New Retro

I spotted this cool BMW R100S parked downtown and just HAD to snap a pic of it.

As I hopped out of the car, the owner walked up and I got to chat with him for a moment before he rumbled off down the road.

He bought the bike from someone who'd left it sitting out in the weather for the last few years. It'd deteriorated pretty badly, so the new owner has been putting a lot of time and effort into restoring it.

I got to ride one of these back around 1978. I can still feel it...

Shot with Canon G7, zoomed to 7mm, f3.2, 1/640th, iso 80.
