Cool bikes, looking forward to the pics.

The R90S was by far the sportiest of the BMW /7 bikes.  Don't forget, the bike that won the initial AMA Superbike Championship was a BMW R90S.  Reg Pridmore's championship winning bike is in the BMW Museum in Munich.  You can walk right up and touch it.

You say you want pics?








Here are some photos of Steve McLaughlin's race bike:

I don't doubt the cash total was impressive but then so is the bike!  That's a looker.  I've always been a bit more partial to the RS models but I remember how the R90S made the whole motorcycling world sit up and take notice.  Orange paint...Superbike performance...and it's a BMW!  For younger folks it was exactly the impression the S1000RR made and just as much a game changer.  So, while I like the RS I'd have to say the original S was more of a sport bike and, in many ways, a more collectible and significant bike for Beemer fans.

Thanks for sharing that Skeeter...that one's a keeper for sure!

Skeeter,

Here's a photo of my 1976 R100RS sitting in front of my home in Glan-Munchweiler in late summer 1978.  I rode this bike all over Northern Europe and to England from August 1977 to the spring of 1980 when it was stolen in Amsterdam.





You can see my VWs parked behind it.  It was German boxer engine heaven in those days!

Nice!  I bet that was fun...and impressive.  The later flat twins like my 1988 R100RS that I'm riding now were detuned to take unleaded gas and horsepower is only in the low 60s compared to the high 70s that my original 1976 R-RS made.
