And so:-


The BMW is now working.

The BMW at Tintagel

It is fast enough for motorway driving, light enough for backroads and is reliable by design. Although it is 35 years old now.

Quotes from May 2018
It was an impulse buy. I had started to restore my very rusted 1984 BMW R65LS and it was dawning on me that, with the time I could spend on it, this would be a 1-2 year project. During that time I had no bike. So I thought how about getting a little runaround
But it’s probably a two year project and I really want something to ride in the meantime. Hence the Bullet.

It is time to say goodbye to the Bullet.
I will be sad to see it go.  I have always liked big singles. It has filled a gap, and got me back into motorcycling.  Prior to getting it I had not ridden a motorcycle for almost fifteen years!
