Pages and Special Categories[edit]

The special Category Category:BMW motorcycles has been created to bring together all BMW motorcycle articles on Wikipedia, so it is the first place to look to find the gaps or to expand existing articles.

Any group of model (ie. one R2 page covering the R2 Series 1, Series 2/33, Series 2A etc. variants) which is not mentioned also needs to be created. Any improvement of existing articles would be appreciated.

Another, less specific, concern is also the development of the History of BMW motorcycles page.

New articles[edit]
