Good to see you here on this forum, Hoover.
Hope you benefit from being involved.
please show us more pictures a ride report or 2, if you can
enjoy every mile
Don't you just love the fred yates "caravan" ?
I know I do. :Y
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
Jumbo GB......A fun wk-end and very rewarding. Must get over to the Dutch one sometime.
Brand new saw it today at St. Croix HD in Wisconsin
Posted pictures using SmugShots. Nice!
Add 1 part /7 frame. a R90 engine bored to 1000cc, R65 swingarm, a 450 watt alternator, and most of a 72 R75/5, then throw on a 1970's Globe sidecar and this is what you come out with.........
Love it! There's one of those Beemers with the "toaster" tank near me that a great older gentleman owns... He "thinks" he "may" sell it "someday".... Meanwhile, patience....
Very nice !!!
Did another run this weekend, The Zeelandiarun. Very well organized, from camping, coffee, breakfast until the lunch, ice cream stop and dinner.
pictures, small again, on purpose:
At first solo's, in privies pictures the old BSA sidecar of the Dutch automobile association was shown.
Nowadays the have some more modern equipment. Two of them where assisting during the run last saturday.
The yellow sticker says (in German) "only the Titanic rests lower"
Some American engined trikes. There where about 20 of them, mostly VW engined, some Peugeot, and these V twins.
This weekend, on sunday was the first Dutch sidecar day. EZS, EML, Lak and LBS where there, along several other other stands with camping gear, trailers and sidecar lessons. And hundreds of sidecar fans. Seen a lot of familiar faces. And a lot of interesting sidecars.
Some shooting borrowed from another Dutch forum user FZR600RW
Yep, was there too, had a great day
Great pics. Thanks for posting.
The bike is a Honda Pan European. After a solid study by Honda developed to suit the wishes and demands of European touring riders. Good competition for Moto Guzzi and BMW. The trailer is made by Schuring, a Dutch manufacturer.
The ANWB is the Dutch association of road users. This bike and many cars and vans is used for roadside repairs. The cases and the trailer are stuffed with tools and parts. They also carry a large first aid kit. Very often the arrive first at accidents. The axle of the trailer is enforced to cope with the weight.
I'm a member of the ANWB they have repaired me a few times along the road in past years, and also brought me and my bike home after a serious breakdown at no charge.
