This is the list of bikes I own or owned in the past. I was riding some of them for years and thousands of kilometers, and others were sold within a short period of time, mostly because I figured out pretty soon that they won't keep me happy over time. For many bikes I just have paper pictures and I guess it will take some time until I can motivate myself to scan and publish them. By the way, the list is not chronological.

BMW R1200 GS

25 years ago BMW Motorrad invented the travel enduro segment and has been its clear leader ever since. Now it's time to set new standards again - with the BMW R 1200 GS. This motorbike continues the tradition of being the truly ideal on and off-road bike. At the same time it launches a completely new era of dynamic performance. The BMW R 1200 GS differs considerably from the previous model: weight has been reduced by a tangible 12% and engine output has been increased by 15%. Combined with numerous new features such as the new BMS-K engine electronics, Single Wire System and an info LCD panel it will easily become the best BMW travel enduro of all time, just as it will easily reach the very remotest corners of the earth. It's precisely controlled power output makes it shine off-road. On-road, its agility will take your breath away.
