    1974 R90/6, bought new.  This photo in 1976 after being slightly modded from touring to sport for running the foothills of Northern CA.  Rode it over from Louisiana after college.

    So, what forks and brakes are those on the Toast?  They don’t look like a /6 retrofit.

    My first bike was an ACE100 Hodaka, but my first, and only, BMW is a 2001 R1150GS – haven’t seen a better bike yet!   This picture is near Paradise, MI on Whitefish Point at the Shipwreck Museum – nice riding in the U.P.

     New to the club, my first bike is the 1998 R1200C next to my wife’s first bike the 2003 F650 CS.  The photo is with my mom, dad, brother and his wife on the great sand bar in the Keweenaw, Upper Peninsula Michigan.  Awesome Lake Superior in the background.

    Our first BMW was this 1982 R100.  It used to have a Luftmeister fairing.   We did several two up trips on this motorcycle before my wife decided to pilot her own.

    My very first motorcycle ride was in 1969 as a 10 year old passenger on my cousin’s R50/2.  It must have made an impression on me.  Any motorcycles drawings I created from then on included a roundel on the tank. LOL!

    Former HD rider here with a new to me 2002 R1150RT. It was time to switch it up to something completely different. I took a break from motorcycling for 16 years so it’s taking some time getting back in the saddle. Loving this machine so far.

    Only joined the Munich clan back in ’01, buying an 1150GS for all the forest roads here in the middle of the Colorado Rockies.

    At the top of Guanella Pass with the Continental Divide in the distance…

    My first new bike was an ’81 R65.  I don’t have any photos of it.  But a friend gave me his ’81 R65 a few years ago (it wasn’t running and had 170k miles on it!), and I’m loving it again!
