For the serious BMW R80G/S and R65 global aficionados, a 40th birthday party has been announced. In the convoluted and twisted world of words, motorcycle affiliations and clubishness, the attendees (aka "beemerphiles") to this one time confab will be convening in the small town of "Harleysville" Pennsylvania.

Details at www.r80gs.org

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder it's said. One G/S amazingly went for $38,500. USD at the Mecum Auction January 22-26, 2019 in Las Vegas, and it was not 100% concours. "Simply amazing!" one collector was heard to comment after dropping out of the bidding at $16,000 USD.


My 1981 R80 G/S, ridden hard and often put away wet, with over 240,000 miles on it and donated to BOB'S BMW Museum, will be on display at the R80GS Anniversary Party next to a stock 1981 R80G/S that BOB'S also has on display.
