Renovation in Progress
For almost two years Bob has been working closely with BMW Motorrad to design a new and exciting showroom for our customers to enjoy! The new floor plan captures the sleek contemporary elements of the BMW Motorrad brand with Bob’s personal love of BMW heritage and passion for motorcycling.
Bob’s BMW is excited to announce the remodel is officially underway! Since mid-November Bob has been hard at work every day, night and most weekends with help of the team. We’ve been repairing walls, painting, taking down old fixtures and replacing them with new ones, laying new flooring and more. Implementing these changes has made the entire showroom look different each day. View Gallery of Images
Every customer in our database will be invited to the Open House Grand Remodel Celebration scheduled for March. Until then, over these next few months we encourage you to stop by and see the construction in the works. Grab a cup of coffee, find Bob or any team member and let us fill you in on the exciting new plans while you shop incredible end of year sales.
Be Part of Bob’s History
Most importantly, when you come to visit please be sure to sign a piece of Bob’s BMW history! We’ll have a panel from the old showroom on the floor for customers to sign and later be showcased in the dealership. Customers are invited to share their favorite memory of Bob’s or simply autograph the panel so that you are personally part of this monumental milestone!
Bob’s BMW thanks all of its customers and the motorcycling community at large for supporting the dealership since 1981.
R nineT /5: Exclusive model to mark the 50th anniversary of the /5 series and 50 years of BMW Motorrad production in Berlin Spandau.
Classic, authentic, original – and air-cooled. This is what the BMW R nineT models stand for. The new R nineT /5 provides another addition to the successful BMW Motorrad Heritage world of experience, this time with special historical roots: the model marks the 50th anniversary of the legendary /5 series and at the same time the start of BMW Motorrad production at the BMW plant in Berlin Spandau 50 years ago.
A look back to the past with the future in mind: the /5 series as a historical archetype.
BMW automobile production increased enormously in the 1960s, so the decision was taken to build BMW motorcycles in Berlin. Operations got underway in 1969 with some 400 staff and a new series: the /5 models R 50/5, R 60/5 and R 75/5. With a completely newly developed chassis and engine along with a fresh, modern design, BMW made a lasting impact on the expanding motorcycle market of the time. The /5 models saw instant success, thrilling customers with a combination of riding dynamics on country roads and travel comfort.
The new BMW motorcycles perfectly matched an age defined by upheaval, rock music and a powerful sense of freedom. As a reflection of this, a wide range of bold, bright body colours was available for the new /5 models.
The BMW Motorrad anniversary model R nineT /5 not only marks the 50th anniversary of the /5 series and 50 years of BMW Motorrad production in Berlin Spandau, however. Fitted as standard with heated grips, the R nineT /5 also rekindles memories of that bygone era, bringing the /5 models back to life with nostalgic charm but in a contemporary form.
Painstaking details in the style of the /5 models for a harmonious overall package.
The anniversary model features contemporary knee pads, for example, as well as an elaborate body finish in Lupine Blue metallic with smoke effect and double line marking on the fuel tank, which bears the anniversary emblem. Chrome for the rear mirrors, exhaust manifold and rear silencer likewise hark back to the historical archetype, as does the double seat contoured in the style of the /5 with cross-embossing on the cover, grab straps and white piping as well as gaiters on the telescopic fork.
The coating of the engine, gearbox, fork slider tubes, wheel hubs and spokes in Aluminium Silver also stylishly evokes the legendary /5 models, as do the components finished in black such as the frame and the propeller shaft casing.
Highlights of the BMW R nineT /5:
-Potent boxer engine with a capacity of 1 170 cc and an output of 81 kW (110 hp) that meets EU4 requirements.
-Spoke wheels, 3.5 x 17 inches at front and 5.5 x 17 inches at rear.
-320-millimetre twin disc brake at the front.
-ABS as standard.
-ASC (Automatic Stability Control) as standard.
-Heated grips as standard.
-2-in-1 exhaust system made of stainless steel with chrome manifolds and rear silencer.
-Fuel tank with knee pads and elaborate paint finish in Lupine Blue metallic with smoke effect and double line marking.
-Front mudguard in Lupine Blue metallic with double line marking.
-Double seat with chrome decorative elements and white piping, evoking the historic predecessor.
-Fork slider tubes, wheel hubs and spokes in Aluminium Silver.
-Telescopic fork with gaiters.
-High-end details such as fork bridges and footrests in forged, clear anodised aluminium.

