    Notice the nice RS54 article in OTL Jan/Feb issue?  Very nice and big images of the bevel drive BMW set up.  Including lots of historic racing photos back in the day.  Loved the image of the cylinder head bare-naked, with all the cams and followers flayed open for our edification.  Cool also to see that Ozzie’s BMW out of Chico, CA still races one!  Not desmodromic, because ther are valve springs to close the valves, but pretty darned innovative.


    If names like Schorsch Meier and Walter Zeller and model designations like the RS54 and RS256 get your adrenaline flowing, you should have a look at Scott Williams’ Weiss und Blau blog.  Scott has been writing about vintage BMWs and especially about vintage BMW racers for several years now and has been published in the Vintage BMW Motorcycle Owners club’s Classic BMW Motorräder magazine several times.  I was just reminded of his blog this morning and then I realized an hour had gone by.  Definitely check it out!
