In 1960, BMW sold an excellent sporting bike called the R69. It put out about 42 hp, was stable, and very comfortable. I never had an R69, but quite happily toured all over the Southwest with an R60, the standard BMW model. It never stranded me and always started on the first kick. At 5000 feet it put out a little over 25 hp. The first Volkswagen I drove was a '65. It cruised at 55 or 60 mph, kept me dry, and had an okay heater (if you watched the fan ducts and kept them from tearing). It also had 25 hp.
210 hp on a motorcycle just doesn't compute in my paradigm...
I'm watching him right now... with my kid. Patchy is my favorite. Oh yeah, engine and manly stuff... Hopefully the bike won't be fugly!On 2006-11-29 22:02, DrEnglish wrote:
