BobNob's new ride (with pics)
« on: June 19, 2007, 05:08:52 pm »
Hi

Yes yes I know its way over due!

But what can I say - if you wanna own a BMW you have to work hard!

Anyways got it last week (already had to most hectic rain ride ever - it was like a cloud burst on my day old baby!!!)

So here are some pics...







and then finally here is a pic of my bike and i



must say i'm enjoying the bike

still running her in but i really enjoy the bike - must say that it is the most noisy motor i have ever heard in my life!

and going at speed it sounds like a sewing machine - but its mine and i luv it  O0

I know some dealers will fit your choice if you request it. As long as they don't have to pay in of course.

That's does not look like Metzeler Tourance.

Congrats!! ;D

Wish you many many safe and joyful miles. 8)

Those tyres are Metzeler Sahara 3's.

Good tyre, you'll get about 8000km from the rear with a lazy throttle hand.

Be careful of the words you say.
