    Sorry I have not been able to upload the photos. I will try to take new ones with a different camera or use a different computer tomorrow.
    Wingincamera- we met at Chelan last year I think. We were the couple that did the video recording for you. We hope to get there again this year but will depend on weather. We currently still have 3 feet of snow and are fervently hoping spring will arrive soon!

    I feel for you. We had a little snow and rain this winter, but seeing what the rest of the country had to deal with we can only count our blessings. I bet snow shovels are in short supply. We do remember you and your great taste in bikes and sidecars :D
    Hope to see you again in Chelan.

    Hi All,

    Here's some variety for you. A BMW 1150R set-up for back country. It's done all around Mexico and South America. Heading to Africa next.

    Ride Well,
    Coach

    I finally was able to upload the requested photo of the sidecar subframe from the rear. ( I am having trouble getting the photos reduced in pixel sizes). Hope this is what you wanted.

    I had a blast down there - have you been to Corioco yet? Went from La Paz across the pass near Cumbre, down to Coripata then over to Corioco and up on the old highway - I hear it is alot safer today!:lol3 I'm not sure it would be so easy on a hack because the old road was so narrow I would lean my bike over against the inside of the turns and let the trucks go by!:eek1

    That rig sure looks pretty, great job with the camouflage in the snow :D
    I was wondering about the upper attach points for the sub-frame to the bike? Yours is much newer and I wonder what changes Champion might have done.
    My front sub-frame has been welded since it was installed (prior owner) so I assume it must have cracked at one time. I am thinking about removing both sub-frames and having some gusseting added for added strength. Then I can have it re-powder coated. When the prior owner welded it he just painted over the weld.
    Thank you for posting the photo.
