    I have just got a new R1200GSA and am seriously considering putting a chair on it, principally for off road touring but obviously will need to do road as well. I have worked out the mounting system inside the chair for the Great Dane companion but still in a quandary re which chair. A Ural Ranger or the soon to be released dual purpose Premier? Has to be LHS - Australia and thinking of making the third wheel the same as the driven or the front? Save on carrying spares. Do I need to go leading link as it would be nice to keep the BM electronic suspension. Grateful for ideas and advice.:1drink

    I haven't done serious bushwhacking yet but I find my hack does pretty well off road.

    just curious, is that sidecar mounted to the KLR in that pic or is it way ahead of where it normally lives? Looks like 50% wheel lead in this pic :-)

    Greetings all !
    Hey cwadej, Just curious about using what looks like stock forks on the KLR.(looks sanitary). Are you having "dive issues" up front?
    I'm thinking of adding a chair to my 07 and want the strait scoop.
    Thanks,

    Excuse my ignorance on the subject and probably 205 but what about using a Triumph Tiger 800XC or a BMW 800GS?
    Maybe even a 650GS?

    I can see why someone would use a 1200GS but to me it is a pig of a bike off road by itself (at least for me). If you had one of these 800s or 650s (yeah I know not that much lighter) you could disconnect it and have a blast with two wheels or three?

    Just pondering stuff...
