He's had this bike, a 1959 BMW R69 since 1960 so it's been in my life as long as I can recall

Re: not on the KGT today

Beautiful bike, Steve. I've only had my 1969 R60US since about 1972. Geez ... I've owned that bike for 38 years? Good grief! Still looks and runs great, too.

Who made that gas tank? Is that a Heinrich ??

Re: not on the KGT today

as an update, a mere 2 weeks after getting his R69 MOT'd my uncle succumbed to his cancer and died. My world is an emptier place as he was the closest I've know to a Father.

RIP Les you'll always be remembered!

I am very sorry to hear of your uncle's passing, especially after hearing of the role he played in your life.
