Normally I'm not very impressed by BMWs. As a non-owner, and judging from looks alone, they are surely work horses but lose me in aesthetics. Though I should note that the GS series of dual purpose off-road/on-road motorbikes leave me a little lusty, old vintage BMW bikes not so much. That is, until I saw this rig parked near my house this past weekend. A sidecar does a lot for this bike, it's appeal, its grandeur. I'm infatuated.
