HAHA! Typical BMW riders!!!!
Except for that dude wearing a helmet. What was he thinking, the dork!

It took me a second to realize that the Harley is an airhead too. Say, this pic is really something. Do you have any info on it? I never knew there were once street cruiser gangs composed strictly of BMWs. I would love to run this in the BMW club magazine that I work for.

EDIT: Google is my friend! Some quick photojournalistic research (paste>Google) dug up the info on this photo!

This shot is from a 1971 German B movie, "Rocker"

short clip:

Not running yet, but I thought the fact that she actually looks like an almost-complete bike for the first time in years warranted a post!

Very nice! I'm guessing its one of those '73 (pinstripes w/ toaster panels)? I think the stripes look great with the chrome.
