    Picked it up two weekends ago from the "Sidecar Jedi" Perry Bushong of Fort Worth, TX. The rig is essentially a new/remanufacured vehicle now. Perry built it for me so that I could use it as an "Adventure Touring Rig".

    My better half drove it about 1/3 of the long way back to northern NM from TX and so likes it that she is trying to claim it as her own! :D

    looks fabulous! I always like the pics of Perry's rigs. They just seem to look "right".

    Wanted a sidehack that could travel tour every kind of road from the Superslab to Forest Service Roads and based on two weekends of traveling across NM and Texas I'd say Perry hit the bullseye for me!

    Thank you kindly DC! She's ALMOST too pretty to take of pavement.... almost :evil I am headed for the Jemez Mountains this weekend to see how she fares on somewhat less well maintained Forest Service Roads.

    Hey, I was at Perry's that day . Thats a nice rig. You should be proud.
    Are you interested in a trip to Mexico ?
    I will also be on a BMW-Ural combo.

    Thanks! Really you saw Merry taking this pics? The small world of sidecaring I guess.

    Mexico by sidecars? SURE! Someday, you bet! Not until after the Summer heat is done though. :1drink

    What a stunning outfit. Simple yet so beautiful. Looks so 1940s. I would be proud to own that one.

    Well, I have to say that's possibly the first post-1969 BMW (or any modern tig, for that matter) that looks GOOD. Funny thing is, there's really no one thing I can put my finger on to say, "AhHAH- that's the recipe". It just really works.

    So- what makes this more dual-sporty than a regular street machine?

    Does this guy have a website?

    It is very pretty. The only thing I would do is change the valve covers out for the older style.

    BMW's attempts to modernize the look of the airhead in the 80s were ill-conceived.
