The outfit here above, made me think about this Hermeling Laverda Tornado. I wonder why? This is a one-of-a-kind, compared to the also rare GG, of which about 30 outfits have been built.








Both the GG Duetto as this Hermeling have been made with knowledge.

A Ducati Paso-Tornado from the hand of Otto Hermeling, spotted at the "Boxer und Tornado Treffen" in Vetweiss/Germany in 2004 (that's the nice thing abt digital photography: it remembers all the details)

So you found a site with pics of the EGT? Nice! There's a famous lady walking behind the red sidecar, you know?

Have you noticed, that all the outfits you showed have the Continental Ecocontact 15Ē car tires? Pretty good to see on the front wheels.

Here some pics of the red beemer I shot last summer:







Iíll get back to you with some more pics and maybe some info on the Sahib sidecar (the wide one on the Ural) later. Itís bed time on this continent. Well, itís for me. Maybe Erik isnít tired yet and has some more.

Hello, Richard who is the famous lady?
I got these pics from the HP sidecar site. They belong to Harald from Austria. The info says they're from Reddighausen in '06.

Is this you?

I agree with you Richard.

I 've been in love with the GG's since I first saw one in a brochure in the mid 90's.

In 2000 Sally and I were fortunate to tour Germany and Swizterland, and we made sure that we visited several sidecar manufacturers.

We were very lucky that when we visited GG they had one of them in for a service. They had stopped making them when BMW stopped producing the K1100 a couple of years previously.

The company were only too please to show off their creation to a couple of gob smacked Aussies.





Note the heat deflection shield in front of the riders right leg, a big problem with K100/1100 motors pulling chairs.



Easy access for the passenger.


Clever and practical thinking everywhere, even using a K1100 electric screen on the side car.


Just down the road is Armec Sidecars, we were in heaven.

Walked in to the showroom, and we were made most welcome.

Come into the workshop said the owner, and we were free to ask as many questions, take as many photo's as we wanted to.





Sally liked the passenger seat'


The workshop was stunning and spotless.






They were just about to take this prototype K1200LTD outfit to Germany to get TUV approval and have ready for the Munich Intermot m/c show the following week.




The price? This was in 2000, when the Aus $ was worth about 47c to the US $, about $80,000, and sorry no left hand version, Gulp!

Oh, by the way this was thier biggest selling outfit in 2000


On the way down to Switzerland, we went and visited Horst Urlich.

A big contrast to Armec and GG. Horst operates out of a barn in a village.
Does all the work himself, and will build anything you want, including left hand side cars




OK Horst, I need 300mm ground clearance, 100lts fuel capacity, and a place for the 50 lt beer fridge.

No worries mate




If only my numbers were to come up in Lotto

BTW Saw this interesting contraption in a European village.
Was very popular in the 70/80's in a certain part of Europe.

Even got to try it out

Dunno about that one, but here in the states we got meter-maid cars

Can't say what this one is, but the old ones were Cushmans.
