Here from the south of the Netherlands (Dommelen).
Finally made it, as fast as the bike runs now (not....)

The beemer history started with a R80GS long time ago, had it for 3 years.
Some years ago bought a K100RT, sold to get a K1100LT.
Last spring sold that one, got a project, my bro his K75S.
Now it's mine, still wrestling with the bugger to get it running.

So here's my line-up, started 22 years ago;
Honda CB550
Zundapp K80 watercooled 1984
Suzuki GT380
Honda GL500 Silverwing
Honda CB550 caferacer
Suzuki GT380
BMW R80GS
Suzuki GSX550ES
Suzuki X7 (GT250)
Jawa 640 Red Style
Yamaha FZR1000 exup streetfighter 1991 (still have)
BMW K100RT 1986
BMW K1100LT 1993
BMW K75S 1987 07/1987 K569 K 75 S (0572) USA (have now)

Hi wheeldigger good to have you along for the ride.
I know a guy that had that many bikes in a 12 month period, I think he is still paying them off after 22 years and he doesnt even own any of them anymore.

I always pay the bikes first, so it can't be me Razz 

My list could be longer, as I had a SR250 and a X7, but they never run.
And more bikes i had....

Pics will follow as it is dark now.
Special thanks to my dear friend who sold it to me

Hey Arlina, at the end of the day it is the same you that has been on this forum for a long time, but I'm glad that you and your country have recognised your true identity. I wish you well. However, we are all here because of our love of the BMW K series and how it affects our lives in so many ways and that is what is most important and it really doesn't matter if you are rich or poor, male or female, healthy of unwell, old or young - it is the love of the bike that draws us all together. Ride on and live life to the full. If people don't "get" you, that's their loss, not yours.
