The Trek to Pikes Peak

We tried to get a really early start but it didn't quite end up working as well as we thought. We were on the road at around ten, heading east going towards Utah. The landscapes seemed like more of the same, but once we crossed the border to Utah, the scenery changed dramatically. There were a lot more mountains and the Germans were extremely impressed with the red rock scenery of Utah. After a few hours of driving we came across a very beautiful canyon which was ideal to take some pictures and videos. It was an extremely beautiful area with very light traffic, we took the R1200 RS out, Sven suited up and we ended with some great footage from our photographer Sascha. It was such a cool spot we ended up being there for quite a while, but we had a way to go until Grand Junction, Colorado so we kept going in hopes of getting to our campsite at a reasonable time. We continued on, snacking on peanut butter jelly sandwiches throughout the day and ended up finding very cool spots. When we were back on the road we covered some ground, Sascha and I decided to pull over and grab some more food from our companions Sven and Thilo in the RV. It just so happened that where we stopped was an interesting tree full of tied together shoes and tires, it was quite a sight and completely random. We ended up spending [...]

LIQUI MOLY Oils: The best for your BMW Motorcycle

LIQUI MOLY was founded in 1957 in Ulm, Germany, on the shores of the Danube. The company began out of a patent that was granted for the production of molybdenum disulfide, a lubricant with extremely low friction and that is unaffected by acids and oxygen. Their first marketed product was an additive using liquefied molybdenum disulfide and was used to give the company its name. More than five decades later, LIQUI MOLY is now the number one leading brand of oil in Germany and it is also our preferred motor oil at Wunderlich. We can assure you that LIQUI MOLY products are the finest available anywhere in the world. The research and testing that goes into each and every LIQUI MOLY product is unparalleled. LIQUI MOLY motor oils and engine additives are engineered for high performance and critical applications to retain their lubricity even in cases of almost complete oil loss. We offer nearly fifty different LIQUI MOLY products and accessories across a wide range to keep your motorcycle running at its best. One of the products we carry is the LIQUI MOLY Racing Bike Oil Additive. The additive is a colloidal, molybdenum disulfide solid-lubricant suspended in refined mineral oil. It specially formulated for use in four-stroke motorcycle engines and two-stroke engines. It can be used in engines that have either separated or mixture lubrication systems. If you’re looking to keep the inside of your engine free of particulate and sludge build-up, try both the LIQUI MOLY Pro-Line Engine Flush [...]

Research & Development at Wunderlich

Hundreds of high-quality Wunderlich brand products in our catalog are second nature for many BMW riders. The amount of development effort that lies behind every single part often remains hidden. Technicians, engineers and developers meet at least once each week. They rack their brains, create and review ideas, abandon, discuss and calculate them. When the developers meet at Wunderlich, creativity knows no limits. Erich Wunderlich considers his team a think tank. Most ideas relating to new, innovative products originate in-house or are developed together with selected partner companies. If the team deems an idea worthy, they address the question of whether the product has a chance on the market. Does something comparable already exist? What is the marketing team's opinion on it? And finally, is it feasible in the first place? Once a decision has been reached, the new product begins to mutate from theory to practice as a design drawing. If it is a turned, milled or bent sheet metal part, a 3D CAD drawing is already prepared at this stage from which a first prototype will be created in the two company milling centers or in the prototype workshop. Then, through meticulous manual work, a model is developed with which preliminary tests are usually performed. If it is a complex 3D product, the design, form and function are evolved on a volume model made from easily shapeable materials such as Claytone (a type of plasticine). This is where Wunderlich's state-of-the-art research and development department comes in: the finished [...]
