BMW R-Series description

You are looking at a 1961 BMW R27. This is a numbers matching bike which means the frame number, engine number, and VIN plate number all match. The bike has its original tool kit bag, tools, BMW workshop rag, tire pump, instruction manual, spare parts manual, and repair manual. I found this bike sitting in the same family since 1975. I was able to shoot two videos of the bike running but I am still going to list her as a non running project since the carb needs still needs adjusted. Tires have barely been used. Bike has low miles of 3921. There is a Florida title for the bike. This is a rare bike so don't miss out! I will now let my slideshow and video I provided in the listing do the talking. You must use a regular computer or laptop to see the slideshow and video.  They will not show up with apps, phones, or some tablets. Click on the view all tab at the bottom of the slideshow to see all the pictures.

 This is a NO RESERVE auction. No warranties expressed or implied , and a as is where is sale. Feel free to have the motorcycle inspected if you like.  All sales are final, and there are no refunds or returns, and inspections are recommended. Bike comes with a title from previous owner.  Full payment is do within 7 days after the auction has ended. Buyer must also contact me within 2 days after the auction has ended to set up a time for payment and pickup. Bike must be picked up in Tampa FL. As long as the bike is paid for in full within 7 days after the auction has ended, then she can sit here for up to two months, but would like it picked up as soon as possible. Please look at all of the pictures, including the slideshow pictures, and ask all questions before bidding as I will be happy to answer them.  Thank you and happy bidding!

Michelin Unveils New Tire for Dual Sport Motorcycles

Wed, 06 Feb 2013 00:00:00 -0800

More than half of the new BMW R 1200 GSs that roll off the assembly line in 2013 will be fitted with Michelin’s new big trail tire, the Anakee III. BMW and Michelin worked together to co-develop the dual-sport tire, which is designed to deliver all the safety and off road capability big trail motorcycle users demand. The Anakee III will also be available as a replacement option for other leading dual sport bikes, like the Suzuki V-Strom, Kawasaki KLR, Triumph Tiger and Yamaha Super Tenere.

BMW Helps Vertically Challenged

Tue, 02 Dec 2008 00:00:00 -0800

No matter where they go or what they do, it seems that people who are vertically challenged always get the ‘short’ end of the stick, pardon the pun. Historically, if a pint-sized person wanted to get into the hobby of motorcycling, their choices were limited to bikes like the Suzuki Marauder, Ninja 250 or HD Sportster (the thought alone makes my back hurt.) BMW Motorrad now has good news for riders who either need or simply prefer a lower seat height, but do not want to compromise on model choice. BMW is the first motorcycle manufacturer to launch a range of models that can be ordered from the factory with lowered suspension – to provide customers with low seat height options.
