On Saturday I said goodbye to my "Big Silver Cow".
I want to thank everyone on the forum for all of their help over the years.
If it wasn't for the research I did here before buying, I probably wouldn't have made the purchase. The amount of confidence and skill I gathered working on her with all of your help kept her in pristine condition.
As my wife can no longer ride, and I have my Buell to still get around on, it was just time for a new hobby.
I bought a 1975 MG without an engine and trans., and I'm swapping in a Ford 302 and 5 speed. My wife and I anticipate many miles of adventures in the new beast, (once I rebuild it from scratch LOL). We really enjoyed the BMW and we're going to miss her. Rarely did we go anywhere without someone coming over to talk about the bike. Thanks again all.
I'll be hanging around to enjoy your company. humour, and occasional rant.
btw: I still have a few odds and ends around that I will post in the classifieds at some point. (Tank Bag, Powerlet to cigarette adaptor, stock rear pegs, cup holder, and one intercom cable)
