BMW 1979 R100T Off Road?
Im setting out soon for RTW, Europe>>> Far East
I like to go out of the way whever i am, and know that ill find myself in some pretty wild places. I;m expecting the occasional foray on some hairy dirt 'roads' you know the kind, they are more like waterfalls when its raining....
And then there will be the long long dirt tracks of central asia.
But these extremes will most likely be less of the trip than the paved roads of europe and asia. And this bike is such a joy to ride on pavement...
My bikes a 1979 BMW R100T, equipped with new heavy duty Progressive shocks and a complete rebuild. I love this bike, its very light for its power, and it fits like a dream. Ive ridden it on mountain dirt roads in New Mexico, and it felt fine, but that was well maintained roads with an unloaded bike.
Anyone think its completely crazy to consider taking this bike offroad? Anyone doing/done it?
btw, im selling this bike in us before i leave. Have decided to buy a used bike in Germany, and am trying ti decide whether to go with another r100 or to go with an F650.
