GUMMIKUH , in the jargon of German motorcyclists, means Beemer. Literally translated, it means: “Rubber Cow”.
A German motorcycle journalist gave BMW's this nickname, because of the set up of the rear shocks. He used the term because it reminded him of a cow standing up, rear end first. It is the nickname given to R series BMW motorcycles built between 1955 to 1990.
