Both titles were won aboard his 112-horsepower BMW R nineT.

“Such an incredible race season for Kern and his team onboard his trusty BMW R nineT,” commented BMW HP Race Support Engineer Steve Weir. “Two national championships, a box full of wins, and some serious bragging rights on a bike that was truly designed for fun in the sun, canyon runs with friends and Sunday lunches. Or is it? I think it’s a successful merging of heritage and lifestyle with motorsports.”
