A nice reader ride “Wanderlust” BMW R100S


Bob Writes in:
Love the site, always one of the first I visit every morning with my coffee- kudos to you!
 But I thought I’d send in a pic of a barn-find I snagged last year.
It’s a 1977 BMW R100S in the hills by my house here in Colorado… and obviously, I dig it!
It’s my daily driver and after a fair amount of work (after sitting for years) it runs like a champ!
 Cheers! And keep up the good work!

Wow!  that is some “barn find”!  As a Florida native I get so jealous of you folks living in the hills.  Great stuff!

 

A Nice Fathers Day ride on the Trusted DR Motard.


A Spectacular day n my old and faithful DR65 motard.  Even though Northeast Florida is no twisty  mecca with elevation changes we still have a few nice scenic loops here and there.  For my Fathers day getaway I took the river road (SR13) south from Jacksonville and cut over some wide open farmland through St Augustine and back up the coast road (A1a).  It’s actually a really nice 100 mile loop with plenty of places to stretch your legs along with some excellent eateries and watering holes along the way.  I really need to get out there more often.  It’s a LOT nicer than I generally give it credit for.  Anyway these were spur of the moment with an old camera phone.  Sorry about that.  Next time I’ll “show it off” a little better than this.  If you’re ever around Northeast Florida and want to go for a nice loop drop me a line and I’ll get you the routes.

 

And Happy Fathers Day to all you dads out there.  I hope you got out for a ride!
