Touringdave, since I understand you really like the BMW R 100 GS (PD) I’ll show you some pics of those I shot at the Tauernrally over the last couple of years:









And some general shots: traffic jam on the way up (it’s steeper than it looks, but road- and weatherconditions are ok now) and Kahlgryndiger reparing his bike. Muschelschubser in the back.



The Elephantrally with thousands of participants is completely different from the TT with only 100 participants. I normally take a stop for one or two nights at the Elephantrally and then go on to the Tauernrally, since in winter it’s almost impossible for me to get there in one day. The famous and invitation-only-TT is very special as Andreas wrote, because of the conditions there, but even more because of the people you’ll find there.

Wow. It takes all kinds, I guess.
That looks to me like a situation where everyone would need to draw straws to see who gets served for dinner... (if you know what I mean)

Look what followed us home today after the last race of the season for 2008.



We've slightly 'upgraded' from the CSR F1 to a nice modern turnkey custom Becker Motor Works F1 with all the trimmings. It has been christened "Bad MF'er" as in Sarah's capable hands I'm sure it will more than tear up the asphalt.

Today's final race in the CSR saw us chasing the leaders right from the drop of the flag, finding ourselves in third place for a good majority of the race, and then dicing it up with a crazy German on the last lap and taking home a resepctable 4th nipping at his heels. Our best outing yet given that there were 10 'pros' on the grid against our two-season novice butts that were left in the dust with their jaws hanging open. A good send off for the CSR which has served us well for 2.5 seasons of learning/racing.

We locked up 3rd in the championship for 2008 with that finish, and 2009 will see some trophies collecting on the shelf for sure.



Becker kinda took a guess that we'd cinch that third place spot in the points today or take our CSR home in a trash bag trying... so he went ahead and put the #3 on the new F1 for us along with our names.



A cockpit fit for a queen. Custom fit for Sarah's leg length, chest pad for fighting the braking forces the dinner-plate sized vented Willwood rotor/caliper combo on all three wheels is capable of spitting out. Side hip bracing like a bucket seat in a race car to keep her locked in place. Padded knee runners, full hub center steering, Ohlins front and rear, even a carbon-fiber front wheel fender to keep pebbles off the driver.

Adapted ones from a car? That depends on the kind of rear wheel you have.
Some people use snowchains from older cars. For example - chains for a 15" carwheel can be fixed on a 19" motorcycle wheel. I adapted a chain from an old Bully (VW Transporter) to my 16" MZ-Winter-Wheel.



This setup was working perfect.

Talking Hacked Strom

Got this Hannigan Dualsport added on in August by the meticulous Mr Stanley. Will be tearing down this winter to paint the Sidecar and Bike. Trying to get as much riding in as possible before old man winter makes an appearance.

Here is a pic of the mounts and swaybar on the v strom rig pictured. Note that the swaybar is a Hannigan supplied unit in this case.

Cry My Snowmobile

This is my recently departed R100RT/Escort rig.

It had a custom reverse gear transmission, 400 watt charging system, and lots of other upgrades.

It will be missed, but I needed to make room and had to sell to help finance the new rig which will be a R1200RT/Hannigan-LT unit.





I loved that bike...

In the magazine they showed a lot of pics but not one of the rear wheel. I think the brake caliper is pretty close to the MMC Smart wheel.

G'day Richard
What type of tyre is that? I've had no luck finding a 15" M&S tyre in Oz.
The Continental - can't recall it's name - is apparently not imported here. Funny about that.

Ups that's me! I remember that! And I remember two SRs in a kicking comparison:-)
