Noisy and the amount of times i’ve nearly flipped over the handle bar when it decides to jam on a twig no bigger than a matchstick.

She did an episode at my work, well p1ss3d I missed her!
When night riding off road I used to listen to music..
It’s odd as when I had the music on, it made things spookier.
When you cant hear things it makes it worse as you then try harder to hear sounds between the beats/instruments/tracks etc.
I dont do it anymore as it freaked me out.
The story about the Bothy is feaky as feck!
I sold my lovely 130i a few months ago. Worst car decision i’ve ever made
Yep.. Still got mine after 10 years of ownership… Excellent car.
NA Inline 6, RWD, ohh and the sound! (especially with the factory BMWP intake and exhaust system 😉 )
