Hey Ty,

I'm really liking the rig since I pinned the mounts in a few key spots to keep them from slipping and got her all adjusted and aligned. Still taking it slow and trying to get my head around technique, but it's better each time out.

Jan-Feb my plans are to build a "dog box" big enough for both golden retrievers to ride at the same time. With room fore and aft for camping gear. Prolly wood + fiberglass with simple boat-like lines something like the yellow one attached to the BSA earlier in this thread. As it is now, Bailey cries and cries whenever I take Roscoe and leave her home.

Sounds like you're gonna have a fantastic trip. Wish I could tag along, but got too many things scheduled to get away on an extended trip this spring.

Be sure to send a link to whatever RR thread you're doing on the trip so I can keep up.

And if your trip brings you back thru Alabama, you know where I'm at!

Take Care

Howdy!
I meant to ask how Roscoe was taking it..Home alone. Poor thing. You will get them both taken care of. What's better than a dog in a sidecar....2 dogs of course!

I would like some info on your XR650/enduro hack set up. I had a XR650L and sold it due to my lack of ability to set up, weld and assy a sidecar subframe. And ended up with this 2009 KLR650/enduro by Dauntless hack. I love it but what I'm missing is bike clearance. The suspension is weak and the subframe is great but decreases my bikes ground clearance. I'm a tad short in the $$$ department at the moment or I would buy a raising link and better springs in the front and rear. What I really wanted to do was hook up a sidecar to the XRL. I'd like some info on your rig. What kind of sidecar is that? Wasp? Custom hook up? Where did you attach to bike? Did you beef up the bikes frame? Do you have any problems with the bike overheating with it not being water cooled? Sorry to blast you with all these questions but I have 2 more. Are you hireing? I want your job! And your XR650/hack!

One thing I really like about the KLR is how I can throw it around on the pavement as well as dirt, just need a bit more ground clearance.

Pretty neat hack. Is it an XR650L or the XR650R? I'd like to see any close ups of the bike if you have them, especially the hack.

I love the term "greenlaning". It sounds so much nicer then "dualsporting".

This sidecar outfit made a little girl very happy. Jim, her grandfather, is shown doing the final touches on it before Christmas at the CSM Shop.

To Kamikaziozzy and Bucho

Unfortunately for you I am in Wales, part of the UK! My sidecar has an integral chassis made by a chap called Kevin Hollister (hence KHR - Kevin Hollister Racing) with leading links forks and extended swing arm.

I will take some pics of it close up so you can see how it is made. The engine is a 2003 XR 650 Honda with the obsolete Baja Designs electric start and a 2 stage cam to give it more torque. It does about 85mph.

It is very stable and it is surprising where you can take it off road.

Nice one Claude, a shame there ain't no pic of the little (undoubtedly) proud owner.



Though it's not a sidecar, but a tricycle (but I've seen more coming through here ) I'll post a pic of a project in the same range: A tricycle we built for a handicapped kid some years back.




Parts like the donorbike, rims, fenders, mirrors, (even the shopping basket from the local store) and bearings were happily donated by several people and the rest we fabricated ourselves. The icing on the cake were probably the wave discs with the kids name cut out



More pics of the build process for those interested: Brian's trike
