    And a nicely done photo too!
    A skittish motor-bike with a touch of blood in it is better than all the riding animals on earth, because of its logical extension of our faculties, and the hint, the provocation, to excess conferred by its honeyed untiring smoothness. T.E. Lawrence

    I am not familiar with the Battle of the Legends Don Vesco special. What is the story behind it?

    The Battle of the Legends was a "race" series BMW ran from 1992-1997. They started with the R100R and moved to the new R1100RS when they were released. Was kind of fun to watch some of the old timers (Don Emde, Yvon DuHamel, Roger Reiman, Mark Brelsford and a bunch more) at Daytona when they first started. BMW took the bikes and turned they over to dealers to sell as new when they were done with them. This one was ridden by top speed legend Don Vesco. I don't know if its a true "special edition" but more of signed one-of-one I guess.

    This might be a nice coffee table compliment to your bike

    Using that logic, so was every other bike ever raced. Nice try but S riders are very resilient and immune to your feeble efforts at ridicule.