Tuesday, January 22, 2019
Posted by: Ted Moyer, 100360
The BMW MOA Foundation is back with another unique find for the the 2019 Completely Vintage Raffle. The popular fundraiser for the Foundation features a very special 1967 R60/2 acquired from the BMW Museum at Bob’s BMW. Tickets for the Completely Vintage Raffle will be AVAILABLE ONLINE through March 31, 2019.
This expertly restored motorcycle featuring, nearly 100% period correct NOS parts, is truly an exceptional example of vintage BMW motorcycles. Bob Henig of Bob’s BMW acquired this flawlessly restored example of BMW’s sturdy, dependable motorcycle over 15 years ago. It came to him from a friend intimately involved in restoring classic BMW motorcycles and is one of the finest and most accurately restored R 60/2 motorcycles you will ever see. The restoration, which took place from 1995-97, utilized as many new old stock (NOS) BMW parts as possible. Even the paint and pinstriping are correct for the period.
At the time of restoration, the bike was all original, had only two previous owners, and had just over 20,000 original miles on it. This specific machine underwent a full stripped-frame restoration. All driveline components were rebuilt including new bearings, seals and gaskets. The crank was done over, and the engine blueprinted. New original BMW pistons were used along with NOS valves, guides and seats to fully rebuild the heads. All cases and covers were painstakingly blasted with walnut shells to return them to the exact same luster as when the bike left Berlin. Special hardware was reused as long as all edges and faces were perfect; these were all sent out to be cadmium plated to the exact appearance of what BMW provided in the 1960s.
The details really make this restoration shine, things like axles, Europa handlebars, bar risers and pinch bolts, bar end turn signals and harness, the main and rear wiring harnesses, ignition switch plate, switch assembly, chrome hardware, ignition coil, plug caps and boots, lenses for the headlamp and tail lamp plus the internals and chrome trim rings, left and right control switches, wheel bearing retainers, chromed steel rims plus spokes and nipples and the painted hub caps, internal clutch assembly components, the header pipes with exhaust nuts and cross over, the factory side stand and a standard bench seat. The standard width bench seat and the optional 6.5-gallon sport tank are the perfect visual combination. Even the control cables and adjustors are original BMW and from the correct era. Inside the engine under the oil pump gear inspection cover is a BMW tach drive gear in case the new owner hunts down and adds that rare option in the future.
There are a few more NOS parts included and installed, but they are not original BMW items; they are period correct accessories or options offered through Butler & Smith and Flanders Corporation, the two authorized U.S. importers from that time period. This includes items like the Bowman cast aluminum deep oil pan, stainless steel mufflers, KONI heavy duty front and rear shocks, finned exhaust nut covers and the Albert left-hand mirror. Wheel rims and spokes, NOS to start with, are also perfect, as is the exhaust system, all chromed and plated parts, fasteners, hardware, rubber, cables, adjustors and springs.
All the paint and expertly applied hand pinstripes of the correct size and location were done utilizing the factory-correct Glasurit Avus black materials. The machine has always been stored in a temperature-controlled environment and is always parked on wood or carpeted floors. It has never been in the rain since the restoration, and it has seen regular dustings, shines and the occasional bath and re-wax.
The rubber parts are perfect. A NOS original battery strap from Bob’s personal stash will also be included. Not one drop of oil has collected under this machine over the years, and while it has been over a decade since it was last ridden, it was expertly pickled for long-term storage. The fuel tank is clean and dry, and there are fresh oils in all driveline components.
This machine is supplied with additional items such as an original owner’s manual, a complete original tool kit in the pouch, a rare original BMW shop rag, the correct tire repair kit in the small tin and one black knob key, one flat spare key plus one special square key to fit the tool compartment on top of the sports tank. There is simply not another BMW R60/2 available anywhere on this planet that one could acquire that is as perfect as this machine.

2008 BMW R1200GS
This 2008 BMW R1200GS was a gift to General Boyd. The bike was designed to replicate that of a fighter plane, spotlight the General’s air force career, thank him and honor him for the sacrifices he made for his country, and celebrate his extraordinary will to survive. Not only did the General survive 7 years as a Vietnam POW, he fought and survived a diagnosis of Stage 4 cancer. When he was diagnosed, he told the doctors, “I don’t kill easy.” And, indeed he did not. After beating the cancer, to celebrate his victory, in the fighter pilot tradition of doing a “Victory Roll” after shooting down an enemy, Boyd invited his motorcycle buddies to join him on a Victory Roll Ride. At the start he was presented with this machine you see on display today.

