It is quite a view. As I sit down with Linlee, we are surrounded by all the latest BMW motorcycles. A perfect place to discuss her life with bikes. 

The unique motorcycle Linlee was riding when I visited her is a BMW R18 Custom. It is one which the dealership customised as part of a national competition. Nine dealerships could each customise a motorcycle and enter the contest. No surprise then that it has already found a buyer!
