Oh dear...

...the last time there was this much German machinery on Polish territory people got a bit miffed... There's even an extra R45 under the red tarp there...

And this ain't all of it, say hello to the latest arrival into our little congregation: a 1991 R100GS PD, equipped with the superior Paralever rear suspension/swingarm combo. BMW were allegedly told by the organisers of the original Paris-Dakar rally that they couldn't use that moniker for their bikes, so the official designation is "PD". The tank decals spell it out for you:

This machine will supersede Witold's beloved G/S, for one simple reason: he needed more out of it than the G/S was ever designed to do. And I'm a firm believer that when it comes to motorcycles, the first question you have to ask yourself must be: "what do you want to do with it?"
So, over the next few days, we will see the G/S get put back to 100% original, detailed and ready for its next lucky owner.

Marco likes it too, you can tell he's thinking "holy cow!".
The flower garlands aren't standard equipment, but they should be.
