|August 2019 Bike of the Month
Ken Morris and his 1968 BMW R60/2
Country of Origin: Germany
Engine: 600cc Twin
Transmission: 4 speed
Owner: Ken Morris
Congratulations to Ken Morris of Upland for winning Bike of the Month with his 1968 BMW R60/2.
Ken won a plaque provided by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys.
Ken has owned this BMW for 5 years and completed a nine month restoration in April just in time to
take it to the Quail Motorcycle Gathering in Monteray and taking Second place in the European class.
It's no wonder he took nearly every vote today.
Ken didn't ride it down from Upland today, but he rides it regularly.
This bike has several unique and rare accessories, including an auxiliary headlight with a rear mounted mirror, a tachometer,
an eight day clock and rear luggage rack.
This was Ken's third Bike of the Month win.
He won back in September 2016 with his 1969 BMW R60/2 and in
with his 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120R.
Thank you Ken for bringing your BMW out for all of us to see. See all the photos in our August Gallery.
