    Since the mighty DR650 has moved one to a new owner a new old bike has taken up residence in the garage.

    Those who have ridden with me over the years won’t be surprised that I’ve gone back to an airhead BMW as this will be my 5th one.

    This is one is basically stock and will largely remain that way, though It will probably get some 20mm bar risers and different footpegs but that’s about it at this stage.

    That’s a good looking bike
    I really like my R80GS same colour but not as original

    The bike is in the shop today for a WOF, fingers crossed.

    In typical bmw airhead fashion I stopped at the gas station on the way to work and when I unlocked the petrol cap lock the lock mechanism came out with the key!

    Wow working on an airhead os so easy after the DR650.

    I had the seat, side panel and rear shock off, lubed the upper shock mount and reassembled in 20 minutes!
