2 BMW motos, same year, so different.
« on: March 24, 2020, 10:51:26 AM »
These are so different that I can't believe they were made by the same outfit. both 94's. Well, the 3 spoke rims look similar, butts I'm liking the radials on red.

I felt the same way about the Tacoma and the Prius.  :laughing4-giggles:

How does the R perform at low speed—any noticeable surging?

I wept because I had no radials until I met a man who had no splines.

no, but it has a Dobeck TFI fuel injection module installed, so I guess it tamed the surging.
