Here's another shot of the same bike. It's got a Xiang Jiang sidecar which has a coil over suspension. Awaiting a swaybar from Claude Stanley.

Brings back LWR memories!

What size tank is that? Fuel range on the tank?

Do you think 2 wheel drive would have been usefull or just so messy nothing helps?

It's the BMW optional tank I believe it holds 6.5 gallons. I got about 175-185 miles on it. I had to carry plenty of spare gas crossing the Gobi with up to 400 kms between gas stops.
No, I don't think 2 WD would have helped. More clearance between fender and tire would have made all the difference. The only time I got truly stuck, I just had to chisel the mud between the tire and fender off and I could continue.
Regds,
Jim

Last weekend's ride-to-eat at Martian's place in Elmdale KS brought this out of the woodwork:

Red October Bill brought a container full of these back after spending 2 years in Kazakhstan. Soviet military, 1960s, not Ural or Dnepr. Most he said had been retired to agrarian and utilitarian pursuits.
