BMW R1100S (2003)

In the summer of 2006, I was browsing the web and saw a picture of the the BMW R1100S. This was a bike that I always loved, the only BMW I liked in fact. At the time, I was riding a Yamaha FJR 1300 and while that was and is a wonderful bike, it wasn't for me. I was riding it too hard and abusing it too much. I only had that bike for a year, but it was time for it to go. Now, keep in mind I had always had a Japanese 4 cylinder bike and I had no idea if I could live with a boxer twin. But, a seed had been planted so I had to find out.

BMW K1200S (2007)

Late 2009, I was browsing the web again (I really should stop doing that, it gets expensive...) when I saw this bike. Mind you, I always loved the K1200S. I fell in love with that bike the day it was introduced in 2004. I even tried to close a deal for a brand new one back then, but despite a great deal from our dealership, I couldn't find a way to make it stick financially.
