The fine folks at Bob's BMW partnered with the BMW Motorcycle Owners Of America to host a 40th Anniversary Celebration for yet another model designed by Hans Muth, the R100RS. Bob has his personal R100RS on display, he and Paul gave us a historical recap on how this machine came to be, and some of it's (then) state of the art design features (wind tunnel designed fairing).
The first 40 riders signed in were treated to a fantastic crab cake lunch from the Flash CrabCake Company. I'm a huge fan of Jerry's Seafood Crab Cakes, I have to admit these are just about as good!
Sadly my R100RS exhibited an ignition switch failure on the way to Bob's, limped her home and went with the GSPD instead, while already at Bob's I elected to replace the horrible TKC80's with Metzeler Tourance tires. Nice ride improvement for sure - but not perfect - read about it in the Finger Lakes blog ....
Bob opened his museum for tours, there were door price drawings and Mark L's R100RS Motorsport took the people's choice award. What a great event, thank you for hosting this Bob!
