Model(s): 1976 R75/6
Comments: excellent dealer (Bavarian Motorsport), some nearby BMW riders (10 within 10 kilometres, many are good wrenches with lotsa tools), good conversation, the best coffee on the planet. Toronto is the most multicultural city in the world -- everything available -- worth the visit. Be careful of streetcar tracks on main streets. Many good close B&Bs. Call first, before 20h30, daily. (The Beach is a century-old eastern part of Toronto, with a great boardwalk along Lake Ontario.)

Comments: Due to an unfortunate accident my K75RTA went to an early grave and I replaced it with a bike BMW should have built. Beemer riders still welcome. There are no Beemer dealers in Canada this side of London, but there are 2 in the Metro Detroit area. I have no garage space but some may be able to be arranged. I do have a good supply of tools and the "K" manual. I know the area intimately - both sides of the border and can provide navigational assistance for both Ontario and Michigan. There are some good twisty but flat roads in the area along the lakes. I can provide a futon for the night and a shower if necessary. Stop by for coffee and beemer babble or for a ride.
