G'day.

I know something you guys don't know but I'm not going to tell you It has absolutely nothing to to with Clancy, honestly, trust me, the cheques in the mail and I promise I won't cum in your mouth.

The threat of death is a pretty good good way of keeping my mouth shut ( I can just hear the groans of people saying I wish he would keep it shut more often).

Hi TD, Gad and Johno.

Cheers Ian.

At least it has done those ks. If it was a KTM, it would be stuffed by now.

I like the sound of that sort of unreliability

+1 for Mk iii really suiting the K, 3Legs. Nice proportions IMHO. And the K gives you cruising speed, too.


There is a ride into the Flinder's Ranges on the weekend of 19th/20th March. I expect that will see me christening mine!

I'm sorry for being so stupid, but what is the deal with the front suspension on hacks? Why don't conventional forks work very well?

You drive an outfit by turning the front wheel (just like a car). You ride a solo bike by reverse steering and producing a force to balance the lean angle and resulting forces. Completely different vehicles that just share some parts.

Solo bike forks used to steer a vehicle that doesn't lean have the wrong geometry (trail is set to self centre very positively). They also lack stiffness. As the outfit gets heavier the steering forces become uncontrollable. Changing the trail by modifying the fork trees solves the heavy steering issue, leading links or beefed up forks solve the stiffness issue as well. Light outfits get away with teles, medium ones might manage with wide bars (more leverage) but heavy stuff needs mods unless you are build like Mr. Universe. Hell is a 400 mile day on an outfit with tele's on a road with a heavy camber, your chair side shoulder is taking the weight of the whole lot and the introduction of the odd hot poker couldn't really make it any worse.

For a more technical explanation head over to the hacks section and read the stickys, lots of diagrams and maths.

BTW, there is no such thing as a stupid question. Answers however.......

Here's the link for the design discussion. Some really knowledgable folks provided a lot of great content.

Works brilliantly BUT to sleep inside I have to take all the gear out first so by the time I've done that you could probably put a tent up. The real advantage is not having to sleep on the ground and there's a bit more privacy and you can stand up to change your jocks without all the boys laughing at you

This is the suspension system Im going to use on my current build. This is off my Tenere outfit I recently restored. It's a mini trailing arm. I'm going to get one from the wreckers (only $75) and get the original stub axle pressed out and turn a Holden (Aussie car for our overseas mates) stub axle down to fit so I can use the 15 inch wheel on the camper outfit as its the same as the rear wheel on the K1100.

As mentioned before there will be a back up suspension system, basically a rubber torsion bar setup. Photo later.

Anyway enough babbling on, I have a sidecar to finish. By the way, anyone know how TD's chair is going. I know Clancy's going nowhere.

Later.

I would love to see the frame for the tent and see inside the tent im thinking of a camper body for my freindship 1
