Don't worry the BMW Elitists will be along shortly to show you ALL the errors of your ways...

I almost forgot I'm a BMW elitist and a new guy to sidecars compared to Bob, whether they are a true antique, or the latest German farm implement its all old technology at best, as much as I am not an HD guy they make a pretty decent tug, its torque that gets the damn things moving.DB

Good thing I don't still have my Dnepr or I'd have the Ural guys kicking me around. Sheesh, the injustice of it all.

I am starting to look at this whole,,"oh you mean man" thing like girly magazines. Folks who would never 'read' them like to holler about them,,and huff and puff,,they don't have look at them. Just don't open one.

Folks who just find me so distasteful can chose (when they see my ugly byline appear) to just not look at that thread. Or better yet if they find my stuff of interset to toughen up and be willing to take a bit of smartass. They really should read my little bit that is on the bottom of all my posts. And take it to heart.

That's it Bob your the only sidecar installer in the country who actually knows who Oscar Wilde is and since I love a quote :
A bookstore is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking.

You might hate the Russians, but got nutin' against the queers! Is their anti-gay law why you hate Russians?


Oscar Wilde's plays are light hearted fun, even in the way they take jabs at societal convention. Prolly better than prozack

Hey i don't hate the Russians,,,just don't care for Putin,,,it is those wonderful, ever reliable motobikes they sell that i can't stand. Never in my garage! I take that back,,,i would love a K72, the only Ural that really is a copy of the BMW R71,,flat heads rule! Never have had any problem with those of the gay persuasion. What folks do in their bedrooms is their business,,,,,,now what they park in the garage leaves them wide open for smart ass comments,,,,see above,,hahahaha.

Hey!, that's all there is. If the Uralogists wouldn't pester me about my lack of sensitivity i could stay on topic easier, i've been a painter for 40 years, i'm easily distracted!
See one of the early posts where it mentions i don't have 'done with body' images. I am digging these out of my archives and the images weren't taken with social mediation in mind, they were for my customer and also my records.
I know the aesthetics are soooo important to many,,,i'll try and get more of them in future. The last images with the hack and bike mated on the lowers is all i've got. I did use one of my custom, curved adjustable struts for the front to give foot room with the HD forward control setup. The rear strut was a simple medium length standard USA built strut.
The outfit was good and 'tight' and handled well, easy to drive.
I'd guess the Ural tub, painted to match looked quite fitting and natural beside the old HD. I firmly believe in stout rigging and good aligment as the number 1 priority,,,,then the show and tell stuff,,,paint to match, all that.

I can't tell you how many people call me who have bought a hack,,,immediately taken the tub to the painter,,,then started wondering about rigging,,,never even thinking whether the hack and bike are a good match and or can even be successfully mated. Priorities!
