Our friends at BMW have decided NOT to appear at the majority of Cycle World International Motorcycle Shows this year. Evidently they will only put in an appearance at the Los Angeles and New York shows. I guess if you live anywhere else in the country, your appreciation of their product doesn't count for much.
This is the only decent annual motorcycle exibition in my area (Pacific Northwest). I look forward to attending every year.
I have owned three Boxer twins (airhead ,oilhead and hexhead). I strongly believe they are the finest motorcycle produced . I am a member of BMWMOA. I go to annual regional BMW rallies. I fervently defend my choice of motorcycle to the knuckleheaded Harley riding crowd at the factory where I work. But I'm getting a little tired of holding up the BMW banner alone. I guess I should just keep in mind that this is a company which steadfastly refuses to issue me two keys to a motorcycle I paid over $15,000.00 for new in 2006. This is getting tiresome-
