One of the things I wanted to see in Daytona last week was this bike. On display at BMW of Daytona is what is claimed to be R100RS #2. This bike was the centerpiece at the 1976 Cologne Moto Expo. At the time, it was a dramatic step for BMW and the first fully faired production motorcycle. If this bike is indeed the Koln show bike, then this is the second time I've seen it. At the BMW display in 1976, you couldn't get near it, the bike was mobbed. 28 years later, I stood there, a foot away taking pictures and poking around the nooks and crannies. The bike has been restored and the paint is that unique satin silver blue. The blue anodized front calipers and Weimann rims painted to match with blue pinstripes were special to the RS. The bike looked very sharp. Thee were some parts that were the later supercessions, but only a /7 dork such as myself would notice. The price tag? $25.000.00. They also claim to have RS #1 as well. A bit of BMW history, in a sea of Harley Davidsons.
