Knock Off





This is not a BMW. After a quick Google I learned that this is a Chang Jiang from China, a replica of a pre-war BMW. 

I'm pretty sure the owner takes their dog in the sidecar, hence the bumper sticker and license plate. 

It's not a tractor but I'm still pretty excited.

The handle bars looked like THEY had been knocked off. What can I say...boys and their toys.

Sorry, I'm having technical difficulties. I can't explain why Blogger insists on publishing the first paragraph in bold type. I'll review my settings and try to resolve the problem.

My brother-in-law has a Ural (http://www.ural.com/)which actually has some advertising involving riding with your dog. Check out the cartoon ads for the "tourist" model.

Wow, I can imagine your pulse quickening a little at this sight--it looks authentic.

I tried to get a picture of a bike similar to that in motion a couple of weeks ago - with a dog in the sidecar. What I got was a picture of my side-view mirror somehow.
