BMW R90S: mileage of almost 400,000 km - 09.09.2019
Almost ten times around the world!
The BMW R90S from Peter Simms in the UK has an incredible 386,000 kilometers on the clock. How To Cars tells the story behind it. Peter Simms from the United Kingdom has achieved with his BMW R90S a huge mileage: 386,000 kilometers! That's almost ten laps around the world! The R90S came on the market in 1973 and revolutionized the image of Bavaria for the second time. The predecessor series had already trumpeted with wild colors, now came performance. The BMW R90S had 67 hp, including a five-speed gearbox and a disc brake. So she not only kept on the data sheet with the competition of Kawasaki, Honda and Harley-Davidson. The R90S accelerated from 0 to 100 in 4.8 seconds and ran 200 km / h top. That made her one of the fastest production motorcycles of her time.
Reason for the mileage: a love story.
Peter Simms bought his R90S in 1987. The idea of fulfilling a patient's dream of life "leave" led the nurse to the Netherlands together with a friend and said patient. There the trio stayed overnight with a distant acquaintance, Inneke. Between Simms and Inneke it sparked so violently that the Briton traveled to the Netherlands at every opportunity to the wedding. Three years in the wind and weather and always on the bike! The machine was busy collecting kilometers and, according to Simms in this Youtube video about his bike, is running better and better with every meter. The secret to the exorbitant mileage, according to several video comments, is regular and extensive maintenance. A writer jokes even if it would not be time for the first inspection after 386,000 kilometers.
