After a several-year hiatus, BMW competes in the 48th Sixdays with new works machines based on the R 75/5. Since the venue for the off-road race is in Dalton, Massachusetts for the first time, BMW hopes to increase the brand's awareness in the United States. Although they only achieve 5th place in the team classification in the over 500cc class, Herbert Schek, who played a crucial role in the construction of the motorcycles, can rejoice in winning a gold medal in the individual classification.
