Thanks, that must have been a lovely area where you've been! BMW certainly had some nice models in the 70s & 80s. I was looking at those as well and you can still find them driving around occasionally. The current GS models are also tempting but the prices...
I haven't had that many long range trips yet and was mostly riding in my local area. Last year at least 50% of the time I spent with the bike was actually maintenance. Now that it's in good shape again and passed the TÜV with not issues last week I'm certainly planning some more trips again this summer and I'll be happy to share some impressions of that!
I'm trying to bring an '82 KZ750 LTD back to life. I bought it last Oct. It was mostly complete just needs a good cleaning and going through. If you put "FB Marketplace is evil" in search it should show the thread of its ongoing rebuild.
I've been living in Tucson AZ since I left Germany. Tombstone with it's OK Corral and Boot Hill is about 100 miles away. It's not just a movie! LOL. (BTW, Dodge City , Think "Gunsmoke" and Marshal Dillon, is real too in Kansas with its own Boot Hill).
I don't have a plan and I'm sticken' to it! '77 KZ 650 / 750 GPz custom project in progress
