The Art of BMW: 85 Years of Motorcycling Excellence
by Peter Gantriis
BMW began its life in aero-engineering--as anyone whos ever ridden one of its motorcycles might guess.  These are bikes as close to airborne as any get.  And whats more, fifty percent of all the motorcycles BMW has manufactured are still flying down the worlds roads.  These are the best, and in this book, the best of the best get their due, with brilliant, full-color photographs of BMWs classic models and detailed descriptions of their features, all located within the context of a concise history of this legendary marque.  From the first of BMWs bikes, the R32, through the models that catapulted the company out of the ruins of World War II, to the latest bikes with the revamped opposed-twin-cylinder boxer engines that brought BMW its first fame--these are the bikes that made history, and, better yet, gave the most demanding riders a taste for flight.

BMW Motorcycles: The Evolution of Excellence
by Kevin Ash
This is the fascinating story of one of the world's most admired and enduring motorcycle companies. Early in the last century, driven by an obsession for quality and reliability, BMW applied the knowledge gained from its manufacture of airplane engines to build a breed of motorcycles that aimed a notch above the crowd. From its early racing victories, the company learned how to make tough, reliable machines that would win races -- and allow enthusiasts to ride anywhere in the world with confidence. In spite of the competitive marketplace in which it operates, the company has survived and flourished, owing in no small part to the deeply ingrained principles that have guided it from the beginning: a passion for quality and reliability, and a willingness to apply new motorcycle technologies to achieve those objectives. It is a company whose pace of innovation and new product introductions is stunning.
