1965 BMW R50/2

An Evening Affair

Classic Velocity

On a beautiful evening, I decided to take a ride in the almost summer-like temperatures. Shadows were already getting long when I set out 2-Up on the R50/2. One forgets that this bike with its' 27 horsepower was a perfectly good tourer 2-up in its day and makes a competent sidecar machine as well. That is, as long as you are not in a great hurry. On this evening, the countryside was literally radiant with the late evening sun and we meandered around on back country roads past farms and barns and woodlands. We stopped at the site of a replica of the longboats used to ferry cannonballs across the delaware river. The boat was elegantly simple, with no frills, but it carried a lot of weight, and got the job done. Just like the R50.
