Greetings From Ohio

Post by krustybus »

Hello fellow BMW lovers!
My name is Kirk...I live in Northern Ohio...I've been into motorcycling for a long time, but I have only been into BMW's a few years now.
As the picture below might indicate, I seem to have a problem now.
1964 60/2
1968 60/2
1969 60US
1975 90S
1978 100RS MS
Looking forward to all the knowledge of this forum to help me keep them all on the road.
I hope to find some local riders to hang out with over the next year too.
My other big hobby is also aircooled...VW buses.

So when did you begin assembling that fine collection of yours? I'm from western PA and it seems almost every BMW that comes up for sale in my region is from Ohio. I've made the trip west many times to look at a few /2's and 69s as well as a slew of 70's beamers and Honda's. Made a trip up through Ohio to Lake Michigan back in November to bring home an R100RS which is the most modern bike i've purchased in a decade.

We've got some of the best country roads over in my neck of the woods that you could ask for and I'm always up for a cruise! 15 bikes in the stable and I'd rather ride the /2 than all the rest combined. :)
64' R60/2 - 66' R27 - 51' R67 - 68' R69S
88' R100RS - 06' K12R

Gone...but not forgotten...

Grew up in Springfield, remember watching all the B-52s in and out of Wright-Pat. Neighbor was an Ohio ANG F-86 Pilot who gave me a ride on the back of his Suzuki X6 Hustler; next ride on the back of a friend's R75/5 in California years later.

Fast forward to my first bike, a '77 R60/7 with a Luftmeister Fairing, the an R100RT, followed by a K75S, K1100LT, and two different R1200Cs. I still have a '98 R1200C and a '77 R100S with an RS fairing on it.

When I lived in Westerville what I remember is Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid-Ohio and laps on the track following a "donation" to the AMA! Almost got ran off the track (on my cruiser) by an idiot on his Goldwing who dove in front of me on a corner...thank god for ABS!
