Etc.: Burch bought her first motorcycle, a 1966 BMW, in 1976. She has owned 11 BMWs, Triumphs and Harley-Davidsons since. The bike that never fails to bring a smile to her face is her 1976 BMW R90S, which she has ridden almost 20,000 miles since purchasing it in 1996.

Burch’s countdown of reasons she’s crazy about her 1976 BMW R90S starts now:

Three: Number of decades that the R90S has not only survived but thrived since the model’s introduction in 1974.

Two: “You can do routine maintenance with two tools,” she says. “You can be at your valves in five minutes, unlike modern bikes where you spend the first 45 minutes removing the plastic.”

The sound and the fury: celebrate the machines that changed the world!
