Hy everybody
I dont know, if its just a matter of age or just bad luck. A few weeks back it started with a swallen ellbow, comes out as a issue called: "housemaids knee"... never ever had problems like that before (never been a housemaid before....).The doc pumped out some liquid about three times, and its not over yet. And now some new pain; wanted to start the M20 lately. Cold out in the workshop, the probably straight 50s oil makes it not easy to turn the engine...and not had the right shoes for the job eather. Wore some kind of rubber boots with soft souls. The kickstartlever normally sits just where the heel starts, but at this position the soul was too soft so i kicked the bike with the footpad..no good decition. I could feel the seine-muscle torn, and now i move in baby steps, have to eat painkiller, inject miself anti-trombose meds and be patient till its over...right kickerfoot is twice as big and the bruises goes down to the ancle.
This weekend i was in the mood to go for an classic trial event at Brockhöfe. Did post a story before, but i cant walk so much, so i will miss it.
Hope i am better in two weeks; there will be a swapmeet at Brokstedt. Did post pics of that event, too. Will have a stall, and gonna show the BMW R50S(with R60 motor), it will go if the price is right.


aint look too bad..?
And i will have some more bikes with me; more for show off, to wake interest and to get contact to other like minded folks.
For sure you gonna get to see some pics when its over.
Cheers Dieter

Hy Kevin
Are you interested in a short trip to Hamburg? Maybe for Brokstedt swap-meet or the Bullerbü Meeting about six weeks later?
Flight from London goes quick, a bike here is of course available. You are welcome.Bring helmet and camera.

Take extra care Dieter. Don't do too much too quickly and let the healing process happen naturally.

Damn, Dieter you're gonna need to take it easy on the old hardware there, my friend. Getting older just means slower healing. So try to be more selective about just how you hurt yourself, alright?

And yeah that BMW is pretty awesome. Too bad (or maybe a good thing) I'm not closer.

Well, DO take care of yourself, brother. Bikes do come and go. But there's only one you.

Life's a bitch, then you get old. Take it easy and see somebody who will work on your rehabilitation if it will help.
It's taken all winter but finally got my right knee back to where I should be able to kick start the Commando. Inattention and the wrong footwear caused it to give me a healthy kickback early last September that left me limping like Chester on Gunsmoke. It never would of happened when I was 50, or even 60, I went and bought a knee brace but that thing's more trouble than it was worth. A good sports injury physiotherapist gave it some attention and recommended pool therapy. Been in the pool doing water exercises all winter and must say the knee feels great now.
Cheers and hope it's better soon. Spring's a comin!

That's a beautiful bike. There are only a few bikes from the 1960s on which you can tour just as if it's a 2005 bike, and this is one of them.

I had a new BMW R65 once and it was a wonderful bike. If I weren't already bike-poor, an R50/2 or R60/2 would be a great addition to the fleet ....

OK, I admit it, I'm addicted to brake fluid.

But I can stop any time I want.
