Detroit Motorcycle Show 2005 Review Pages

BMW had a truly classy display. There were way too many BMWs to photograph, yet I admire all their bikes. I don’t think I’ll ever own one, but they are very cool. I really like the dirt/street bikes. I enjoyed looking at the F650 GS Dakar. Also, the R1150 GS Adventure with the huge gas tank always intrigues me – imagine hundreds of miles without a gas stop – I’m lucky when my bike does 150 miles between gas ups.

Also at BMW, I found this little hooligan. It was so nice I just had to sit on it and take a bunch of shots of it – all naked looking and with that rusty color. Me likely.

Sweet side view of the R1150R in all its glory

Here’s looking at you, kid

The single swingarm is something BMW has executed very well – many times
