Description - The Art of BMW by Peter Gantriis

BMW began its life in aero-engineering--as anyone whos ever ridden one of its motorcycles might guess. These are bikes as close to airborne as any get. And whats more, fifty percent of all the motorcycles BMW has manufactured are still flying down the worlds roads. These are the best, and in this book, the best of the best get their due, with brilliant, full-color photographs of BMWs classic models and detailed descriptions of their features, all located within the context of a concise history of this legendary marque. From the first of BMWs bikes, the R32, through the models that catapulted the company out of the ruins of World War II, to the latest bikes with the revamped opposed-twin-cylinder boxer engines that brought BMW its first fame--these are the bikes that made history, and, better yet, gave the most demanding riders a taste for flight.
