The Specially Modified BMW S1000RR & F800GS Motorcycles of Stunter Teach McNeil

Chris “Teach” McNeil performed his motorcycle stunt show at one of the largest vintage motorcycle show in the Midwest, the HoAME Vintage Motorcycle Show in Kansas City, MO, thanks to sponsorship from Engle Motors. Most stunters ride readily available Japanese sport bikes from the big four, but Teach does it a little differently, choosing a BMW adventure touring bike, and their latest Teutonic superbike. Let’s take a look closer look at the modifications this stellar stunt rider’s motorcycles, provided by XDL Rider and BMW.

Clymer Girl and the crew didn’t have to go far to attend the HoAME show and rally, as it was just up the road at the Kansas City Airline History Museum in the Downtown Airport. The show was packed with classic vintage and antique motorcycles including British, German, Japanese, Italian, and American makes, all on display. Manufacturers represented include Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, BMW, Harley-Davidson, Triumph, BSA, Norton, Indian, Laverda, MV Augusta, Ducati, Matchless, Moto Guzzi, and more. There were 100% perfect restorations, well worn bikes daily riders, full-on customs, cafe racers, choppers, bobbers, dirt bikes, road racers – any type or style of motorcycle you could image. Also on display were vintage propeller driven passenger planes, including a Douglas DC-3, a Martin 404, and right outside the hangar was a 1958 Lockheed Super Constellation.

Clymer doesn’t have a manual for the F800, or the S1000RR that Teach McNeil uses, but Haynes our parent company in the UK covers both! If you ride one of these great German bikes, you need to pick up the 2006 to 2016 BWM F650, F750 and F800 twins manual, or the brand new BMW S1000RR, R and XR manual.
