    I found out yesterday that loading a Victory with sidecar is a tight fit on a 5-foot trailer after my drive belt broke, but with a come-along and tilt-trailer we were able to put the third wheel atop the railing to get her home:

    I did not have a chance to weigh it as a whole. I do not think we are close to full load, because our dogs are sooo much lighter compared to a human. Together the three monsters weigh less than 20kg :rofl

    Our friends date got this pic over her shoulder this weekend. My bride on her bike and our friend riding with me in the hack. It was her first time in a hack and she had a blast.

    Thanks,kuhjunge
    I have bought a couple of 5.5 x 15 wheels and a pair of 165x75x15 tires for them . When the cush drive rubbers come in , the real work will start on the hubs.
    You are living the dream !

    Nice video. And they had to deal with the track the day after the 24 hours of lemons was done up there. Must have been a fair bit of oil on that track.

    Content of kitchen is TOP SECRET :rofl

    Actually, the kitchen sink had to stay home when we left :eek1
    And we would have already needed one a few times, so now, we got the Ortlieb folding bowl - this will fit :deal
    (I hope it will last, too)

    really nice aluminum body...but won't the passengers become spoiled with all that luxury?

    It looks like "The Ural that went to College" to me.

    Took a little ride over the mountains and stopped at a neat little log cabin to take a photo.
