Flickr user “Classic Dreams” has an extensive collection of pictures from all kinds of classic motorcycles. The albums are about bikes from Indian, Z├╝ndapp, Harley-Davidson, BMW, and more – even Ducati makes the list ;-)

And sure enough, the BMW R1100S is one of the subjects. Classic Dreams‘ photos of the R11S do a great job of illustrating the elegance of this particular model. Here’s a sample illustration of the lightness that the design of this bike projects, with the rear wheel perfectly and fully visible when looking at the left side of the motorcycle. A fine bike, yes indeed, shown off perfectly in these excellent pictures!

This is just one of the pictures in the R1100S album of ‘Classic Dreams’ (click on the picture to see them all)

It’s clear that the BMW R1100S is indeed a classic bike, at least in the eyes of “Classic Dreams” – and in mine, of course ;-)

The weather is not yet perfect, but I have taken out my bike for a couple of little rides the last few days. It’s nice to be back on two wheels, in preparation of the summer and the extended bike trips I already have planned. Fun when riding a bike, that’s what this picture I found on Flickr also shows:

I know it’s already April, but I did not want to publish the low solar energy production numbers of March on April 1st. Many readers might have thought I was joking, and that is not the case. Here’s why: March only produced 133.760 Wh of electricity, and that is just a fraction above last years March numbers and 25% below what I expected. Let’s just hope that this is not setting a trend for the future.

Another update is worth mentioning, at least for users and fans of the Samsung Galaxy S7: I was able to install the March 1, 2019 Security patch and the assorted updates on March 26th. This is what your S7 should tell you about its software, at least here in Belgium:
