    I rode north a few miles to eat at a really good Mexican place someone told me about. When I pulled in there was an old BMW in the parking lot. Sadly I didn't get to meet the owner, but I did get a couple of pictures. :)

    Looks pretty cool I like the simplicity of the bike. But I think his sidecar geometry needs a good looking at...............

    I've never had any problems keeping women away. They are naturally repelled by me. :oops:

    I've been over to the Brightona motorcycle event in Brighton several times. There is a very similar machine with sidecar that comes along every year, a bit tatty and in need of restoration really. The owner is 85+ years old, and always arrives with his wife in sidecar. Watching them both get off/out is quite a spectacle. No assistance required or wanted and if offered is politely refused. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Just ran into the Beamer and got to meet the owners this time. Really nice couple. The bike is a 66' just like me :D. He bought it 35 years ago, and used it to carry off his bride when they got married 32 years ago. They are still happy, and riding. :thumbsup:

    Hey, @Steel , I just noticed your bike in the background, I didn't recognize it with both wheels touching the ground.

    That only happens when the motor is off. I'll have to see if I can fix that. :D
