Default My 1975 R75/6 BMW, named George

I bought it new in 1976. Stored it in 1977 until I came back from Germany in 1980, and again from 1986-1989. Put over a hundred thousand miles on it between.

It had a Vetter fairing and Krauser bags. I did a thousand miles in one day on it, in 1987. My last few years in the Army were hard, at every opportunity I would climb on "George" and escape.

In 2000 after I had my stroke and lost the use of my right hand, my wife sold it, she was afraid that I would kill myself on it. The right thing, I guess, but still I cried!

Nothing makes a person freer than a motorcycle!
