What is a Metallic Print? An Endura Metallic print is a unique imaging paper from Eastman Kodak. Photographically printed, the subtle metallic surface produces a depth and color richness unmatched by any other process. A subtle 3D effect is discernible in many of the images. Giclee printing is swell, but for engine pictures, Metallic is the only way to go. Also, print longevity is an impressive 100 years. Metallic prints will not disappoint.

BMW began its life in aero-engineering ... as anyone who's ever ridden one of its motorcycles might guess. These are bikes as close to airborne as any get. And what's more, 50 percent of all the motorcycles BMW has manufactured are still flying down the world's roads. These are the best, and in this book, the best of the best get their due, with brilliant, full-color photographs of BMW’s classic models and detailed descriptions of their features, all located within the context of a concise history of this legendary marque. From the first engines that brought BMW its first fame, these are the bikes that made history ... and, better yet, gave the most demanding riders a taste for flight.
