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 spent about 45 minutes chatting with Andy.

Then last week, Andy sent me a proof of the story. As of today it must have gone into BMW's press feed -- although I can't find it myself. (I will edit this and add a link when I find it.)
Edit: here it is: http://www.bmw-motorradnews.de/49/index.html
Edit II: BMW has put it up here, as well: http://www.bmw-motorrad.com/com/en/individual/news/2011/news.jsp?id=1888

But until then, you can read edited versions of it on the BMW MOA and BMW Motorcycle Magazine websites (they're each slightly different from the original).

Thanks also to Anastasia Keriotis, Ian Schmeisser and Lars Swartz for letting me use their photos.
