"Tube Frame" BMWs (aka stecktank, or hanging tank BMWs) are those produced from 1923 to 1930, before the pressed steel (or starr frame) bikes came out. They include the R32/R37, R42/R47 and R52/R57/R62/R63 generations. So, this is a very vintage event, displaying BMW's earliest efforts out on the road. On Friday at 10am there will be a guided ride around the Mergeland area across the border in the Netherlands. At 3pm will be Kaffee und Kuchen and at 6pm, dinner followed by tire kicking. On Saturday, the schedule includes a 100km guided tour of the Selfkant region in groups of 10-15 bikes, with a sag wagon provided. Lunch will be in Maaseik, Belgium and a coffee break will be made along the Maas river at Roermond in the Netherlands. A return to Haaren at 6pm with dinner at 7:30pm including grilled Wurst and beer. The cost is 30€ per motorcycle and no more than 50 entries will be allowed.
