The Vintage BMW Motorcycle Owners, Inc. (VBMWMO) is pleased to announce today the release of the first issue of a new, vibrant quarterly magazine entitled the Classic BMW Motorräder. It promises to infuse its members’ passions with all things BMW, Pre-War, Post-War and Classics, while encompassing all BMW motorcycles twenty-five years and older. The Classic BMW Motorräder will contain new and exciting informative articles from several new authors from all over the world.

Jeffery Yost, President and Founder of the recently reorganized VBMWMO states, “I shared our vision, ‘If we build it they will come’, in my President’s column of the last issue of The Vintage BMW Bulletin. This statement indicates our core business philosophy of achieving sustainable growth. The Classic BMW Motorräder replaces The Vintage BMW Bulletin, which faithfully served our readers since 1972. It is time for a fresh new change in order to continue to meet our existing subscribers’ and younger potential members’ needs. During the course of this year, you will see additional exciting improvements bringing further value to you, our members.”

Darryl Richman, Vice President and the club’s Webmaster, said “Our new, full-color and expanded size magazine gives us the opportunity to provide more information to our members, and for those that visit our websites, we can add on to that information and make it more timely. One way we will do this is with an electronic version of the magazine – available online to members the day that the paper magazine mails!”

The first issue of Classic BMW Motorräder is a full color, 40-page magazine with a modern layout and a readable style, designed by the VBMWMO’s new Creative Art Director, Becca Arsenault. “I am thrilled to have been involved in the revamping of the VBMWMO's new Classic BMW Motorräder! I hope to do the mag justice by highlighting the classic content you all know and love, with motivated and strong design that will make for an easier and more enjoyable-to-read layout.”
