Everything you want to know about forty of the most iconic BMW motorcycles. BMW Motorcycles offers history and photography on forty of the most iconic motorcycles built by Germany's leading motorcycle manufacturer: BMW. From the preâ??World War II BMWs that defined performance in that era, to the Earles-forked machines that offered the perfect platform for mounting a Steib sidecar, to the "flying bricks," to the GS (Gelände Sport) series that launched a dual-sport revolution, right up to today's world-class superbikes. All of BMW's bike families are coveredâ??the side-valve machines from the preâ??World War II years, the early overhead-valve performance bikes, the postwar Airheads and Oilheads, the three-cylinder, four-cylinder, and six-cylinder touring bikes, the early pushrod singles, the modern overhead-cam singles, the latest parallel twins, and inline-four cylinder sport bikes. From the first model, the R32 that launched BMW's motorcycle dynasty, to the latest (and fastest) model, the World Super Bike dominating S1000RR, this book captures nearly a century of motorcycling excellence with thorough information and stunning, full-color photography.

Sven, Ole, Asil, Einer and their friends are about to embark on one of the most heart-rending adventures of their lives. They will be joined by their friends Kavan, Parkurkarkuss and McCorn in an effort to rescue Kavan’s family from the Russian zone of occupied Germany. Atrocities committed by the Nazi’s are well documented. Educational institutes and even museums teach the world about the plight and suffering of the Jews and other minorities that were displaced from their homes and businesses, tortured and killed during the Nazi regime. These well-meaning organizations are there to make sure we never forget the holocaust that took place in Hitler’s Nazi Germany. History and education have told of the suffering and death reeked upon the countries that the Germans overran and occupied. After the unconditional surrender of Germany and its occupation by the allied nations the German people would be treated much the same as they had treated the countries that they had defeated. For the German survivors would soon be displaced from their homes, have their possessions and business taken away from them. The basic needs of life would be allowed only at sustenance levels. After Germany surrendered, a new virtually ‘unknown holocaust’ took place. From 1945-1950 the allies expelled or forced more than 14 million Germans from their ancestral homes. 4 million German citizens were sent away as forced labor, most of these went to Russia never to return. More than 2 million Germans were killed or lost their lives. Over 2 million women from the ages of 9 to 90 were raped. Many of them did not survive or were mutilated for life. In the winter of 1945-1946, the allies forbid any nation to send food or aid to the starving Germans. The allied authorities even rejected requests by the international Red Cross to bring provisions to alleviate the suffering of the German people. The most common response to allied atrocities was to say, “The Germans got what the deserved.” Many of the things you will read in this story are true and based on facts. There are books and resources available on line or at your library for those of you who would like to do further research. I hope that the ‘truth’ be it good or bad will help humanity not to repeat the same mistakes in the future. What was left of the German population had become the Victims of the Victorious.
