Geez I,m really hoping that my Triumph Tiger 900 Trek sidecar has the goods for our Australian outback etc. I like it for a couple reasons, triple engine, steel frame, double sided rear swingarms, etc. Oh and I had all the bits and pieces from when tridodtiger's build.

I certainly agree with the view that full steel frames and twin sided swingarms are favourable.
Old school rules ?

If that was pink, you'd be banned by now.

And it reminds me, must get a new front tyre for mine. And some rego, I s'pose.


And a new fuel tap.


And a new fuel pump.


And do some repairs/alterations to some wiring.


Modern version of 'The Never Ending Story' where we ride bloody sidecars instead of big white dogs.
