    Do spokes and swingarms feel bad when they are abused?
    Looks painful.

    Look at the flex on the sidewall of the pusher tire. Wonder if that is an original Russian tire? Maybe that's why he carries 2 spares...:D

    Wonder if he's running the drum brake front:eek1

    Probably has lots of practice tensioning spokes and truing wheels. More power to him/her

    Notice 2W drive in case he has to climb out of one of the valleys after missing the turn - low orbit :norton

    That's madeouttaglass.

    He's got a great ride report in the forums above about riding that bike from Washington to New York via the southern US.

    Flying the car to keep the wheel out of the ditch, is what it looks like to me.
    Looks like he was having fun, regardless of the reason.
    Cheers.

    If the car tire was a foot higher I would begin to think he might be a little nutty for entering that corner a little fast.:D

    I would guess that sliding 90% corners at 50-60 mph on gravel might seem nutty, but it sure is fun.

    Granted,there is air between the sidecar tyre and ground,but that`s hardly 'flying'. :wink:

    Check out the deformation on the pusher tire. The car is about to get a lot higher.

    What's crazy is he's barely leaning. Damn good riding I'd say. Maybe there's an after picture of him squatting in the woods. :lol3:freaky

    There are a few pictures of me flying it higher. As I've said in a few other threads with pictures of me, I could have gone faster around the corner if I kept the chair down and powered through. I flew it for a good picture so I could buy the coffee mug. The one I bought has it higher than that.:deal
    Ive ridden my VF100R and FJR through there at much faster speeds. Got the mug for the FJR too.

    Better picture for the coffee mug :clap
    Still a little tough on the spokes, axle, wheel and swingarm, right?

    Agreed.
    You've got the stones sir.
    Keep an eye on the rear spokes and tire.
    They generally don't like that type of abuse.
    Cheers.

    That is the picture that I picked for the mug.
    I think that after 71 years of production, Ural has the building of these down pretty good. That bike just did a 6,000+ ride with no issues whatsoever. (Except burning up 4.5 tires.:D)

    I like the first one by far. It looks like work, planning and control all coming together.:clap
    The second one just looks like you've thrown it up for the fun of it.

    The first one I get. The rider's involvement with the combination is, to my thinking, more subtle.

    anyway. It's an outfit being used. Half the battle is won right there.
