J1sisner, welcome to the forum! Where ya been all these years?
Yer /6 is one fine lookin rig. Me like!
^^Yeah. Where you been?
Welcome to the finest Hack forum anywhere!
I have a few more all sidecar related, let me know if you want to see them
Thanks for the welcome! Just got this rig a few months ago so I thought I would share the pics. Took it out for a ride around the neighborhood tonight.....32 degrees....warmest it's been in a month!
Very nice Beemerhack, similar to mine.
What brand of wheels are these ?
Nice bags/cases too !!!
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.
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
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
Of course I had to test ...
Besides the 30l fuel tank - I have 2x10l reserve cans - maybe I need to share some with Milady's bike
More pics, details and the story of SilberWolf can be found here.
I will have some more pics later ... right now the bike is slight disintegrated :eek1
Thanks for the comment, glad you liked it I have just today put the finishing touches on my newest adventure sidecar
will post some pics a bit later today!
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. :)
I enjoyed your video of your very nice rig. I bet she will walk the dog. Please post more videos.
[/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>
