European Sidecar weekend 26/28th August 2011

Sorry if there is already a post on this, if so, merge this with it.

But this coming weekend the annual European sidecar rally is being held at Hatzfeld Reddighausen, and it should be a beauty! The expected weather looks great, should be a great turnout.

I'll be there( not on a sidecar as planned) but on a white F800GS with Aussie plates but in company with a Zunndap 750 outfit, I believe in light blue colours (ex Luffwatte(sp?) which will now reside in Oz.

I'm in the market for a used European sidecar to buy for this coming winter.
Open to any suggestions, type, bike, price not really important.

Anyone else going?

I'll be there either Thursday night or Friday morning camping.

I've seen some pics in the sidecar-topics on the Dutch MotorcycleForum

There was a link there to the German website:

http://www.gespann-news.de/news---ge...ten/index.html

It says you have to click the first pic to see 45 more pics.

I hope Halflive will post his pics/stories here as well

Thanks, Max

We went on friday. Left home around eleven and where able to drive the first 25km to pass Amsterdam. From there on we only met congestion and rain. Usualy only the Netherlands are crowded and congested. But after the German border again we went to a standstill. The German autobahn, usually a heaven for fast cruising had some wind shear, there where trees and branches laying around and the Feuerwehr was fighting around with chainsaws to clear the roads. And still it was raining.
In the end we covered the 400kmś towards Reddighausen in more than eleven hours. Cycling would have been faster. We put up the tent in another shower of rain working against the dark. During that struggle a German even found the time to moan in case we would block the 20 metres wide passage.
This weekend we adjusted our opinion about the Germans, man, what can these people moan. Mostly about spaces, they are always claiming space for themselves and are great lovers of red/white tape. Not that there was lack of space, the just wanted to claim.
We where there with six people from the Dutch Motor-forum.nl, three MF members from Belgium (we share the same language) went up and down on saturday, making a 600km round trip. Shaked hands with Richard-nl who arrived 2 days earlier.

We had a great weekend, complaining about the weather and the territorial Germans gives a feeling of brotherhood. Also coming from different parts of the Netherlands, it is always fun to poke each other about living on the wrong side of the river. We have a lot of rivers and canals in the Netherlands, so there is always someone on the other, wrong, side. The surroundings, the Sauerland with hills, forests and small villages is great touring.The treffen itself is also great. The field is large enough for the thousands of attendees, Most of them bringing their sidecar and a few solo's. The exposition was about the same as previous year. But being sidecarrists we always found a reason for a technical discussion after seeing something someone else thought to be useful.Sow some interesting bikes though. opening my tent in the morning revealed a proper WW2 R75 sidecar combination. Not a painted CJ with ammo boxes, but the real thing. on the right hand side arrived a Hercules wankel with a period sidecar, matching tent and owner, judging by the looks, not having renewed anything since buying the Hercules and tent new in '73.






There even was someone from the other side of the pond. The way the sidecar was fitted raised some eyebrows. But there was a general admiration for his braveness to drive such a contraption.


A guy build a pair of caravans for his solo bikes.




Saw a bloke with a great T-shirt. seems the Germans still have a sense of humor.
It say's, in German: We also do house visits, worldwide.


The site Max pointed to has a line above the pictures saying "Klick auf 1 Bild führt zu 45 weiteren EGT-Bildern" meaning there are 41 pictures behind every picture.

Off course everyone can read German using Google translate
My riding buddy on the way home, Zeepok, K100, GT2001.


Second picture was on the autobahn, we where doing about 110km/h and where overtaken by a sidecar from Belgium taking maximum advantage of the lack of speed limit. I think he was doing 160km/h

Some more:

Halflive, apart from it's obvious width, what was the issue with this outfit?

Great pics too, thanks.

G'day Halflive thanks for the photos of the rally !! I have a question for you, do you know what wheel they used in the back of the yellow Super Tenere that you took photos of ?? Only reason I ask is I have a Super Tenere outfit already and want to fit a wider rim to fit a car tyre.

G'day Dave have thought about buying a fishing canoe and strapping it on top of the chair but I think I may have some over length issues

But a shopping trolley has crossed my mind tho.

Hello Brendan J, and all others, my name is Hans, i was there for the first time and it was overwhelming.
The Super-Tenere is produced by the german firm März, this bike can be used as a solo, a leaner, mean its flexible atached or realy fixed. Don´t know how to describe it in english. Main thing for you Brendan J is, they keep the original wheels.
We germans don`t claim but like to rest always at the same spot. Many hacker are united in different forums and they meet themselves at these meetings. By over 1200 hacks it is not easy to find the inmates. Cause some arrive many days earlyar, mean tuesday or wednesday. So they try to gather spaces for tents and hacks.
There is an other reason, i recogniced as a meeting rookie. I was very late and only found a tentground myself slidding down the small hill.
But the red and white tape thing was a theme, criticiced by a lot.
The hack from Oregon was driven by a guy in his best years, i don`t know the name. He got the price for the longest distance to aproach, 27000 km.
Excuse my little english and the lack off pictures, but there is something like a worm, rummaging on my PC, so greetings from southgermany Hans
