    A few details. The bike is a BMW R1150GSA (my02). The front fork is a Sauer and the supportframe is a modified Sauer. The sidecar-specific building work was done by Mueller Gespanne. The rest I did myself. The rear-axle drive is from the R850GS (ratio 37/11). The sidecar is a shortened Mobec Enduro. It has been modified in such a way that our dogs can sit in there and enjoy the scenery.:deal
    Additionally there is a door added to the sidecar which is - when opened - a ramp for the dogs, so they can climb in and out by themselves :D
    I have three Zarges box (2x#40837 @ sidecar, 1x40678 as topcase) and the panniers are Odyssey I from Jesse-luggage. All together, I have about 550l of space for all sorts of sensible and nonsense stuff :deal
    Of course I had to test ...:evil

    Besides the 30l fuel tank - I have 2x10l reserve cans - maybe I need to share some with Milady's bike :crash

    More pics, details and the story of SilberWolf can be found here. :deal

    I will have some more pics later ... right now the bike is slight disintegrated :eek1

    I honestly don't know the brand of wheel. Just know that they're not stock. The bags are nice fiberglass jobbies that stay *relatively* moisture free. :)

    [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][​IMG]I have had this rig finished for a couple of weeks now, but it needed a few adjustments.
    Now fitted MRA screen, changed the rear standard shocks with ones that worked, installed lift blocks under the rear shocks, adjusted sidecar swing arm to level the set up, changed the rear tyres to 55 profile, all in all this has raised the bike by 90mm doesn't sound like much but it has made a huge difference to the ground clearance.
    also fitted nudge bar with road vision light, will be able to set up tent in the dark now.<a href="http://s1354.beta.photobucket.com/user/Mark_Banner/media/IMG_1058_zpsd831a5d7.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1354.photobucket.com/albums/q691/Mark_Banner/IMG_1058_zpsd831a5d7.jpg" border="0" alt="good ground clearance now photo IMG_1058_zpsd831a5d7.jpg"/></a><a href="http://s1354.beta.photobucket.com/user/Mark_Banner/media/IMG_1059_zps130529f4.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1354.photobucket.com/albums/q691/Mark_Banner/IMG_1059_zps130529f4.jpg" border="0" alt="Nudge bar and road view light photo IMG_1059_zps130529f4.jpg"/></a><a href="http://s1354.beta.photobucket.com/user/Mark_Banner/media/IMG_1063_zpsc468a50d.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1354.photobucket.com/albums/q691/Mark_Banner/IMG_1063_zpsc468a50d.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_1063_zpsc468a50d.jpg"/></a><a href="http://s1354.beta.photobucket.com/user/Mark_Banner/media/IMG_1062_zps9c95bf5d.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1354.photobucket.com/albums/q691/Mark_Banner/IMG_1062_zps9c95bf5d.jpg" border="0" alt="under shock spacers photo IMG_1062_zps9c95bf5d.jpg"/></a>

    That looks cool! Custom sidecars that the young people can relate to, can only help our sidecar family grow

    this is one way to spend a sunday afternoon :D

    [​IMG]

    Also there was some interest for pics from the back wheel (6x15) and front fork - enjoy

    The front fork is a Sauer - house brand of Müller-Gespanne
    [​IMG]

    The backwheel room is tightly packed and yes it is a bit towards the left - so I have a "three-lane sidecar"

    Not that I know of mate, unless you've been over east and we've met at a rally somewhere. Currently riding a K1100 outfit.

    Nice! Thanks for finding that. I'll check it out myself and try to verify!
