    Berliner Motorcycle Days...

    Hey, all!
    Yesterday I took the afternoon to head over to the Berliner Motorcycle Days show. BMW was , of course, there and featuring some new machines like the R1200ST:



    and the R1200RT:

    Mount up!


    I didn't get to spend a whole lot of time sizing up these machines because it was so crowded, but I sat on them and I have to say they are comfortable. Also, for those concerned about looks, I think they are swell looking up close. Especially the red/black ST!

    Here's an interesting quad that someone put together with a boxer engine!:

    People also submitted their older bikes for display.
    Here's a Berlin Polizei BMW w/ sidecar:


    A 1927 R57:


    and a DKW:


    Next time you're thinking about hitting the road for a few days, consider this as your ultimate touring machine:


    Royal Enfield's Sommer Diesel 26.



    So that about wraps it up, folks. And remember, any bike is useless without its very own keg afixed to the rear:




    Auf Wiedersehen!

    I am watching the ST, but probably won't jump for a couple years. OTOH, I wouldn't mind the R57! (Already have an R12...) Thanks for the pics!

    Nice pictures...

    Red ST? I think I'm getting aroused. Is the quad street legal over there? Where can I get more info/pictures?

    ...And remember, any bike is useless without its very own keg afixed to the rear...
    A guy at work has a gas grill mounted to his bike. This is giving me too many big ideas...

    The company that put together the quad is Fuhrmann, but their website is only in German. I can do a translation if you really want me to.

    Translation

    Thanks Chase. Hey, if you want to translate the page that's good because I can't read it. I know it wouln't pass DOT regs here but it's pretty cool nevertheless.
