Quail Motorcycle Gathering and 1980 R80GS

Post by shaith »

Hi All,

I've been invited to participate in the 2021 Quail Motorcycle Gathering with 5 of my bikes. Actually, I was suppose to show these bikes at the 2020 Quail gathering but we all know what happened to that as well as all of our other BMW rides. 2020 was suppose to be the 50th Anniversary of the R75/5, which they will now be celebrating on May 15, 2021.

In any event, all of these bikes are what I call "Benchmark bikes" because they all represent significant developments in BMW Motorcycles. They are a R69S, R75/5, R90S, R100RS and K1. What is obviously missing is a R80GS which was certainly significant and started the "Adventure bike" style of bmw motorcycling. If there is anyone who is interested in bringing a 1980 R80GS to Carmel May 15, 2021 to exhibit it along with my bikes it would be fantastic. You may also want to consider the ride on Friday May 14, 2021, around the Monterey Pennunsila as well. Please let me know if anyone is interested.

Scott
