    This afternoon Steve and Verena, some friends of mine from Germany, came over for a visit. It was a very nice afternoon. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    I’ve showed some pics of their new sidecar outfit before last November:

    I took some more shots today, when they left, although evening sun was fighting the camera.

    This 1800 Goldwing was built according to the Trisis concept of Uwe Schmidt Gespannbau, but keeping the original Goldwing drive in stead of using the Trisis frame in the rear.

    An extra fuel tank is built in the right side case. For chair the Hedingham Roke was used and both upholstering of the sidecar and the seat of the bike (making it look less “Goldwing-like”) was made completely new (very nice structure) in order to match. Of course there’s the change of the front but that’s obvious.

    Why I’m showing you this?

    Look for the diagonal struts. No, they’re not there and that’s strange for an outfit of this size. I’m used to seeing that only with a Vespa 200 Squire outfit. And this is not a “leaner” either.

    [​IMG]<o:p></o:p>

    So they left for the “Autobahn”, a cruising speed of 100 MpH is possible. Steering is light, the brakes with ABS are still integral, also on the sidecar.

    BTW: Verena at the moment is having her CB1300 Honda built to become an outfit with the Trisis concept. This will be easier because of the chain drive. I’m pretty curious about it.

    The "sidecar in Nothern Ireland" above is mine. Will look slightly different in a week or two though as about to fit some Wasp leading link forks to it.

    Fitting the forks myself so will try and remember to take piccys. Your mates Oxford looks nice and very modified. I'd be interested to see what he has done to the suspension on the sidecar as that looks very non-standard.

    OK, let´s walk around this one. Dutch Theo Lamers Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 Special with Swiss Armec Tremola I and German Mobec Easy Drive a.k.a. Aktiv Lenk System. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    Since Moto Guzzi always used Brembo´s and also was the first company with a Combined Brake System, this outfit also has a combined system with two Brembo brakes on the hack. <o:p></o:p>
    16” wheels all around. Matt black just seems to be the right “color” for this outfit.

    What a great looking bike:eek1 ,and im not a fan of Guzzi's
    shame about the silly exhaust though. The front end is way OTT,i can appriciate very much the engineering:deal that has gone into it and im sure it works very well,but for me its too much,nice pics Dutch:wink:

    Edit to add,maybe it would look better if the chair was as long as the bike,the front end looks to protrude too much.
