Isn't that the East German version? Did you sneak it out when your government fell?

No, but I believe the hated French police rode them.

Aren't BMWs ridden pretty much exclusively by homosexuals?

No, that would be Ninjas and Sportsters. BMWs are ridden by those who think for a living...or for leisure, or for any damn reason they want.

The Fonz also rode a Triumph, to his eternal pride.Man, would he have loved a Hinckley T595 fuel injected 955cc DOHC triple, with tubular alloy polished frame and stainless/carbon fibre full race exhaust.I bet he'd have ordered it in Strontium metallic as well. ;-)

Brando didn't know the meaning of the world shame much like Mr Oilver Read .
I last time I was at Daytona was 99 when H/D did a big balled come back , and even I was towed along with the masses willing them to take victory the next day . But their rider I think it was DuHamel got his jaw broke in some seady bar the night before the big race and H/D when home with their heads hug ,it was such a bummer the whole joint was getting ready to yell ' America FUCK YEAH ' instead they all left going mumble mumble don't even remember who won , but the Britten from NZ was pulling some wild power stand down the main drag so the weekend was saved for me . But they do look cool ,
the best being the 750 flat tracker .

Heh thats kinda funny. While on vacation a few months ago my family and I were going somewhere on the freeway and there were two newer BMW motorcycles next to us cruising with their cute little luggage on the sides. My wife made a comment that the bikes weren't all that attractive and my response was that those are fag bikes. Good to know I'm not the only one that observes this.

My fave FF helmet is a Shoei DuHamel replica in yellow and purple (matches my Triumph) with an iridium visor. Most of the time I use my Shoe CHiPs open face though, especially on my chop or Super Tenere.

John Britten was a mechanical genius and is sadly missed.

We used to race a BMW Boxer in the classic series-'The Pink Pig'-shame I can't post photos.
