BMW R100RS

A bike I owned once: a 1984 BMW R100RS "Last Edition".  Purchased from a friend, who was the second owner.  I was in mint condition; includes the bags, dual saddle, original tool kit, original BMW "trouble light", original air pump and more.  Here's a copy of the 1975 Cycle Magazine (RIP) road test of the first edition of the BMW R100RS.  I realized that I did not like the "up high and leaned over" riding position and I ended up selling it.  As far as I'm concerned, if I don't enjoy riding 'em, I don't enjoy owning 'em, no matter how beautiful! 

BMW R100RS Tires:  Tire sizes for the R100RS are the 3.25-19 front and 4.00-18 rear.  Modern size replacements are 100/90-19 front and 120/90-18 rear.  Tires are available in these sizes from Avon (AM18 F/R); Bridgestone (BT45); Continental (Blitz, TK11/TK12 F/R); Metzeler (ME33 front and ME99A rear); Michelin (Macadam 50 & 50E).  Metzeler recommends a 100/90-19 front and 4.00-18 rear.
