Armand had the opportunity to dicuss book projects and motorcycle history with the most notable BMW designer, Hans Muth. Mr. Muth was attending a special celebration of the BMW R80GS and R65LS, both machines influenced by his designs. However, he is best known for bringing the traditionally conservative motorcycle company into the superbike world in 1973 with his stunning R90S. he also designed the radical Suzuki Katana.
Armand had a busy summer this year. Seminars and lectures were scheduled in New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Other than the traditional AMA seminars he conducts, BMW groups were most welcoming. These included the Delaware Valley BMW Riders, the BMW Riders Association National Rally in Woodstok, VA, and the 40th Anniversary of the R80GS and R65LS Rally in Harleysville, PA to name a few. The reception was fantastic.
