Re: What was your first BMW?
My first BMW was a 1972 R75(I think that was the model), it was a 750cc, complete with full fairing, saddle bags and rear carrier. It cost $2200.00 back then (almost as much as I just spent for a 20,000 km service check, seal and clutch replacement). It was a lot of fun to ride, wish I had kept it. It was my 2nd bike and I thought it was so big, but compared to the 80cc Suzuki I had previously, I guess it was. I had it rigged up with a radio in the rear carrier and a loud speaker mounted inside the windshield...had to stop to change channels or adjust the volume. Sold it and bought a '76 R 90, 900 cc, with Windjammer Fairing, no bags, or anything fancy, although still a great bike. Now with my 2004 LT and the expensive repairs and service, I sure wish I had one of my old Beemers back, I never spend anything on either of them other than price of oil and filter and the occasional tire.
