Yeah I'm not crazy about red tape on the mostly black bike either.

The mod I did is a Yoshi fender eliminator.

I'm liking all kinds of colors on bikes that may not be my preference for me on a car.

Want to make it slow so they don't have to worry about getting overtaken by a girl. You could get an RS250, those are like 70hp because they are two stroke.

Obviously that is what happened to me. I was building that E30, got it to a finished point. Thought about turbo but instead got a bike. Now on the bike I get more bang for the buck as an adrenaline pump. Hell, even blasting around the mountains I get better mileage than the car on the highway.

Haha! You're right! I was kidding a friend of mine who put Monster energy drink M stickers all over his bike and helmet, that I was going to put BMW stickers on mine.

I want to have a bike like a Beemer to graduate to one day. Kind of like me starting with Hondas then Acuras then moving up to BMWs

I'm on a super-naked (street-fighter) class bike--a full on liter bike--and even I hesitate to get on one of those S1000s. They are so over-the-top monstrous.

And pretty much the rest of BMW's bike lineup is adventure touring or semi-offroad-ish. Different crowd.

Honestly, despite being a sister to the massive car company, they are about as well represented as MV is. Not much in the way of a dealer network (although better than MV) so they aren't easily shown and people get spooked you cant always get them serviced.

Its hard to go that way (and I can understand why I don't see more MVs) when you can get a good Japanese bike and trip over dealerships every 5 feet or get a Duc and still have good support and everyone thinks its a super exotic (Monsters are cheap and carry the cache so you see them everywhere).

Thanks
Yeah i definitely couldn't drive a bright yellow bmw.
You'd think being bright yellow would help people see you better but no, it just proves that people don't look for us bikers.

My black/blue 07 GSX-R600 & my buddies charcoal gray 07 R6.

This is an old pic from the day I bought my bike.

Looks somewhat different now.

Selling it soon to fund my e92 project.

I recently bought a 335i after owning R1200GS for a couple of years. Yeah, motorcycle is faster, but after jb4, dci and E85 mix on map 5 I'd say 335i is quite a hoot. Although I'd never take her into the dirt...

The only thing that sucks about bikes where I live is that you have to keep it in storage for at least six months to not so friendly riding weather. Other than that this makes me wish I had a bike!

Just move South. Not only do you get a longer riding season but all of the other benefits of not dealing with frigid weather.

The funny thing is, when I drive my E90 after i drive my wife's car, it seems rough. However when I drive my E90 after I ride my RC51 (1000cc V-twin) motorcycle, my E90 seems so smooth. And of course I can't even compare any one of those with my Track bike, a totally different kind of animal.
