I have owned this bike for 3 years after purchasing it from my Father, the previous owner. He had too many bikes and not enough butts to ride them all at the same time. I am now in the same situation plus I have twin sons. Unfortunately with one other bike, the boys and plenty of hobbies it has only been ridden around 3,500 miles this year. I service and maintain the bike. I am dealer trained and and have changed the fluids every 3K to 6K miles (depending on trips) and adjusted valves every 6K miles. The bike runs great and recently did a trip to the BMW MOA rally in Billings. The bike has heidenau tires on it with around 8000 miles on them to date. They still have plenty of miles left in them. The bike is setup with Early Jesse Boxes and I also have the tool box and matching top case from Jesse. I have an extra set of Hepco Becker crashbars for it and it has Touratech bars on it now. I bought the touratech bars used on ebay because I would hit my shins on the H&B bars. The bike has been tipped over a few times - all while stationary and always with crashbars and the jesse boxes on it. the boxes only show a little scuffing on the bottom edges. the bike is pictured with the red solo seat, I also have a Russel Day long set for it and a Wunderlich set for it(set being front and back.) It has the cat eliminator and a Remus muffler on it and I have the stock cat and muffler in storage.
