BMW R1100S rider ‘John Lyon’ recently added a few great pictures to the Pelican Parts Forum for this bike. And this time it was not just a photo of his bike, he managed to upload a picture of an R1100S meeting somewhere in 2006. Nice work, John!

I don’t like the name of this machine, but I can see where it’s coming from – and “black” is certainly appropriate. It’s a nice picture of a nice bike, though, so I wanted to keep a reference to it on this blog…
