    Most dealers wax the showroom floor from time to time. MAX BMW just lays down a new coat of rubber.


    Notwithstanding the ending disclaimer, I find it very hard not to consider this type of behavior as bike abuse.

    1976 BMW R90S Insanity - Love It!

    I thought I would post this link to the test ride of the 1976 (trust that the year is right) of the Max Stratten BMW R90S that was built from NOS parts. I am blown away that this beautiful machine was able to do what it's doing. I'll let you be the judge.

    Even though it wasn't the bike built in three days new from parts, check the pipes and fairing, whatever, the stunt riding plus burn outs probably put a few thousand miles of wear and tear on that bike. But, it's his bike, burn those dollars. Great riding never before seen on an old airhead, probably soaped up a bit.

    It must be a great place to work as custodial staff.
    If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance

    Teach

    I'm fairly sure that's Chris "Teach" McNeil. Teach has made appearances at several of our national rallies as provided for us by Motorrad.

    Great promo by Max's.

    Indeed it is. He has appeared in a previous "test ride" video as well - that time Max's van driver Fred caged him in the sprinter van :-)
