R 75/5 Concourse results from the 2022 Rally

The 2022 Rally wasn't just a celebration of the 50 years of the BMW MOA, it was also a celebration of 50 years of the iconic R 75/5, a motorcycle which served to boost BMW's motorcycle sales and keep the brand fresh and vibrant in a time of economic uncertainty for the marque.

Part of the celebration of the R 75/5 was a Concourse event at the Rally, the results of which are below.

This fully restored R 75/5 was given away to one lucky Rally attendee as a Grand Prize during the 50th anniversary MOA Rally's closing ceremonies. It is indicative of the style and trim of a typical BMW motorcycle of the early 1970s.
