Has run two km on my new purchased Chang Jiang 750 M1S Sidecar 1964 (BMW R71 sidecar 1938 replika)
would you believe how long it took to go through this entire thread.... :huh... yeah you would
Some great ideas for my eventual outfit.
To contribute to this thread, here's a couple of pics from some past rallies.
Cold Flame 2008
Snowy Ride 2009
At the TTT, I helped one outfit get up THE hill, another gave up & went back home, he said his gearing was too high.
Oh and Ray's on the way to Capital Rally 2009
Here's my former rig - A 2003 Honda VTX 1800 with a Motivation sidecar.
I also had the following rigs:
2003 Yamaha VStar 650 with a Motivation sidecar
BMW 650GS with a Ural sidecar
Now I have my favoirte dream bike a 2008 Kawasaki Concours with a Hannigan sidecar.
Sidecar Girl. Your Honda VTX looks great (beautiful color) but we want to see a larger picture of your current "Dream Bike" - your Concours with Hannigan sidecar.
Cleanliness is next to Godliness
Per your request Neptune03...Here's my current bike, my favorite one so far. I have 16,500 miles on it and am getting it ready to take my first long solo trip.
Thats a work of art,it looks like is going 180mph standing still !!
Oh, wow, Sidecar Girl! Oh, wow! Wow!
that is one awesome rig
hope that you'll be an active member around here, posting many more pictures... and a ride report or 2
thanks for sharing
This guy (the owner/builder of this sidecar rig) operates it much better than I do. I almost crashed it into a motorhome when the chair went up causing the bike to go left instead of right like I intended... LOL
nice rig, above
but, that sure looks LIGHT
Well Hello Julia! At first I wasn't sure who you could be, until you mentioned the motorhome... (which incidentally was hers)! I had no idea you were into Husqvarna also, I've got a 72 450.
Talk about pissing off the Greeves Owners, I'd be hesitant to bring one to a gathering. I pissed Frank off enough with the sidecar- such blasphemy!
He did give me his blessings in the end, maybe next year I can shuttle him from section to section.
Yes Clearwater it is light. The 1960 Greeves was just over 200lbs and more than 20 of that is flywheel. The uber rare 560 Utility tub probably keeps the whole rig around 350lb. Power to weight ratio, horsepower to pounds. It gets pretty light in the loose stuff, slicing and dicing like a swift battle axe. Sometimes I feel like I'm Dave Bickers... on three wheels!
Don in Nipomo
i bet it's a BLAST to pilot
thanks for your reply
i appreciate it
These bikes are wonderful! I would love to buy a older black bike with side car, if anyone would be willing to part with theirs.
I got to run that rig around the block last Saturday.
It's a hoot. Big GS rig & one of those. That's all I need.
john (jpalamar) and i are ALREADY talking about a SECOND RIG... a MUCH LIGHTER one, such as this
we are in FULL agreement with you
glad you got some time in the saddle
i'm sure it was a "hoot"
Coat of fresh paint and CA registration in process, no plates yet.....but the Chinese plates have so far not gotten any Police attention.
cool rig, nick
love those wheels
great color, as well
good luck with the registration process
can't wait to see more of this hack soon
