A Little Boxer Music...

Here's a bit of video of the 1928 BMW R52 we're entering in the cannonball.

The Sprinter is Finally Ready!

I finally finished all of the mods I've been trying to get to in my van, and I think it's ready to go.

Boxer Rebellion Gets Some Media!

A month ago, while I was at the annual BMW Motorrad Days in the ski resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the Bavarian Alps, Fred Jakobs introduced me to Andy Dukes. Andy is a freelance writer who often creates pieces for BMW's press club highlighting interesting stories around BMW. Fred (BMW's head archivist) wanted to make sure that our little endeavor got wider notice within BMW's ranks.

I can't believe I haven't done this before. Thanks to Marc St. Pierre, who reminded me.

    Working on the Sprinter

    Below is a photo of where I am with the Sprinter today. I laid the vinyl flooring and put down the coving and bullnose that covers the edges. That was a lot of work, there must be an easier way than how I did it.

    Ok, that headline is a little misleading. I got a spacer from Vech (who is one of our spnsors!

    Cannonball Itinerary Info

    Lonnie Isam, the organizer, has been putting up information about the route on the Cannonball website. He has the first five days' route laid out so far, and it's worth reading if you want to understand where we're going and the challenges we're going to meet.

    Back Home!

    Last night I slept in my own bed, after being up for about 27 hours straight. I could rant on about how awful air travel has become, but I'll spare you that. I would advise you to avoid JFK if possible, however. And I note that BMW's longtime seat engineer must have a new job working for Delta. Hopefully this is good news for future BMW models.

    I am still in Germany. I've made a couple visits already, as you know from my last post.

    A busy day today

    I am in Germany collecting parts and getting work done for the R52. In particular, I rode through Bavaria today and stopped in at a shop in the tiny hamlet of Orthofen, where Uli Döderlein performs his black magic on magnetos. I have a spare Bosch D2A magneto/dynamo (generator) of the type needed for the R52, which was dead about 4 years ago, when I last visited Uli.
