BMW R18 Extended Road Test: A Very Big Day In The Saddle!
BMW R18 Extended Road Test We were lucky enough to get our hands on the new BMW R18 cruiser so we thought we'd make the most of it and head off to Wales and the South West of England for the day, racking up 465 miles in the process. We tested the bike in every condition that we could find, from tiny coastal backroads to motorways and everyting in between. As an added bonus, the weather delivered all four different seasons in one day, too. It was the perfect day to really get to know the bike and see what it was made of. These are our thoughts on the BMW R18 in a simple, easy to read format - we'll be doing a Ride Out Blog shortly, too. Settle in and and enjoy.

Our Top Easy Mods for the BMW R9T
Customising your BMW R9T can seen like a daunting prospect at first, we understand that. You've spent good, hard-earned cash on a toy that you've been eyeing up for a while and want to turn it into your dream bike, but what if you don't have the space, a full toolbox or years of knowledge to attempt a full strip or ground up rebuild? Well we don't think it should stop you getting stuck in and having a tinker, starting with these mods which can be done at home in the shed, on the driveway or even in the street.
BMW R nine T - A Brief Model History
In 2014, and in-line with the growing trend of modern cafe racer culture, BMW decided that they would enter the foray of retro-look, customisable motorcycles by introducing the BMW R nine T - the first of it’s new ‘Heritage’ line. With a name that was a nod to both the R90S from the seventies and BMWs ninety years of motorcycle production, the R nine T carried the torch for the hugely successful oil/air-cooled boxer engine which was becoming less common as the marque moved over to their more powerful, liquid cooled versions in most of their adventure and touring bikes.

Pier City Cycles Pure Muscle R9T Build
“Squat, bulky and ready for a ruck, rugged…that kinda look!”. When a build meeting starts with those sentiments, you know it’s going to go in an interesting direction.
