    I could just see me and 100 kilos in that Series 2 buzzin North on Highway one at 40 MPH.
    I would imagine the cartels and the police would both just look and laugh....."stupid gringo".

    The Husky made me do it...it's a 2001 XR650R, plated for California, unlikely to ever sell it.
    Sold my /7 a couple of years ago, but still hang out here and found this thread.
    Some really cool stuff you guys got. From bamboo bicycles to Bamboo's VeeDubs. Keep it coming.

    I followed the directions when I built it, not sure what went wrong?

    I know you said no airheads but someone has to ground this conversation.

    The wife bought a new (for us at least) car. Not your typical airhead but one all the same.

    Seems the Russians and the Chinese weren't the only ones to make good use of the German motor design post WW2.

    It wasn't a German design originally. BMW originally copied Douglas's 1914 500 Flat Twin.

    A recent, time consuming job of resealing the roof gutter. It's an area that is prone to heavy rust on these (and other pinch weld roof) trucks. Self leveling seam sealer and lots of labor made for a nice ending.

    Are you sure about that Rob? The story I've heard was BMW was selling engines to other manufacturers before they started making the R32.

    We have a green one in Germany as well. My mother in law uses it most of the time. We get it back for our month long trip each year[​IMG]

    Apparently they copied the Douglas, called it the m2 b15 engine which they then sold to other manufacturers.

    It's in Ian Falloons book - BMW boxer twins.
