Top Five All Time Favorite Production bikes. Second of Five. BMW R100GSPD

I’m going to go ahead and get this curve ball out of the way early.  I know more than a few of you might be scratching your heads a bit but hey it’s my list and I freely admit that I have some inconsistent taste in bikes. I like em all.

Well, “back in the day”, a South Florida dealer was clearing out old stock and had a sweet deal on a “Bumble Bee” black and yellow R100GS as the oilheads were on their way and he needed floorspace. I kick myself to this day for passing on it. Yeah I know the Bumble Bee wasn’t a Paris / Dakar model but I kick myself just the same. The R100GSPD was the penultimate model in the air cooled GS lineup and in my mind THE class defining Adventure bike. I think I may own one yet.


  1. I knew just what I wanted when I walked into the dealer, and still have that ’93 PD, red and white with the mud splat decals.
