RE: New guy message..

  Run, don't walk from pre-1997 Oilheads. Transmissions are a MESS. I had
TWO go out in 60K. BMWNA finally made a deal with me to pay 1/2 for the
"M-97" transmission. Unless the transmission has been replaced with an
"M-97" I say don't buy it. Now you'll hear from a bunch of people that will
say "not my bike". Lucky them, but there are WAY too many sad endings to
these early Oilhead transmissions. A new transmission, even at 1/2 price (if
you can get BMWNA to make you that offer) is just too much money to risk.
