Anyone catch the history of the BMW motorcycle on TV

Discovery HD has had a great series the past few weeks called "Twist the throttle". They have shown the history of BMW, Kawasaki and Suzuki. Very informative and interesting show with very few commercial breaks. Talks about the history of each company and the bikes that really put them on the map or ahead of the curve.

Again the show is called "Twist the throttle".

The scenes of them riding the Bikes thru the Alps is awesome especially in HD.

Any BMW motorcycle enthusiast will definitely enjoy this program.

Thanks for the info. I hope I will be able to see it. I still keep a 1983 Twin R100RS and recently bought a 2008 K1200S.

The other episodes of Twist the Throttle on Suzuki, Ducati, etc. are equally good. Any motorcycle enthusiast would appreciate them and they are all worth while!

I'll have to look for it. The Ducati one is especially appealing.