Lone Rider – The First British Woman to Motorcycle Around the World
Meet Author Elspeth Beard on the final leg of her U.S. Book Tour
Austin, Texas – October 25th, 2018 – In 1982, 23-year-old Elspeth Beard left her family and friends in London and set off on a 35,000-mile solo motorcycle journey around the world. Her adventure—spanning the course of two years and crossing over four continents—took her through deserts, mountain ranges, and war ravaged countries. Along the way, she faked documents to cross borders, fended off sexual attacks, evaded biker gangs and corrupt law enforcement convinced she was trafficking drugs, survived brutal crashes and life-threatening illnesses, and had fallen in and out of love. By the time she and her 1974 BMW R60/6 motorcycle returned to England two years later, she was 30 pounds lighter and decades wiser. This is the coming-of-age story of a young woman on a journey—and the bike that carried her through it all.
Upon her journey’s conclusion and return home to London in 1984, Elspeth Beard stored all evidence of her journey—journals, tapes, and photos—into a cardboard box in the back of a cupboard where they remained for more than 30 years. Now over four decades after her journey, Beard’s story has been brought to light and finds new meaning within today’s contemporary context. Charting the globe at a time when solo-female journeys were neither common nor celebrated, Elspeth Beard reflects on the challenges she faced as a woman on the road, with vivid presence, honesty, and wit. Lone Rider is not only the culmination of Beard’s journey on her bike, but her journey beyond her bike through life.
Previously published in the UK, Lone Rider made its debut to the US in June. This captivating book charts Beard’s progress around the globe in richly descriptive chapters that reflect on her experiences, from “Pretty Boys and Biker Gangs: New Mexico to California,” to “Bell Helmet For a Burka: Iran to Istanbul.” The book is accompanied by stunning full-color original photographs taken by Beard throughout her journey, capturing scenes such as riding alongside camels on the roads of Rajasthan, India, mending a punctured tire in the middle of the Pakistani desert abyss, and the expectant day before she set off on her two-year adventure. In 320 pages, Lone Rider tells the complete story of a woman’s round-the-world journey on her bike, from charts of fuel purchased and maintenance serviced, to accounts of love, loss, struggle, and freedom.

Schuberth C4 VS. Shoei Neotec 2
Two Top-Of-Line Modular Helmets! Which is right for you?
Below is a comparison between the Shoei Neotec 2 and the Schuberth C4. Both modular helmets are excellent options providing premium safety and comfort, but without knowing the features of each, it is not easy to decide which is right for you. So lets begin…
SHELL & WEIGHT
Both the Neotec 2 and C4 are made from fiberglass; the C4 is 100% fiberglass and the Neotec 2 is a fiber glass mixture called Advanced Interfrated Matrix (AIM). The Shoei weighs slightly less than the Schuberth. However the Schuberth comes with the speaker and mic built in whereas the Neotec does not so once you add the SENA communication system to the Shoei, weight is just about the same.
Schuberth helmets are known for their quiet aerodynamic design and the C4 conitnues this tradition. Both helmets are designed to prevent air flow through the lower area of the helmet. The Shoei is euipped with a Vortex Generator in the chin zone that not only prevents the entry of air but also reduces noise considerably. Plus, it has a double rear spoiler, wind tunnel tested, that minimizes turbulence at high speeds making it great for not only touring but also sport bike riders.
Both come with Pinlock anti-fog lense and anti-scratch treatment. Neither require special tools to remove the screen; both are easily removable. The Neotec 2 visor is not as high or wide as the C4 visor but the Neotec does have a carved edge that the C4 does not, allowing it to fit as tightly as possible agianst the helmet shell helping with soundproofing. One interesting side note is that the C4 does offer the possiblity of changing the sun visor depending on the type of light.
CHIN BAR OPENING SYSTEM & CLOSURE
The Shoei offers a 2-click system so that once the chin bar is lifted, it can be pushed back one more time for a second click providing a bit of a locking mechanism. Both incorporate a micrometric retention system making them very quick and easy to operate.
While both helmets have a sophisticated ventilation system, the Neotec 2 offers an extractor in the rear that the C4 does not. Both have air inlets in the upper zone and chin zone.
Interior padding in both helmets is removable and washable. The Schuberth interior is anitbacterial and fast drying and has been optmized for those that wear glasses. The Shoei was built with padding in the area of the ears which reduces external noise.
Both have 5 year warranties, however the Schuebrth you must register. Otherwise it is only a 2 year warranty.
