    My wife is cool with the idea of us getting one of these. Probably the Tourist model. Has anyone heard of them? We have a dog that would love to ride in the sidecar. Suggestions and opinions welcome.

    Also, you think it would be difficult to steer one of these with the sidecar attached?

    They're exact duplicates of the BMWs used by the Wehrmacht in the Second World War. Rugged and dependable, but not quite up to modern standards in some aspects [comfort, economy, cleanliness]. Also they are a bit low-slung, so if you are very tall probably not a good buy.
    On the other hand, you get great value for money. The comparable current-day model would be the BMW R1100RT, I think, and that is one expensive motorbike.

    I'm 5'8" or 5'9" - depending on what day it is. Is that too tall?
