From last weekend's AMCA meet in Rhinebeck, NY (and a shot of my rig playing in the gravel in the Delaware Water Gap.

interesting.

@ Sidecarjohn. I couldn’t agree more. Some details make me wonder to, but no doubt there’s a damned good explanation for it.
I, for example, like the extra rubber cush drive and dislike more or less the open chain (two of them). And why an u-joint in the front drive and homokinetic or cv joints (hopefully use these words correctly) in the rear and to the sidecar wheel? There’s probably a reason.
Anyway, I’m very impressed by this. It certainly made me think "wow"

Richard, I agree the look of Roland's front looks much better. Function might be the same, but the looks of the MV are imho much more agreeable.
Thought the same about the open chains.

I've known Quaife (and its competitors) for quite some years as racecar driveline specialists, but never realised that they also do dedicated sidecar-and-such parts. I'll surely look into that. Cheers

I'm still a bit puzzled about the theory behind that wishbone set-up, but I'll try to figure it out.

Two meters as an estimated guess for the wheelbase is, I think, quite correct and not unusual for such a set-up.

See any resemblance?

Fantastic looking HD Trans-Moto 600




Very ancient BMW 1952 outfit with unknown (to me) chair, that’s offered here for sale just now for a grand. (local readers: @ Knalpot)

At the Alpine Rally '09

Very well used Ducati Darmah. Enlarged tank & the sidecar chassis welded onto the bike's chassis.




I thought this was a VW, but it's got a radiator. 1.8l ScoobieDoo. BM chassis lengthened to accomodate it.


I hope I don't get yelled at. I know it doesn't have a sidecar, but my mate rode this '68 Guzzi from Sydney. Nice old girl.



and see what can happen when you don't ride an outfit!!!

For your enjoyment.

Got sent this pic tonight, taken at the Numduc Rally earlier this month (in WA) & thought it worthy of sharing.

Dogs (rider) flies, pic by Spaz.

There's an easy explanation for this type of anti-gravitational phenomenom. Due to the combination of
- the epiliptic nature of the earths rotation axis,
- the much lower density of the earths population on the southern hemisphere (SH),
- the reversed coriolis effect evidenced again in the SH,
- the choice of Australians to drive on the other side of the road
- the position of the moon and tides,
this type of result is achievable at certain times of day and in certain locations. Geo-physical Darwinists have postulated that the Kangaroo has evolved due to these factors. The 'leaping outfit', as shown in this photo, is merely a modern manifestation of this ancient physical affect. Furthermore, it is also evidence why the modern Olympics are rarely held in Australia as all world records would likely be shattered creating gross distortions within record books.

Thats what I think anyway.

Save on rubber

Clearly, this young whippersnapper has his own approach to reducing tyre wear.

The red "Beemer" is redder than you think. It's actually a Soviet bike (M-72) with a BMW engine.

You can get a CJ-750 frame for around $300 out of China (+$200 in shipping) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CJ750...Q5fAccessories. I saw one's frame sell on eBay a year ago for less than $100.
