Because the pandemic, I do not trip a lot, however once I did it was at all times my Daytona Orange R90S. Immaculately maintained, I had been informed she was probably the most enjoyable to trip instance any one of many three mechanics I’ve had work on her throughout my time period of possession to this point.
Typical oil modifications and worth changes are my jobs, however each 2 years I’ve whomever probably the most devoted classic BMW mechanic I can discover in my closest main metropolitan space do a really main service.
The Dellorto carbs are past my pay grade, even tho I did the Bings on my haunted R75/6.
Fortunately, after transferring down the LA final 12 months I discovered Matt at Black Kat Motorwerks. He did a tremendous job and the bike ran higher than she ever had. I used to be utilizing her as my day by day driver till the worry of ending up in a hospital throughout a pandemic turned overwhelming.
I couldn’t park such a bike at my new house, the place my parking is fairly exposed in Venice Seaside, so I parked the bike, coated up and charging, subsequent to my mum or dad’s storage. Shaded by their 100-year-old pepper tree.
Pepper tree gave up in the entire shading factor final weekend. We’re very fortunate that it glanced off the storage and walloped my pretty bike, as an alternative of my mum or dad’s house.
The bike is insured. Matt at Black Kat picked her up as quickly because the tree was lower off her. She rolled into his truck, which shocked me.
