I lived off Far West / Mopac for 2 years. Many trips down 2222 from Mopac to 620. Lime Creek I agree, super technical for a leisure ride.

I am glad you were not hurt too badly.
I spent Saturday trying out my new SV650 track bike at Summit Point Motorsports park. It is a whole new ballgame when you only have 73HP instead of the 140HP my R1 has. Nothing like having the throttle wide open with your knee down.

I don't ride. Would love to. But, well, I don't.

But, being a casual fan, this is a very cool video if you have not seen it: Keanu Reeves talks about motorcycles and his favorites...

Thinking about buying a project. Guy I know in FL has 2 BMWs for sale. 1 is a 1980 R65 that I should be able to pick up for pretty cheap, but, it hasn't been run in nearly 30 yrs. Will need a pretty full mechanical go-through, but is cosmetically in good shape.
He's also got a K75S, that I'd really like to grab, but not really in the budget right now. It pretty much only needs a simple tune up & fluids flushed, maybe a fuel pump.

Having the Indian in the garage, I'd still be able to ride (until my F-I-L) takes it home when they get moved to TX, while the R is torn down.

I had one that I sent to Europe for my Alps tours there. 45 HP at sea level, lets not talk about what that was at 9000+ feet. You need to rev it and the R45 and R65 have the same crank and different from the other models.

I think they still used steel cylinder liners, so watch out for rust. I can't remember when they switched to treated all aluminum cylinders (Nikasil, etc).
