BMW R32, THE GREAT GRAND PAPPY OF THE LINE . . . . THE BIKE THAT PUT THE 'SPINNING PROPELLOR' ON THE MAP . . . . NOT UNLIKE 'THE MOTOR COMPANY', ESTABLISHING AN AESTHETIC AND TECHNICAL LINEAGE THAT STILL SURVIVES TODAY . . . . SEHR AUSGEZEICHNET !!!!
This was on the History Channel years ago, an excellent doco on a genuine landmark two wheeler that set precedents a plenty, also the definitive Art Deco style ride visually . . . . if anything, the R32 was a tad over engineered, not unlike some of the brilliant German military machinery of the Second World War, a propensity to over complicate things . . . . but screw those early growing pains, one fanastic piece of industrial design and destined from day one to become the classic it now is, like I said in the post title, sehr Ausgezeichnet . . . . that'd be Deutsch for fucking excellent !!!!
