The engine, like all BMWs, loves oil. There were no problems with driving. The first motorcycle was my father’s Minsk M-106. The BMW looked very rich, stylish . The acquaintance himself soon bought himself a Yamaha R-1. 03/17/2011 From an early age, he was always bound by love for motorcycles. The BMW was bought in good condition, recently painted with high quality, with beautiful checkered appliqués. Plus, I plugged it all up with a foam rubber sponge so that it wouldn’t shake. And so only warm memories remained about the motorcycle. True, my love does not extend to BMW cars like that. I got used to it and coped without ABS.

He started riding when he was still quite a kid, not always having enough strength to hold the bike or put it on a leg. The motorcycle NEVER let me down https://cars45.com/listing/suzuki/alto/1996. He began to ride when he was still quite a kid, not always having enough. Sometimes, in order to get to something, you need to disassemble a third of the bike. For which I respect motorcycles of this brand.

From an early age, he was always bound by love for motorcycles. In management, especially on dalnyakah, the ride was comfortable. Changing the oil and filter takes a lot of time and nerves.
