So the time finally came for me to pick up an airhead of my own – a 1986 BMW R80 RT no less. The seller was located in the ACT and so I enlisted the aid of my close riding mate, Cambo. Armed with a ute and trailer we headed down on a Thursday night and picked up the big old girl.
What a heavy son of a bitch! With some effort, and a shit-tonne of ratchet straps, we had her secure and set off home. Constantly checking over our shoulders to see if she’d gone with the wind, we were stoked to arrive in Brookvale and roll her into the workshop where she’d spend the night waiting for the next step.
A lot more to come on this one, very soon!
