    Great story - would have liked to have had more shots of his collection - the list is amazing, starting with 1924 models!

    I was hoping for more pictures also. I did a quick search and founa a couple sites with pictures of this collection of BMWs.

    Wow

    Thank you for that link. Very interesting. Too bad the guy who wrote the article couldn't figure out that the 1953 ISDT R68 which likely did win the ISDTthat year on the IOM; but didn't win the IOM TT

    Ya I know - critics

    Wow! It's too bad that the collection can't be maintained in one piece. It's a shame to break it apart. The maintenance on that many bikes would be a full-time job ÔÇö even if they're rarely, if ever, ridden.
