On the subject of BMWs.
When I first started into bikes at 17/18 years old (legally and more than 50 years ago) my older brothers two friends rode what were then old BMs.
One had I think was an R57 and the other an R69s? They loved them to bits and I can see why. Always liked them since myself.
When I was in Barcelona on holiday I saw a model of a really old BM with a side car in a menswear shop window.
It was probably about a foot long (12 inches) metal and immaculate. I went in to see if they would sell it to me. No way. That's the closest I ever got to owning a BMW.
