I think what he was questioning was, will some of the parts for the
oilheads of K bikes be available in 30 years, especially some of the
electronic black boxes. Will BMW continue to make electronics that are
30 years out of date? How long before BMW decides there are not enough
old guys restoring airheads? Can't you just see the bean counters
thinking up ways to save money?
