Unusually high it is. Dauntless was asked to give me as much ground clearance under the tub that the rigging and chassis would allow. Makes for a terrific approach angle, and in a rutted or boulder strewn field, I only have to steer for the tug, and the tub's wheel, and not have to worry about high-siding the tub's belly, or catching a hit on the chassis.

A rig with a narrow track and high clearance makes for a willowy ride on the pavement, and you really have to read the camber and entry speed into a turn, but I wanted a design more biased for off-pavement operation, and this rigging gets good grades in the rough.

Best,

To attend the Rallye, it´s hard work for the driver to climb the road up....

Pixeled one year earlier, in 2005! Muschelschubser, you know that guy, don´t you?

Yeah, I know him. Had a Weisswurst lunch on the the way to TT06 at his place. Thanks Sepp!

PS.: Do you know where the Zebra bike has gone?

I would suggest to ask Michi from Motoflot, becuase this was his former rig. He has to know the new owner!

Now I´m leaving for Sinsheim to see the new Superdrive from Mobec with 24 gears, 12 forward and 12 backwards. This would be a challange, to climb the Tauern only backwards!

2nd ride, a lovely 65 degree day in East TN. I still doing some adjusting. Toe-in /lean-out, it still has a just a bit of right pull. I called Rick at Cogent Dynamics ( they manufacture the Moab shock). He had a #400 rear shock spring at my door within hours after I called him re my saggy sag. Great customer service. There was even a roll of lifesavers in the box with my order! Wow what a difference that spring made. Hwy 129 is a great place to discover handling descirpancies. It was really interesting with the sand salt scattered in many of the 318 curves.
I'm lovin this side car.

So after many brake bleeding sessions, swapping out the brake calipers for a new set, and head scratching, I gave up & took the rig to local shop.

It sat at his place for 4 or 5 weeks. New rotors, brake rebuild, new battery & still the brakes wouldn't pump up. So the owner's son who is a real setup guru, looked at it. Bent the mounting brackets for the brakes, shimmed the calipers & they work great now.

Next project is to locate someone who will build me some car wheels for the bike.
Still happy to babysit the little monster, in the interests of blissful domestic harmony.
Team player, I am.
Great looking rig.
