    In September 2019 Hans Muth came to visit Todd Trumbore in Harleysville, PA to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the legendary R80/GS and R65LS. It was a remarkable event, starting with Hans cutting the ribbon to officially open the "Bavarian Bike Barn" which houses varies rare, vintage and otherwise special motorcycles.

    Hans then gave a presentation of his R80/GS design concept, unveiling possibly the coolest R80/GS I have seen.

    There were multiple other presentations by various guest speakers. Just a wonderful event. The following day, Hans gave a presentation on the development leading up to the R65LS.

    There were autograph sessions, more presentations, an all around fantastic event! Was able to have a short photo shoot with Hans and some of his legendary machines.

    I was lucky enough to meet Todd shortly after moving to PA. He is a stand up guy and puts on great events. I did not attend to leave room for guys that own either a GS or an R65LS.

    I met Hans at the 40th R90S event down there. Great time, and amazing what they've done with the "barn" since 2014.
