Blog Post No. 36 - BMW Motorrad - A Bavarian Soulstory - Episode 13: "The Wal" by Shinya Kimura

Please Join me along with the BMW crew on our thirteenth episode of #ABavarianSoulstory, I join up with Shinya Kimura, a legend when it comes to customizing and building one of a kind motorcycles. He opened his doors to his 'Hallowed Ground' of a workshop in Azusa California and shows us his own take on the R18 appropriately named "the Wal" as well as what makes the man that is Shinya Kimura

Shinya is an absolute legend in the bike circuit and I have to say it was a total treat to get to meet him in his element and see how he goes about his build process. I remember watching youtube videos about Shinya and his builds so is was a real pleasure to be able to be apart of his most recent work on the R18. Not only do we take you into his shop and learn a little about his back story in bike building and personal life, but we take that final build up to Canyon country and put these R18's through the twists and turns.

Enjoy the Ride!
