Another BMW in the Garage…

This weekend was the Netley Marsh Eurojumble, held down near Southampton, I go every year as it is a great day out, but this year I camped there for the weekend, and while there  I bought a new bike, well it was delivered today, so my first chance to really get to see what I had bought, and as you can see it is a stunner. Sure there a couple of small items that will need sorting, Rear indicators, weeping master cylinder, being  the most urgent at this time, it also smokes quite badly when it starts, but that soon disappears when warm, I have heard this is quite common though, although I am not sure to what extent.
I intend to get it booked into the garage soon though, and get them to give it the once over, just to be sure all is well. They can also fit a new seal set to the master cylinder while it is there.

    Hi Kevin, thought it was the wheel deal bike for a minute, but this ones got more cylinders 😉
    This one looks really tidy. Hopefully engine wise there’s not too much wrong with it. Had a quick look for smoking problem, one reason seems to be leaving it on side stand for a bit and oil runs past the rings, then causing smoke on start up. It’s suggested using centre stand will reduce the problem? Cheers Iain
