3.0 out of 5 starsHard cover but small, short, and sweetApril 14 2001
By D. Stamper - Published on Amazon.com
This little book covers 15 notorcycles including two racing models. Nice quality paper, great pictures but very little info and many,(most), models are not included. Might make a good gift for someone that is only mildly interested in BMW bikes. If your looking for a reference book, look elsewhere.

A little pocket size encyclopedia on BMW motorcycles with pictures and descriptions of the significant models. It is written in the same format as Wilson's The Encyclopedia of the Motorcycle.

Just a thin pocket size handbook of a few BMW models over the years. Thankfully it was a give away price so couldn't complain.
2.0 out of 5 starsBuyer BewareDec 30 2012
By Michael S Brodock - Published on Amazon.com
This is a small book at 42 pages and the pages dimensions of 5x3 inches. The information is of good content, but a short 20 minute read. Over priced for the size and depth of information . Buyer beware.
