Random from the archive

While wandering from bike to bike on the 2004 edition of the Brussels motor show, I stumbled across this Michelin promotional BMW R1100S. I had still not had my first at the time, but had already tried one and really loved the experience. Even though this one comes with a fun Michelin paint job, you had to look beyond its (glass fiber) clothes to see it lacks most of the Boxercup special parts. Despite the sparky twin exhaust - which in fact is a Remus - and the lower fairing -which is not 'cup spec'ed - it misses the carbon rocker covers and it seems like the rear shock is still the stock Showa. Ok then it was simply a stock version with a sporty disguise, but the bike was fun to look anyway and deserved a picture.
