    My road king at the bottom. I took it apart and changed everything but the frame and engine.

    My shovelhead is undergoing a transformation right now in the corner of my shop. Im building a traditional
    bobber, making the tank right now then onto the rest of the sheetmetal. Check out 40 dcoe weber I fitted :)

    Ive had a little of everything but I really like my S1000. I have had multiple BMW's and was completely done with bikes till this one came up for sale and I just couldn't pass up the price. I have tried to like Panigales but they just aren't great road going motorcycles IMO.

    1994 BMW R1100RS "Beta Bike." A '93 model sold as a '94 the last months of '93. First oilhead and last Beemer without a cat. Modifications: 1999 R1100S front fork and bars, R1150R tubular Telelever a-arm, R1100GS suspension/shorter Paralever torque arm, R1150RS front wheel/abs wheel, K1200RS 6" wide rear wheel, center stand delete/welded up a paddock stand, and side stand lengthened 4". GSX-R 750 footpegs. Magnesium valve covers. Speedscreen tinted windscreen. Corbin seat. Period Luftmeister exhaust; sounds rorty as can be. No inseams shorter than 34" need apply. I also have a UniGo trailer for it, since I got rid of the bags. Since it's a solo bike, I plan to replace the rear seat with a second gas tank custom molded to blend into the bodywork and provide a butt stop, then make it all black. The only weak spot for touring is the range. Super comfortable for all 6'2" of me. I can put 500 mile days on it easy. One of a kind. Me and a buddy made it. He had the skills, I provided the bike and money. Vision is 100% mine. About 40 pounds lighter than stock, 4" taller than stock, wheelbase 2" shorter than stock. I'd never sell it. Here it is on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    How do you enjoy it. To me the classic of the newer Duke's.

    Well it's the last of the 888's and it's 24 years old now so it's funny to hear it referred to as "newer" but I know what you mean. It's awesome. It has that late 80's, early 90's Superbike feel and you really get that out of it. I can open the throttle all the way coming out of bends and it's great. It looks right, it feels right, it sounds right. It brings me back to my dreams in high school.

    Thanks Dan, me too. Had a fun 10 years and then the last two it's been serviced and cleaned but hardly ridden. Which is shameful-but I just can't let it go.

    My new to me 2009 WR250R. My mods are Protaper Carmichael bar w/Scotts damper kit, hand guards, full FMF with computer, 5 teeth larger aluminum rear sprocket, and Shorai lithium battery; and here she is in the snow a March Motto Madness. I only paid $2,500 for it w/650 miles on her and she was kept in a climate controlled warehouse under a tarp, didn't even have dust on her, and the FMF kit was used for like $300!

    I may get a 3 gallon tank but I like her being light.
