2014 Picks from Bob’s BMW

SHOIE GT AIR HELMETS

SHOEI’s all-new stylish GT-Air makes it easier to adapt to the ever-changing conditions that Mother Nature places in our path. Features such as the convenient flip-down internal sun shield, free-flowing yet easily adjustable ventilation system, superior aerodynamics, and Pinlock Anti-Fog System ensure greater comfort and thus more time in the saddle than ever before.

REV’IT AIRWAVE PANTS

Rev’it! brings you Summer riding air mesh at its best: rugged and strong, yet soft and comfortable to the touch. Stay cool and safe at the same time. Fully equipped with CE-approved armor plus an attention to detail not usually found at such an affordable price. With a long side entry zipper, these pants can be put on and taken off in the blink of an eye – making the Airwave trousers the perfect summer commuter pants.

SCALA RIDER QZ SYSTEM

Whether you ride your motorcycle for business or pleasure, you need to stay connected at all times. The Qz allows you to safely and easily make and receive phone calls while riding, connect to your GPS and receive in-the-ear instructions, and tune into your favorite playlist.

Upgrade to the Q9 system and get helmet to helmet communication with up to 9 people!


BMW STREETGUARD WOMEN’S JACKET & PANTS

The new BMW StreetGuard jacket and pants (sold separately) offer flexibly equipped for all kinds of weather, from the heat of summer to the depths of winter, and numerous clever extras and comfort features that demonstrate detailed design and innovation. StreetGuard represents BMW’s premium touring apparel and is the first choice for riders who appreciate functionality as well as quality.

KLIM VENTED SOCK

The Klim Vented Sock is our most ventilated technical sock designed to wick moisture away from the skin allowing the foot to stay dry and comfortable. Strategically-placed soft mesh panels allow for maximum moisture removal. The Klim Vented Sock is best suited for aggressive riders and/or warmer conditions and works great for any rider looking for minimal bulk and maximum dryness.

BMW COOL DOWN VEST

You say it’s too hot to ride? Not anymore, with this new vest from BMW that uses evaporation to keep you cool The vest uses the HyperKewl system to lock in moisture. That moisture is stored in the material for up to 8 hours, providing a constant cooling effect through evaporation, reducing heat by around 11 to 22º F compared to the ambient temperature. Repeat the process as many times as necessary. And as you ride cool, your clothing stays perfectly dry! The ultra-lightweight garment fits comfortably beneath most summer-weight textile jackets.

REV’IT! CHRONOS GTX JACKET

The REV’IT! Chronos GTX takes highly functional gear to the next level. This two-in-one jacket is ideal for commuters, distance tourers, and day riders alike in all weather conditions during the warm and hot seasons.
Features include large air-mesh panels for optimal ventilation, excellent reflection, plenty of adjustability to fine-tune the fit, CE-approved ProLife® armor at the shoulders and elbows, and a comfort mesh lining.
SHOEI RF-1200

The NEW RF-1200 represents a big leap in SHOEI’s sport helmet evolution. Years of development, wind tunnel testing and on-track rider feedback have contributed greatly to this model’s emergence. We’ve tried it and we LOVE it!
REV’IT! PACIFIC H2O RAIN SUIT

When Rev’it! developed the PACIFIC H2O rain suit, one of their main goals was to make it easy to put on in just a few seconds – about the time it takes you to get soaked in a heavy shower. Mission accomplished. The solution lies not only in the long, diagonal front closure, but in the newly developed, non-stick, PVC-free coating on the inside of the Power Nylon outer shell. The result is a 100% waterproof, breathable, and very practical all weather companion that will meet the demands of any rider. Convenient features include a storage pocket on the upper leg. For safety, reflection panels on the shoulders and upper legs ensure great visibility.

KLIM ALTITUDE WOMEN’S JACKET

The Women’s Altitude Jacket is a fully functional, feature rich jacket that was, from concept to completion, specifically designed to fit the female form. This jacket promises to break new ground in women’s motorcycle apparel.

The Altitude Pant for Women is a proud new addition to the Klim lineup. The fit is, of course, designed specifically for women, but you get more than just fashion.

SCORPION SG3 GLOVES

SG3 GLOVES from Scorpion are the sport rider’s gloves with high performance features designed for the track, yet comfortable enough for the street. Best of all: Affordable!
BMW AIRFLOW LINE

When it’s hot out you want AirFlow.
For 2014, the famous two-piece summer suit, for warm weather is better than ever, includes a windproof cover jacket, and is available for men and women.

The lightweight summer gloves have excellent ventilation with leather in the palms and textile on back. Choose from 2 colors: Silver or black.

The airflow boots complete the famous line and are better than ever! You don’t have to sacrifice protection or good looks to ride in cool comfort with the Airflow boots.

Fun with Jeremy Cook

Sidecar Family

Custom Side car rigLongtime customer Lou Hartzell and girlfriend Diane Wood head off on a short 2,500 mile road trip to visit friends and family following the delivery of his new BMW K1600GTL with a high performance EZS Summit sidecar conversion built at Bob’s. Upon their return Bob’s will go over the entire rig one more time before they head home and start planning another season of road trips.

This is the second high performance sidecar rig Lou has acquired from Bob’s over the past fifteen years. The first was a 1999 K1200RS with ARMEC Tremola II sidecar also built by Bob’s on which he logged well over 110,000 miles. That rig regularly returned to Bob’s for scheduled service even though he does not live within 1,000 miles of Bob’s. It returned about a year ago to be thoroughly refurbished before being presented to his daughter in anticipation of his new rigs arrival and delivery. That’s what you call a sidecar family!

National Rally News: Showcase Your Motorcycle Alongside the BMW Powered GG Taurus

image0091After 30 plus years of participating as a vendor at the MOA International Rally, Bob’s BMW knows it is necessary to annually change up its display to keep it new and fresh so the rally continues to be fun and exciting for all those attending. So for Bob’s 2014 MOA rally display we have two BIG announcements. First, Bob’s is excited to announce the first and ONLY GG Taurus in the U.S. will be on display at Bob’s BMW booth, Main Vendor Building, Spaces 179-184! Rally-goers will have the opportunity to be one of the first to see this 3-wheeled, BMW powered machine. But wait there is more…

Your bike could be on display alongside this limited edition, incredible machine! If you are planning to attend this year’s rally July 24-27, “Rolling By The River” in St. Paul, Minnesota, and your bike was modified, customized, refurbished, or restored (partly or completely) at Bob’s or it was ‘thanks’ to Bob’s great inventory of parts and accessories that your bike is what it is today please contact us as soon as possible to join in on the fun we are planning.

The plan is to rotate the display of bikes at Bob’s booth multiple times each day so that we are not holding any one bike hostage too long—we want you to enjoy the rally to its fullest and we know that includes having your bike available to go out and enjoy some great riding! Our goal is to share with the new rally-goers the endless possibilities there are with BMW’s and the ability to bring any model back to life.

If you would like to feel like a celebrity at the rally, simply provide hanna.creekmore@bobsbmw.com with 2 good pictures of your bike (right and left), details of the work Bob’s has helped you with, your contact information including full name, phone number, email, and address, along with a short blurb on why your bike should be showcased in our display at this year’s MOA rally!
