    I love this picture, he has a forage cap on and a steel helmet and pith helmet, no weapons, lots of stuff loaded up, this guy was in the German Africa Corps and loaded up and started a trend of adventuring that ended up here, it's kind of hard to see where the photographer sat but who cares.

    I am on my second one, extended restoration. I hope to be riding it later this year.

    My wifes cousin painted me an oil painting of my rig. I think it’s quite good.

    It’s one of those custom paint by number jobs. She’s been doing those as a hobby to pass the time during lockdowns and quarantine and all that.

    Anyway, I quite like it.

    I think it's called the EML Tourer T.

    Same as this?

    Probably then a predecessor of the Tourer T. The European guys will be logging on here pretty soon and one of them will probably know.

    That matt black makes it hard to see the actual shape.

    Early EML, GT model(I think). Most were wider than the one pictured

    It looks like an EML HW1 with the scoop of the nose removed. Sure it is an EML, a very early one.

    I think all the GT's were double-wide. Here's a GT--

    Very similar to the one in the pic if it were a single-wide, but the scooped out nose is different.


    I believe the HW1 was more boxy. This is an HW1 I believe--

    OK, I think I got it. Here's a pic of a rig owned by @Bruincounselor that he described (10 years ago) as a GT. Looks single-wide to me, and the front end is like the one in the pic and not like the double-wide GT I posted above. Same windscreen mounted with same hinges, same step, same fender, same wheel I think, same body lines on the top and side of the nose. I think this is the one. We just need @Bruincounselor to drop in and give us the details.

    That's a blast from the past. I had an EML sales brochure from that era scanned somewhere; I can't put my cursor on it today. I did find the ad I used to sell it and I did specify it as an EML GT. It was for sure a single seater; I recall there was a 2 seater that was essentially the same, but wider. I sold it to an electrical engineer for Polaris/Victory at the BMW national in St. Paul a few years ago. It was a fantastic rig; my kid was having none of it.

    The black bike above sure looks to be it's sister, but not identical. If I can find that brochure I'll post it up.
