For 85 years BMW has been building some of the world’s best motorcycles--an accomplishment that this lavish book duly celebrates, with exquisite photographs and detailed descriptions of classic bikes, along with a concise history of the legendary company. From the first model, the R32, through the bikes that catapulted BMW out of the ruins of World War II, to the latest motorcycles with the revamped opposed-twin-cylinder “boxer” engines that brought the company its first fame--these are the bikes that made BMW great.
