This 1988 BMW R100RT was the first bike to cross the entire world. I just happened to be reading the book that documents the journey tonight when I realized its 1988 week here at Suicide Wheels. I purchased the book when at the Barber Motorcycle Museum after seeing the exhibit. I higly suggest it as it is a great read! I have spent the last number of flights and many hotel evenings reading it and am not quite done yet. Its not your typical travel story as Jim is a investment genius as well as historian and will teach you a ton about the world's economies, societies, religions, and goverments. I highly suggest getting on Amazon.com right now and ordering it.
