BARI BARI MACHINE WAS THE MAGAZINE FOR THE JAPANESE STREET RACERS FROM 1986 TO 2002. IT WAS ALL ABOUT SENDING YOUR KNEEDOWN PICTURE TO THE MAGAZINE TO BE JUDGE BY THE EDITORS TRYING TO BE HONORED AS THE RIDER OF THE MONTH.

NOT ONLY THE RIDERS SEND THE PICTURES BUT THE EDITORS ALSO WENT TO THE MOST FAMOST ROADS TO CELEBRATE ACTION DAYS WHERE PROFESIONAL JOURNALIST TOOK PICS AND DESCRIBE THE ROAD AND BEST TURNS.

BEEING IN THE FIST PAGE OR WINNING THE BIG PRICE WAS THE DREAM FOR EVERY YOUNG RIDER IN JAPAN.

IN THE EARLY 2000s AS THE WORLD WAS GETTING IN TO THE "POLITICALLY CORRECT MODE " THERE WAS NO PLACE FOR THIS KIND OF MAGAZINE.

STILL MISSED BY RIDERS NOW IN THEIR 40s MANY ARE TRYING TO KEEP THE HISTORY AND HERITAGE OF BBM ALIVE. THIS IS MY CONTRIBUTION TO THIS PART OF MOTORCYCLE HISTORY.

ALL THIS PICTURES ARE HERE THANKS TO THE HARD WORK OF Mr RYOTA HATA FROM JAPAN WHO OWNS THE BBM PAGE IN FACEBBOK
