    Interesting camo pattern, it's pixelated not smooth.

    From a ride in June, outside of Marble, Colorado on a private landing strip.

    On the way to Marble, John (Riding the Adventure 950) spotted a friends plane at a private landing strip, so we turned around and chatted with him for a bit. He was there camping for the weekend, soaking up the mountain air at around 8,000 feet! He mentioned that his plane just had enough power to take-off from the runway at that altitude!

    The airplane is a Cosmic Wind, the rider on the bike is the airplane's owner, famous Lockheed test pilot Tony Levier. the picture was probably taken in the early 1950's.

    Still think that a Silver R1150RT is one of the most beautiful bikes ever made by BMW. Very nice.

    Don't know the date, but here you have a little history from:

    "#3 Cosmic Wind “Little Toni” N20C (red with white trim) built by LeVier & Associates

    Tony LeVier raced “Little Toni” to 4th place in the inaugural 1947 Goodyear, and then turned it over to Billie Robinson, who placed 5th in 1948.
    It was the first of the original three all-metal Cosmic Winds to fly in July, 1947, though the design dates back at least to 1944. In the 1949 Goodyear, Robinson set a qualifying record of 183.326 mph.
    The airplane eventually was exported to England, where it was raced with great success in the first years of midget racing there (after 1964).
    The airplane is currently in Nottingham, UK and conserves the original red and white colors and
    carries its former American Registration N20C. "

    Not trying to get technical, but it is either a Tri-Pacer (what I think you meant) or possibly a Colt. Most likely a Colt would be underpowered in that setting.
