The BMW Motorrad demo display will showcase 2016 BMW motorcycle models and apparel. BMW Motorrad Motorsports advisor and factory test rider Nate Kern will also be on hand to share his expertise on the BMW S 1000 RR superbike. For those wondering what it’s like to ride the RR on a racetrack, BMW will offer visitors a chance to try a simulation with the EyeRide on-bike virtual reality system. For up-close RR racing action, visitors can head to the track Paddock, where Nate, a former CCS national champion, will spend some time advising hopefuls like California native Steve Rapp, who will compete in the season opener of the MotoAmerica series on an S 1000 RR.
The BMW Motorrad display will also feature a 1975 BMW R75/6, which will be part of an upcoming raffle fundraiser to support the AMA Hall of Fame. The 1975 BMW R75/6 has been customized by renowned bike builder Tony Prust from Analog Motorcycles in Chicago, Ill. Modifications include a custom sub frame, Fox Street RC1 shocks, Race Tech Gold Valves, billet triple clamps and rider pegs, an engine refresh, aftermarket performance ignitions, updated electronics and wiring throughout, custom paint, new controls, new brake lines and more. Raffles tickets are $5 each or $20 for five tickets. Participants must be 18 years or older and a resident of the United States to win. The drawing will be held at Mama Tried Motorcycle Show in February 2017. For official raffle rules, visit: www.motorcyclemuseum.org/RaffleBikeRulesBMW.aspx.
