BMW 80th Anniversary DVD

BMW 80th Anniversary DVD

98 minutes
Dolby stereo sound
Region 1-9 compatible

BMW celebrated its 80th anniversary of motorcycle manufacturing with a huge blowout party in Germany in 2003.

Over 30,000 people attended from all over the world to celebrate one of the most famous marques in motorcycle history.

BMW’s party may have been overshadowed in the U.S.A. by the Harley Davidson celebration, but it was huge by any standard.  So if you didn’t get a chance to attend, or even if you did, check out this unique DVD.

The high-quality video puts you right in the heart of the action, with beautiful rides through the Alps, interviews with the people and the sites and sounds of the big multi-day party!

The videography is excellent and nicely edited — it makes you feel like you were really there!

Extra DVD features include special rare and extended interviews with: 

  • BMW motorcycle Design Director David Robb

  • A very interesting history of BMW motorcycles, featuring many facts about the origins of BMW motorcycles.  This session also includes an interesting discussion of the original BMW R32 that started it all with BMW Historian Fred Jakobs as he sits next to the groundbreaking motorcycle and details its unique features

  • An interview and video of BMW stunt rider Jean Pierre Goy, who entertained and awed the crowds during the event.
