    hey my name is Trach. I live in New Orleans. I have come to MF in hopes to gain some information about a BMW I discovered in the back of my warehouse. The hand tapped ID plate on the gooseneck behind the headlight casing is a 7 digit number and doesn't seem to correlate with any of the VIN...

  4. BMW
    Hello all, I've been riding a Honda Nighthawk 250 for about a little over a year and i've been yearning for a little more power and a little more refinement. Also ABS and anything else to make the bike safer would be nice. I've narrowed my search down to two bikes: the BMW F800R or the...

    I'm new to this site mainly because I'm looking to sell a 2005 BMW K1200S. My fiance's father gave her and me to sell so we can use the money to help with our wedding. I'm not much of a motorcycle guy. (My limited experience includes a flip over the handlebars on my buddy's dirt bike.)...

    A little help please? I just purchased a 1995 R1100R and it will not cruise at a constant speed it seems to cut out at a constant 65 or 70mph. If i give it throttle it responds but other wise it is not right. I was thinking the fuel filter or spark plugs. The bike idles fine.

    Hello to all, i just purched a 1995 R1100R BMW. it drives fine most of the time but at a constant speed around 65 to 70 mph the bike seems to cut out or miss. If i give it some throttle it responds good. also idle fine. I have not checked the spark plugs yet?
  8. First Bike / New Rider
    Hey All, I'm looking at getting my first bike. I really like the look of classic bikes with the flat seats, and like the old Honda CBs and BMW R series, but that poses a few concerns as 1. I'm tall and am a little concerned about seat height. but more importantly 2. I worry about the older...
  9. Sport Bike As First Bike
    Hello friends! This is my first topic here, and I start with a question! I've just finished taking my bike license and now I need to buy my first bike! I've been looking for ages for the right bike, and I must say that Triumph's new-old classics hit number one, specially the Scrambler and the...
  10. First Bike / New Rider
    Hey, thanks for helping. I'm looking for my first bike, mostly for commuting and getting around the city. The problem is I'm 6'5 and am picky about the look of the bike. I've read lots of post suggesting a dirtbike or larger sportbike, and i like their more upright riding position but i just...
  11. BMW
    i was in Paris a few weeks ago and i saw a bmw that had similiar styling to the r32 and the r51/3. Obviously no ones gonna ride a r32 on the streets. It looked and sounded modern. (less than 10 years old) painted flat black. i think it was a 1 cylinder did bmw ever release a retro bike with...

  15. BMW
    I have a maintenance question which I have asked many people and have not been able to get a good response to, so here it is: I have a 1996 1100 BMW GS. It hesitates when I give it throttle. This started only when I put the motor under a lot of stress, I.E. opening it up from 80 to 90 with two...

    Sure they're very affordable and for the most part maintained well, but with VERY high miles. I've read that because of the engine size that the oil is not sent quickly enough through the engine when (this is almost certain to happen all the time) the cop accelerates way too quickly from a...
