I ran the Nexen SB802 165/80R/15 on the Trans Labrador trip and when I finish wearing out the Vredestein I have on now I am going back to the Nexen for my Alaska trip this Summer. These guys say they have the SB802 in Victoria.

I know a lot are playing in the snow right now, but yesterday was a great day here for a run along the gulf.

Hi from Germany,

first, thank you very much for your interest for the new Sidecar Traveller magazine. We got some mails, that there was/is a problem with our internet-shop in German language. Now, my wife has done some translations and she asked me, if somebody wants to go through the files looking for corrections (only the files "single issue" and subscriptions).
So, I would appreciate it very much, if somebody finds a minute to help, (www.gespannfahrer-shop.de and click your flag on the right side).

As this is a sidecar forum, I apologize for my request, ignore the above sentences and here is a small pdf-brochure http://www.winterfahrer.com/index_ht...unterwegs1.pdf
with some nice pics about winter riding!

Thank you very much.

Winterbiker

Winterbiker,

If you ever want any translation or proof reading, just ask. I've got a copy of both of your DVD's neither of which I can understand, but Mrs Reverend is a language teacher
