BMW R68

My buddy Richard printed me off a copy of this yesterday.
It’s pinned on the garage cork-board right next to the B+W photo of Gary Nixon beating Kenny Roberts across the line at (?) Daytona. That one I bought from Nixon’s website just before he passed away. Apart from a nice note from Gary, he also put circles around himself and a very distant King Kenny, labeling both just to make sure there was no doubt as to who was beating who across the line 🙂
Anyway this photo is quite possibly my favorite ‘Bike’ photo though Scott Pommier and Scott Jones work is well worth checking out too.
