The terms Bimmer, Beemer or Beamer refer to BMW vehicles. However, Bimmer is the correct term for BMW cars while Beemer and Beamer are used for BMW motorcycles. Why all these different terms? BMW started big in motorcycles and was very active in motorsports then. One of its biggest competitors at the racing track was BSA, which was also a big name in motorcycles..............!
