My 1973 BMW R75/5 has arrived, safe and sound after its journey from Tennessee to Utah this weekend.

I shipped with this shipper that I found through uShip:

He was on time (early, in fact), and had excellent communication throughout the process. I'd recommend him.

The bike is as advertised, so I'm happy with the purchase. Battery is low, so I didn't have a chance to start it up yet (and I'm just back from a hiking trip in CO and too exhausted to do anything with it yet). Bike will probably sit until the weekend when I'll have time to dig in and play a bit. For now it is safely ensconced in my garage next to the Tunebug.

Luckily the picture isn't too close. In the photo I'm just back from a 4-day hiking trip in Colorado and was looking a bit scruffy. The hats help. :smile:
