PM sent. Good luck.
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...
Here is a NX 650 and my Bros Gs 1150 after 3500 klms of a 6000 klm trip in Progress
I just got a velorex 562 attached to me klr last December or so. I have put a few thousand miles on it since then. I took it on the Swinging Bridge Dual Sport Ride. I got diverted onto a very deeply rutted road down to the river near the end of Saturdays ride and thought I wasn't going to make it out without a tow truck and/or a crane.....but I did. Tooke the wife on an overnight camping trip too.....so I would say that this experimrnt is a success(for me). Here's some pictures of some places I've been and things I've done on it:
Mine with a DMC Enduro sidecar. In Cypress Hills (Saskatchewan side) north bluff overlooking the prairies to the west:
Small displacement, heavy flywheel, light weight, very capable, lots of fun !
1960 Greeves Hawkstone/Scottish 1974 Velorex 560
Don in Nipomo
I really love that combo Don. I don't have a sidecar set-up yet, but when I build one someday I'm using yours as inspiration.
You've posted pics of this rig before. Got to be one of the nicest looking rigs ever!
Above is an address to my DR650/2002 Velorex sidecar. I have 300 miles on the sidecar. It still pulls to the right at 55 mph. This is my first attempt at installing a sidecar.
I sure would like to post a picture directly to advrider, but I have no idea on how to do it.
Here you go. Nice outfit
simitat, when you move your mouse over a picture on your bucket page, just single click copy img and then paste that in your post. It will appear after you post your replay.
Heres a few I've had - in order of ownership
K100 & double HRD. Front wheel setup was offset by about 50 mm to the right so it steered odd. I put a K100 rear wheel on and it steered well after that.
R100GSPD and Ural - cant find a pic of this.
1150 GSA & Double HRD
Current one - K100 and much modified DJP - still "under development", but showing promise.
Are the rims from a Citroen 2CV?
Renault 10 I think.
Here's my rig, 2006 KLR650 with a Sputnik sidecar. Custom subframe and connecting hardware from CSM Sidecars. Got a few hundred miles on it since getting everything sorted out and adjusted. Have been on some rough rotted-out roads with the wife in the hack and it works really well.
Just put the stripes on today I ordered from a local sign shop to help "tie in" the car with the bike. I think it looks great!
And if you're interested, here's how I attached the Pelican 1500 tailcase with a system that allows easy removal/transfer of the case to another bike: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=19646281&postcount=764
Did you install the torsion bar? If so, can you supply more information and maybe pictures.
I have installed a Velorex 562 on my DR650 and would like to install a torsion bar.
By the way, you have a very nice looking rig.
No I did not. That was done by CSM ('Claude" as you may have seen in other posts).
