Kat Kam's BMW S1000RR // 2 Wheels on Common Ground

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your BMW S1000rr?
I chose the
BMW S1000RR after riding my dad's when he bought one in 2016. I came from a 600, but the S1K was such a easy transition. The bike didn't feel super heavy like other liter bikes, just like a buff version of my Honda CBR600RR. The ease of ride, electronics, power, and comfort really sold me.

Oil in the Blood // Rory Milton's BMW R nineT

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose the BMW R nineT?
I used to run a
BMW Motorrad Service department and was a manager in the network when the BMW R nineT was released. It instantly became my go-to set of wheels because it combined the fun, well handling parts of my sports bikes with a quirky, cool-looking bike with character. The R9T is a brilliant bike to customize because it's so easy to work on and access everything, and it also offers great fun and reliability once it's on the road!

WYLD // Nathan Shew's Custom BMW R100 Motorcycles

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose the BMW R100 series to customize?
Vintage has always spoken to me more than modern vehicles. So much so that I started a company building out vintage vehicles and motorcycles called WYLD Garage Co.. W.Y.L.D. standing for What You Love Doing / What You Love Driving is a passion project I started after selling one of my companies.

Enjoy the Ride // Romain Rolus' BMW R nineT

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your BMW R NineT?
I’m a huge fan of custom bikes. They can be just like us, an extension of us, unique in our own way. The
BMW R NineT was a great choice : it is reliable, powerful and offers a lot of custom possibilities.

I bought a 2017 stock BMW R NineT Racer. Then I removed the front part, painted it all black and, in the end, I got a beautiful and unique bike.

Respect The Machine // Stephen Hagans' BMW R NineT

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your BMW R NineT?
I was intrigued with cafe racers and initially wanted to buy an old
BMW R100 to tinker with, but ultimately landed on a BMW R NineT. I really wanted something that didn’t need much work done on the engine and could be reliably ridden. Didn’t hurt that the R NineT is such a beautiful bike and has loads of potential for customization whether that’s a cafe, scrambler, brat or something in between.
