2008 marks the 25th anniversary of the introduction of the BMW K-Bike series. BMW Motorrad USA is recognizing this milestone with a special ÔÇ£K KoncoursÔÇØ at the BMW MOA International Rally in Gillette, WY. Shahram Shiva is coordinating the activities and has setup a website with more information at www.25yearsofthekbike.com. There is a link there to the 25th Anniversary article which will appear in the July issue of the Owners News.
This is going to be once-in-a-lifetime event for the K-Bike faithful. Those participating in the K Koncours will receive a goodie bag of special commemorative items.
