Hello boys and girls, just collected my first 2 wheeled BMW, it has been standing in a garage for 3 years as the previous owner damaged his arm.
The plan is to clean many things, service it and ride it.

Mystic red is a great color! Good job scoring one with a radio.

Plan on replacing the brake lines, and take a good look at fuel lines, easier to replace things once you get it apart. Change the fluids if it sat three years, don't overfill the tranny. I'd drain and replace the coolant as well.

Welcome to the jungle!

Welcome!

Yeah - what he said... Look closely at all the rubber bits - they tend to fail after 18 plus years. Definitely change all the fluids.
