When the R100RS first came on the scene in 1977, it caused a complete sensation. Sporting a revolutionary wedge-shaped fairing that offered the rider near total enclosure, it provided unparalleled riding ease and protection. When fitted with optional saddlebags it sang the song of the open road that BMW riders cherished: long distances at high speeds with comfort and convenience. The first modern street motorcycle with a frame-mounted fairing, it was not only the most stunning BMW model, but with its new 980cc flat-twin motor, also the most powerful. Soon, a vast aftermarket sprang up around it with all sorts of updates for its suspension, handling, and power, as well as a large community of loyal fans and owners which exists to this day. Stermer's timeless book is the engaging story of where that legendary motorcycle came from including an interview with designer Hans Muth, what it was like to ride, and what it meant to motorcycling, told well and with luscious full-color photographs. Stermer's insightful insider's view of this storied machine shows why it continues to live on as one of the most recognizable and groundbreaking machines of our times.
