Cellular phone and Spanish BMWs

Folks ask me what I think of my new phone, but I don't really have a point of reference to compare to.  It's on Verizon's 4G, which I guess is good, but using an older version of Android which I guess is bad (gingerbread, not ice cream sandwich). The Google+ application works much better than the Facebook app which is slow and uncooperative to navigate. Words with Friends is still great and now portable.  After trying both, I prefer the kindle device to the kindle app, but I'm glad to have the capability to read from my amazon library anywhere. Getting email right away doesn't save as much time as I thought it might. Text message and IM threads are easier to manage, though.

What do you think of when someone says "BMW Motorcycle?" Stalwart high-mileage touring bikes and adventure bikes for crossing continents?  Maybe their swanky new sportbike?

Nice machines for sure, the coolest things to roll out of the Bavarian Motor Works on two wheels have got to be the older air-and-oil-cooled twins like the R100 and R75/5. Below are two beautiful bikes based on those models coming out of custom bike shops in Spain.

"Scram" from Fuel Bespoke Motorcycles 
CRD#14 from Cafe Racer Dreams
These Spaniards have found a formula that works for me. Old, but reliable engines dressed up just enough. Looks like fun.
