    thanks for the pictures
    i wish you had taken them AT FULL RESOLUTION
    you can always "downgrade" your images, later
    as you said above.... use all the "POWER" of your camera by setting it at its highest resolution

    still appreciate you sharing with us
    well done

    I'm not sure, but i think it was a common 2 valve Beemer. (look at the grab rail at the seat)

    @ ClearwaterBMW, I'm using that camera just for photo's i' would like to publish. I don't see the requirement why i would take large scale photo's and downscaling them every time i'm publishing them. Our Dutch forum takes 640x480 pictures without any efford and shows them at a good scale. But i will experiment with some different scales to see what purpose it can serve.

    I know that rig. It was hanging around when I had my FJ1200 rig built through Mike.
    I may have a picture or two.

    Those bikes are breathtaking! I’m planning to buy an older black bike with side car. I liked that black R with Steib sidecar.

    :eek1 Do you have any front suspension travel? I see the fork brace is compressing the gaiters some but wow.

    Also, is that an Ural tub on a Velorex frame?

    Sounds if you are pulling my leg.
    In the other case: these events are known as "Jumbo run" after the original event in England.
    We gather together as sidecar drivers and take a passenger on board from a local institution. These can be children with down syndrome, but also young adults who suffered brain injury.
    This Beatrixrun and the Zeelandia run (i'll post pictures) of next weekend acquire a year of organization from local volunteers. we sidecarrists just respond to the invitation and spend a day and some gallons of gasoline.
    The joy is a great day driving, having lunch together and having fun with the fellow sidecarrists and the children.
    The run next weekend is to far from my home so i'll be camping, also organized by those volunteers.
    If you are pulling my leg, yes i'm also mentally challenged :evil
