2005 R1100S. For out-and-out comfort, the V-strom is the way to go.... For the thrill when you twist the throttle and shoot out of a corner (asphalt), the R1100 would be hard to replace.

The sig says it all.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html
