This was the pre-production watercooled boxer, he was just testing

The insurance helped him out, he has the 6 cilinder thing now.

Story is simple; he overtook a car and then the car took a left turn on to a bridge at the wrong moment. He hit the Beemer on the right cilinder and crashbar and the driver went fot a swim. Sounds stupid, but shit happens. The car driver never saw the bike and never expected the bike when he took the turn.

Learning moment; most cardrivers are related to Steve Wonder and some of them are swim fanatics

Utilitarian, unique air-cooled opposed twins. These two got it right in their own ways, and both started with the same (strong) foundation.

Here comes the winter.
And then it is time to dismantle, do a full service and check it is in top condition for next spring.
