canada is guns, steve nash and this, sent by pat castel, editor and ambassador of der polierlappen, which google translates into polishing the overlap. in truth, it means the polishing rag. google translate is such a piece of ****.
pat says he belongs to a “canadian group of riders.” let me see your papers!
somehow i replied with things the funny german speaking canadians enjoyed, so pat sent this bike, saying he’d like to see it on bikerMetric:
he told me that an enthusiast located southeast of paris in villeneuve-sur-yonne, jean-luc dupont from the bmw motorrad dealer panda moto 89 built this six speed bike, called the r1232, in 600 hours over a year and a half. jean-luc values and respects the past but is interested in the latest technical developments. his love of the historical and the technological drove him to create the bike seen here. it’s a unique motorcycle that seamlessly blends the past with the present to celebrate the original r32, but with the modern boxer engine tech twist.
that, and it’s simply beautiful and cool. thanks for the info and the proper german-to-english translation, pat!
