Been riding BMWs since 20 when a buddy had a baby on the way and gave me a sweet deal on a 1977 BMW R75/7 with only 15k on the clocks.  Rode it to 70k.  By then I had purchased a 1966 R60/2.  Both parents were battling the big C, and well, one had to go.  I rode the R60/2 for my only transport for a couple years.

Post that?  A couple RS's, five R80G/S, one very snakebit R100GS (loathe 'em until this day).  Happily after 30 bikes, the R60/2 remains along with a beater R100RS sans faring but with 44 liter tank and F650 Paris-Dakar bars.  The perfect go anywhere twin rear shock twin.

Welcome Aboard !

I rode Triumphs for longer than I want to admit. Now I wished I had converted sooner. I love not being tethered by an invisible 100 mile riding radius. 

Owning an old Airhead is easy.
Keeping an old Airhead running great is the true test.

Other than two Ducati's in the fold, a 750 Monster (that was built, and traded for a R100RS) and a 900SS SP #13 from the factory.  But... air cooled BMWs always shared berthing space with 'em.  And we know who lasted year in, year out.
