Selling the Wing

Postby twocams » Mon Sep 26, 2016 10:16 pm



I went back to the "Dark Side". I just bought another BMW, 1992 R100RT( airhead). An its 200 lbs lighter than the Wing. And dont need 4 bikes. The bad thing is the Insurance is killing me, to insure 4 cars and 4 bikes. If im going to have them around I want to have them Insured to ride when I want. :roll:
So If anyone needs a 85 GL1200A or 2003 K1200GT let me know :D

I can understand wanting a bike that is lighter than a wing it is one of the reasons I got the might ST 1300 and thinking of replacing my 1500 wing with something with less weight. good luck selling your 1200 wing

My whole family is on BMW's. Between my brothers and nephews there are 6 of them. I have about 1000 miles on my SEi so far and my # 1 gripe is weight. One wrong move at low speed and you are in trouble! I'm a 270 lb construction worker but I can barely push the beast. My brother Bert calls it the Hondapotamus... :lol: :lol:

TC, what is the older BMW on the right? R60, R69 my one brother has a '69 R60, lightly customized. Cool bike but hard for me to kick. I have to stand on the left side to kick it.

Sorry to hear you are selling the GW, understand dilemma. Nice footboards though.

Cheers

Thanks for the sympathy everyone. I guess," you feel my pain".
The Beemer on the right is a 1969 R69S. Took me 2.5 yrs. to refurbish. BMW hot rod of the 1960s.
And yes the floor boards do look kool. :shock:
