Motorcycle blog Bike EXIF is arguably the web ‘s preeminent showcase for custom bikes (I ‘m rather fond of this featured bike myself). In addition to the bikes they feature, Bike EXIF often interviews key people in the motorcycle world. This week it ‘s BMW Motorrad designer-in-chief Edgar Heinrich.

The man in charge of motorcycle design at BMW Motorrad right now is Edgar Heinrich. He’s the new boss of the company’s Design Studio, after working his way up through the ranks (with one break) since 1986. Heinrich’s personal creations include the R1100 and K1200 series, the HP Megamoto, the mighty Dakar racing machines and the R1150/1200 GS. And he’s been involved in most of BMW’s other big sellers, including the F800 GS. Heinrich has just returned to his native Germany after a stint at India’s Bajaj Auto, which builds around four million bikes a year. Just when he thought he was safe, we hit him with the traditional ten questions of the Bike EXIF Interview.
