Looks nice Yeendy. Belly pan looks good. Crying out for black wheels though!

Your only up the road, I bet if you started up I could hear your Akra from here!

Hello forum!
I've driven older bulletproof BMWs from the start (E34 since 2009, E36 before that), so the proven boxer seemed to be a good starting point for me.
If the paper trail is to be believed, after yeendy, a Kawasaki dealership sold this bike to a guy in Estonia. I bought it from him in August 2015.
Got it a day or two after getting my licence. While learning to ride, I took 10 hours on an ER6 and the first 10 minutes on a 125cc MZ, so the S was (is) the third bike I've ridden.
Two months later this happened. Fixed that and had the ECU remapped. Changed an O2 sensor that the tuner found faulty.
Other than that it has been a pleasure to own and ride.
Changed all the fluids and brake pads, TB-sync, valve adjust, tires. Rear is 190/55 now, had to make a spacer for the K1200S(!) hugger.
Found a good deal on 630/642 Wilbers with supposedly 4k miles on them (looked brand new really) from UK ebay, a few other bits like ebay smoked lenses etc.
There are 2-3 of these bikes here and I managed to find a "correct" side headlight left over from this build.
Next up is the RT Telelever when I find the motivation.

At first I bought it mostly for commuting but shortly after I got to take the company car home, so the bike (and E34) are now purely for fun. Had my first trackday this summer and can't wait for the next.
