Hi !

I found a Picture of my BMW K1600 GT Swing in this forum. Unbelievable ! :eek2:


My Name is Michael, also called Sir Arthur. I`m 52 years old and live in Nuremberg, Bavaria , Germany, Europe.

Since 2006 i drive a 3-Wheeler or leaner, called SWING. In the beginning with a BMW R1150R, since last year with a BMW K1600 GT Sport.

This combination (K1600 / Swing) was the first worldwide.

Another hobby of mine is recording my adventures with my GoPro 4 and i recently began to edit and upload them on Youtube.

If you like to procrastinate I`d recommend my channel on YouTube.

If you are interested in "Leaner" don't hesitate to ask questions !

I'll try to answer them and could also send some useful links to Videos / photos and so on.

Have a nice day

Michael

Hi Michael, and welcome to TWT. As an Army vet and Army brat, I've lived in Bavaria, as well as other parts of Germany (Karlsruhe, Munich, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Pirmasens). I've been to Nuremburg - what a beautiful city center you have.

I lived in Germany from May 1971 to Jan 1974. In Stuttgart I lived on a hill called Bergholtz between Zuffenhausen and Unterterkheim. Between the Porsche and Mercedes factories. Was also in Zweibrucken and Worms.

Nice videos! Looks like you and your passenger need to be on good terms when taking sharp right turns! ;-) NO knee down for sure! :giveup:

Just noticed you are here....
I saw your posts on the K1600 and found you swing sidecar very interesting for the few side car riders on this forum.

I must say Sir Arthur that looks like farfegnugen to the extreme. Enjoy.
Hi Lucifer,
You are absolutely right !
In the last year of 2018, however, I have unscrewed the sidecar more often. With the K16 alone you're just faster in Italy. When I'm traveling with my friends in the Dolomites, we often drive narrow streets. I can get through everywhere - but to overtake another vehicle is only possible at selected locations. That keeps the others and I have to pay for the first beer in the evening.
