I was looking for a sportsbike back in 1994 as I got fed up with the R80. On a lazy sunday I visited a veteran rally nearby and noticed several BMW singles. It reminded me of my first motorcycle experiences with my dad, and I decided to get one myself instead of a sportsbike! I bought it in 1995, for way too much money, and I owned it until march 2008. It didn't get much mileage in the end: less than 500 km a year, but it would always runs at first kick.
