About bloody time ray. Sweeeeeeeeeet.

Put lights in when it's registered.

When was the last time a cop quoted what you can and can't have on your sidecar. I'm betting never.

When is it's first big run/rally?

ST with a CJ

I thought i would give a test and see if i could get a photo posted.

I bought a CJ chair and added it to my R80ST. I was pleased that it didnt have any wobble at low speed with no damper.

I liked that set up so well i decided to change it over to my old R100GSD to give it a little more zip. I am amazed at how there is still no wobble at low speed. I have only ridden about a thousand miles on the rig so far, but am very pleased with how it handles. The old Yellow Dog has been to the end of South America and back up through the Amazon on a barge. There are lots of miles on that old dog but seems happy to have the hack along for the ride.

The Old Dog

The Old Dog

Fresh out of the barn after many years of rest. I took it over to Amigo Bob aka (Bob's Motor Werks in Roberts, Montna) to freshen it up a little. This chair I bought down in Taft, California from the Harley Davidson dealer. At the time, I rode a 1956 flat head K Model (Sportster). I finally bought a XLCH engine for it in '69 and charged off up to Alaska with all my gear intending to homestead up there. Alaska was almost all gravel roads before the pipeline went in, so it was an exiting trip for sure. The hack is a Pop Dreyer rig and the Harley dealer had all the mounting hardware (it was his hack and was on his Sportster) to hook it up. I of course had never ridden a hack and when we got it all attached he jumped in the saddle and gave me a ride in "MY" new rig. WOW what a ride he gave me. It about scared the you know what out of me when he 'flew' me around town and drifted the corners. I ended up selling the Harley and buying this 1960 R50 and mounted the hack on it. I just looked through all the pages of sidecars and was suprised to not see any other Pop Dreyer hacks. WTF? Where are they? Hiding in another barn some place?

On the road to the BMW Nationals in Gillette, Wyo with Micah.

I'm not too surprised assuming you didn't alter the trail of the bike

That appears to be the stock front end. If so how does it handle?

Just below the summit, checking out the view. The Ural did not like 14,000 ft. Could not get out of first gear going up.
