Many moons ago, I managed to publish the picture of a weird but funny motorcycle: the Cowasaki.

The Cowasaki

But two weeks ago, BoingBoing upped the ante and pointed its readers to the_van_man__, an American gentleman who showed off his motorcycle while transporting a horse. OK, he needs a sidecar to do so, but let’s be honest: that’s weirder and funnier than the Cowasaki!

Great Bike, Great Picture

Much as I like the BMW R1100S, this picture first and foremost drew my attention because it is an excellent picture. It’s an excellent portrait of a great bike.

The BMW R1100S isn’t exactly a new bike, but even today it has its fans (like me!). Some of them can be found found over at the Pelican Parts fora. Here’s a recent addition of a very nice R1100S – I love the blue paint, and the seat looks quite comfy!

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…

Who says you can’t go on a big motorcycle tour with a BMW R1100S ? Here’s proof that it can be done:

My admiration of the R1100S motorcycle should be clear to any reader of this blog. Even today, I think back to mine from day to day. If it weren’t for my back and hip issues, I would probably still own and ride it.

I’ve shown a picture of a similarly modified BMW R1100S before: street-fighter handlebars and a windscreen extension turn it into a different proposition.

And then wonder: why did I not convert mine to such a form, rather than trade it for the F800GT ? Well, there’s no use crying over spilt milk – but I would love to ride an R1100S with a street-fighter handlebars for a day or so!
