For those of us that believe we need to have a well-equipped electronically-assisted modern touring machine in order to contemplate a cross country trip, Kim Scholer begs to differ. He is taking a 1970 East German 250cc MZ pulling a Czech trailer ! And this is an upgrade compared to his last such trip !!

I enjoyed the read. Interesting choice for a cross-country road trip. I see he has a Nimbus waiting in the wings in Colorado if the MZ decides it had enough. I purchased my first MZ earlier this year at the York Swap Meet. It’s a mid-sixties 250es with a MZ sidecar. It appears it was a rig from the start. Not a beauty queen, but it’s in decent condition. With a little TLC it could be a local rider and parts runner….I hope so anyway. Haven’t kick it over yet. What sold me was the fuel cap, which is similar to the one in the photo in a recent blog, listing the years of all the ISDT victories. That’s priceless!!
Todd, he is a truly adventurous spirit! It sounds like you made a cool new purchase. I hope we will see it at some point.
