Do I need to go leading link as it would be nice to keep the BM electronic suspension. Grateful for ideas and advice.
PM sent. Good luck.

Excuse my ignorance on the subject and probably 205 but what about using a Triumph Tiger 800XC or a BMW 800GS?
Maybe even a 650GS?

I can see why someone would use a 1200GS but to me it is a pig of a bike off road by itself (at least for me). If you had one of these 800s or 650s (yeah I know not that much lighter) you could disconnect it and have a blast with two wheels or three?

Just pondering stuff...

klr and velorex sidecar

I just got a velorex 562 attached to me klr last December or so. I have put a few thousand miles on it since then. I took it on the Swinging Bridge Dual Sport Ride. I got diverted onto a very deeply rutted road down to the river near the end of Saturdays ride and thought I wasn't going to make it out without a tow truck and/or a crane.....but I did. Tooke the wife on an overnight camping trip too.....so I would say that this experimrnt is a success(for me). Here's some pictures of some places I've been and things I've done on it:

I really love that combo Don. I don't have a sidecar set-up yet, but when I build one someday I'm using yours as inspiration.

You've posted pics of this rig before. Got to be one of the nicest looking rigs ever!

DR650/Velorex 562

http://i623.photobucket.com/albums/t...g?t=1344903715

Hello,
Above is an address to my DR650/2002 Velorex sidecar. I have 300 miles on the sidecar. It still pulls to the right at 55 mph. This is my first attempt at installing a sidecar.
I sure would like to post a picture directly to advrider, but I have no idea on how to do it.

simitat, when you move your mouse over a picture on your bucket page, just single click copy img and then paste that in your post. It will appear after you post your replay.

Heres a few I've had - in order of ownership

K100 & double HRD. Front wheel setup was offset by about 50 mm to the right so it steered odd. I put a K100 rear wheel on and it steered well after that.


R100GSPD and Ural - cant find a pic of this.

1150 GSA & Double HRD


Current one - K100 and much modified DJP - still "under development", but showing promise.

2006 KLR650 w/Sputnik Sidecar

Here's my rig, 2006 KLR650 with a Sputnik sidecar. Custom subframe and connecting hardware from CSM Sidecars. Got a few hundred miles on it since getting everything sorted out and adjusted. Have been on some rough rotted-out roads with the wife in the hack and it works really well.

Just put the stripes on today I ordered from a local sign shop to help "tie in" the car with the bike. I think it looks great!





And if you're interested, here's how I attached the Pelican 1500 tailcase with a system that allows easy removal/transfer of the case to another bike: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=764
