Technically, I currently own four BMW sidecars: #1 2004 BMW R1150GS Adventure/Ural (Russian - at home in Seattle) #2 2005 BMW R1200GS/EZS Rally "L" (Dutch - at home in Seattle) #3 2005 BMW R1150GS Adventure/Ural (Russian - stored in Heidelberg, Germany)) #4 2008 BMW R1200GS/ABEZ Adventure (Japanese - stored in Yokohama, Japan) I have buyers for #1 and #2. I've signed up for Helge Pedersen's final GlobeRiders World Tour 2020 next year: 15,000 miles/24,000 kilometers, 90 days, starting in Japan, then through Japan, Russia. Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Greece, Albania, then on my own through Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, to Germany. So, I'm building #5! For my soon-to-be-only rig at home, and for next year's World Tour, I'm building a new rig, based on a 2011 BMW R1200GS Adventure, and a prototype SBW/Stepler sidecar. As far as I know, there is currently only one English-SBW sidecar in the Americas, and mine will be the first SBW reborn as a Dutch-built SBW. My builder is Ben Shinmori, of Build Motoheart in Maple Valley, WA. After 25 years working for others, Ben opened his own shop last year. I had the BMW and Stepler delivered to Ben's shop, and today I kicked the project off, spending the day disassembling the bike for re-paint and a general looksee and refit, and began disassembly on the tub for the same. I'm also super happy that I'm chatting with Inmate Stroker (David Hinze), and he's going to fabricate a complete set of Centerline Advantage wheels for the rig, so I'll run automotive tires all the way around. First set of build photos below, I'll keep adding them as we go: Because importing a foreign-titled bike would be near impossible, Stepler agreed to sell only the prototype sidecar. Here it is sitting at the freight forwarder in Holland, ready for crating and air shipment. Crated and block, ready to be closed up. Crated in sterilized wood as required by USDA/US Customs, ready for air shipment. From Holland to Maple Valley, WA USA in 3 days, to include customs clearance and inspection. It's official! Mock-up with the tub on a dolly. Another shot of the mock-up <g>. Rigging bits and pieces, includes a custom trailer-reduced lower TeleLever fork brace. For the tractor, found a lightly used 2011 TwinCam R1200GS Adventure with only 8,500 miles/13,600 kilometers on it. Completed bike disassembly for refit and paint, going to have some nice take-off parts for sale!
