I just found this video that BMW put out for their 90th birthday.

That's really cool...gave me

That's really cool...gave me chills at one point. Too bad it's so washed out...I guess that was the "artist" in them.

Update: Hmmm...I watched it again and it's much clearer. Don't know why but the first time, the colors, etc., were just real washed out. Oh wel...

I'd think

I'd think the Earls fork era (about 15 of 90 years of production) would have gotten more than 3 seconds of time and in that, not one "glamor" shot of a road bike or side hack rig! I guess it was not a good time for the company and perhaps they don't see it as their golden age. I do. Nice to see the R80 (R100?) included and a bit of the oil head years... which are approaching classic age now at about 23 years for their introduction. How did that happen? Unlike some I like them all..... well no chain/belt drive for me!

If you must make a mistake, make a new one each time.
