Hello Warren! I am in the Pacific Northwest (Chilliwack, near Vancouver). I am almost at startup stage on my own R60/6. It looks different than yours, though, with a Parabellum fairing and R75/6 engine. I wish I still had the original block. In my younger, stupider days I let it out of my grip...

I admired your photos. Very nice bike. I am sure it is a joy to ride. Sometime when my bikes look good enough I will upload pix too!

I also have an R60/2, original with 30,000 miles..

Hello Ken,
I haven't been on this site in awhile and noticed your post. Thank you for your comments. Yes, the R60 is a joy to ride. I completed a "frame up" restoration on her last winter doing all the work except paint and striping. Even though I have an 07 R1200RT which is a great ride, the simplicity of the R60 amazes me. I've thought about finding a /2 myself. I love the look of the older plunger frames. P.S., you should post some pictures of your bike, I'm sure it looks great.

Take care, Warren
