Neil Peart featured in March 2014 BMW Owners News

Neil is featured in the March 2014 BMW Owners News (ON) magazine in a story called "Backroads & Backbeats: Neil Peart Takes the Scenic Way to Work", by Don Argento. This magazine is only available to subscribers,  but John at has kindly posted a copy.


Here's an excerpt (I added the link to a related article on Neil's site):

"When I was in my forties, I decided I had grown up as far as I was going to." In the mid-1990s, he and his pal Brutus started their BMW motorcycling experiences with an R1100RS and a K1100RS that they rode up to the Arctic and around Mexico. He reports, "Those were very unsuitable bikes for adventure touring." So when the first Oilhead GS came out, they both bought those and traveled through Germany, Austria, Italy and Sicily, ferried over to Tunisia and went around the Sahara. He recalls excitedly, "We had all the adventures that adventure travel should contain. We said, 'Okay, this is for us!'" So the GS became his "preferred mode of travel."

Neil was previously featured in BMW ON in April 2005. You can read it on "Motorcycling: The Perennial Gift" (PDF).
