Nice pix. It does show the curve of the fender and exhaust quite nicely. Those old BMW's were nice bikes...as a vintage bike fan I do like seeing some of the older equipment.

Unlike lesmore49, I'm not a vintage motorcycle afficianado. Thus, I would prefer a somewhat wider shot so I would have a better idea of the features of the machine.

thanks Walter, appreciate the critique. I wasn't interested in showing the whole bike, just the similar lines of the exhaust pipe and the lower front fender.

thanks for looking,

Rick

Nice shot. I rode BMW's for many years. Is the bike in the photo an R5 or an R51?
