OK man, let's just keep it in perspective.
I understand you are excited, but "King of the Adventure Bikes" is a little much.
Besides that's kinda like being the smartest kid on the short bus, here's your gold star big boy.

Welcome to the asylum.
Cheers.

it appears most of you have a hint of sarcasm or jealosy perhaps because you overpaid for your bikes

Paging Cob to the white courtesy phone on what an adventure sidecar should look like....

Biged, you should post some pics up of your hardcore rig off road.

Relevant definition of "Adventure" ?
1.
an exciting or very unusual experience.
2. participation in exciting undertakings or enterprises: the spirit of adventure.

In my book, a shed load of bikes can be described of capable when it comes to providing "Adventure", it's all a matter of perspective. After all some guys venture into the most inhospitable parts of the planet aboard the most unlikely tw0 and three wheel "bikes". On the other hand some venture for part of a day down some off highway track.

An "adventure" either way, it all depends on your perspective. "Vive la Difference"

Howdy bigedf150,

Whatever it is your smokin, would you mind sharing. I think I have a pretty bad arse Ural and it only has about 5 maybe 6 inches of REAL ground clearance, about the same track width, it'll do a 40 degree side slope "IF" the sidecar is down hill, 15 inches of water will get into the stock carb vents but I have fixed that problem but still 15 inches is pretty darn deep for these types of rigs unless driven very slowly so as not to foul the air filter, climb 60 degree grade, depends on what the surface is, plow through two feet of snow, well lets just say I have tried that with varying degrees of success. This was of the not so successful attempts, I was doing just fine until the snow packed UNDER the rig and lifted the front end up and floated the rig on the skid plate and underside of the tub.



This was about five years ago, again doing OK until the cylinder caught the snow and pulled me into the snow bank, two wheel drive and reverse in such situations are a very nice thing.



Yeah, that's 15 inches or more of water, made it through but I wouldn't want to make a habit of it.



Side slopes, yes done a few of those.



Done some pretty steep grades, gets a bit harry sometimes.



Welcome to ADV-Rider and the hacks forum, post of some photos of your rig in action we like seeing folks do crazy stuff.
