1985 Paris-Dakar Rally BMW Team Vintage Helmet Bag
One of One.
In 1985, Tiny Belgian Gaston Rahier rides a giant and busted BMW to his second Paris-Dakar rally victory. Against all odds and after crashing his R80G/S during a media appearance, without a spare bike, he rode the damaged BMW across the African continent to victory. Almost a miracle.
It was one of those incredible races which gave us the urge to make a "road book" to install on our Yamaha PW50, riding across the woods behind the family house, pretending we were lost.
