BMW Bike Show: Celebrating the Air-Cooled Classics

Posted in: Events

Union Garage & Moto Borgotaro are proud to present a BMW Airhead Retrospective, a bike show honoring the original air-cooled bikes to come out of Bayerische Motoren Werks.

We pulled together a collection of BMWs to celebrate these bikes in all their factory-correct originality. From the outlier models like the R65LS, to the iconic G/S early adventure bikes, and primordial sport bike, the R90S, we had an array of models in the exhibition tracing the progression the groundbreaking /5 series in 1970, through the end of the airhead era in 1995.

BMW never claimed these bikes to be the fastest or lightest or most powerful. Yet, we love the goofy old girls.

And since it’s October and we’re doing a German bike thing, it only makes sense to serve up sausage off the grill, with sauerkraut and pretzels on the side. And thanks to continued and generous event sponsorship from Sixpoint, we’ll all be washing down the meal while enjoying our favorite locally brewed beer.

The show was a hoot. If you missed it, you missed out. See below for a photo recap, courtesy of Peter Domorak. And see below that to jump to the 360-degree click-and-drag interactive show feature including almost all the bikes from the actual show.
