:shock: 70000miles on the BCR! Come on tell us more about this bike! What`s been done, what`s had to be done. highs and lows ?

Remarkable.

The ode was ok too

[smilie=hmm.gif] Nearly, but not quite. You need to restrict yourself to 17 syllables in a 5-7-5 formation over three lines and invoke some element of nature. My best shot would be:

I will soon go poo
With loo roll in short supply
I search for dock leaf

You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Bought the bcr new from South London bmw dealer love on 1st sight.
I just used the bike for work, ride outs when off, and trips abroad.
When the milage reached 60 thousand I bought a 2nd hand 2006 K1200r(hooligans bike) to take the milage & winter ride hit from work.
I put the normal extras on the bcr, power commander, lennies induct & San Jose Air filter. The belly pan was resprayed & re stickered a few years back, as it was showing some paint damage & letting the overall good appearance of the bcr down.
Never had any real problems with the bike, other than a cracked brake master cylinder, which was caused by another bike knocking mine over on a "rough" ferry crossing, the starter motor played up & the cause was a metal plate internally coming free & shorting out, giving a flat battery/iffy starter motor symptons.
Got the bcr out this Wednesday after a 4 month lay up, And guess what? The gearbox blew up!
Brian at BGMBMW where the bcr was recovered too said it was the drive shaft or something similar (I was still in shock & tears!) to take the diagnosis in fully, but he told me it was a fairly common problem on the 1100s.
So if anyone knows of a good 2nd hand gearbox going, please get in touch....
The K1200r was sold to work colleague last September and probably what will be my last new bike was purchased, a wait for it, Triumph 1200xca explorer! Stop booing at the back!
I did look at the GS's but just couldn't bond with them.
I hopefully will get the bcr back, good as new. Because I will taking it to the grave with me, just love it's looks.
