    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.

    No. Mobec.

    “ALS” can be translated into English as Active Steering System.

    Armec makes a very typical upside down front, like shown here on a Yamaha V-Max and a Triumph Rocket.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    In the pics shown by 3Rad Peter you can see the latest wide Armec Stradale’s (recognizable by the A in the nose of the hack) with this typical Armec front upside down telescope. <o:p></o:p>

    Here a pic from the EGT 2009:

    [​IMG]<o:p></o:p>

    and one from the EGT 2008, which I both posted before.

    3rad has a Mobec Easydrive for 5 years now afaik, with a lot of miles on it. He should be able to give some additional inside information. :D

    @ 3rad. A pity they didn’t do anything with the bike, apart from some Wilbers upgrades. Black 15” rims and a simple LL would be the least.

    Furthermore I think Mannfred Schmidt’s retail price of 22.900 Euro, which is 29.795 USD or over 33.000 AUD for a very simple bike like this with an even simpler Mobec Enduro, far beyond reality. He must be totally out of his mind. :waysad
