    I have two NCs. One of each. Change the gearing 15 to 20%. Light weight, aero side car. I think the nc or ctx would make a fine hack. I would use the duel clutch model.

    Hey all, I just wanted to share the cafe sidecar project that I had been having worked on for OVER A YEAR.:norton ( I'm still pissed about that:deal) Anyway here is a quick shot, I have been riding her to get all of the kinks out of the rebuild. More pics to come, If anyone knows how to invite everyone to see the pics of the build on photobucket please let me know and I will share with you guys.:eek1

    I took the sidecar off, because the mechanic cracked the windshield and has to replace it. So I am enjoying solo riding for now. Plus steering with the sidecar is is very difficult. I will have to figure all that out in time. For now I just want to ride!:D

    BMW with Expedition sidecar,
    Just got it home Monday.....big learning curve ahead. It’s so much more of everything compared to the Gear-up Ural. Now it’s practice, practice, practice and remembering I don’t have Reverse.

    Here is a little something I found to assist in a turn around w/o using your back for a reverse.
    I have been on narrow back dirt rds & needed to turn around (180) on the rd.
    Get as far as you can on the low side of the rd, turn hard headed to the other side. Run up the slight incline, clutch it quick & let the machine role back as far as it will w/o getting stuck in a deep ditch. Repeat this little maneuver until you have power & clutched you way back in the desired direction. This practice will be a bit hard on a clutch……but walking may not be an option for some of us.

    I learned to do this when riding a r12gs & had to stand along side the beast in front of a locked gate on a narrow steep rd.

    I know it will not work on all ''need to turn around'' situations, but it is another little tool to help when you're brave enough to get lost w/o a Ural. :D

    I have used that manuever before. It works with your solo bike too, (its just a little trickier to balance).

    you can also compress the forks aganst a tree or even the front brake and let them bounce you backwards.

    I tried that ONCE. I know it will work if the rider can touch the mother loven earth beneath the bike.

    Thanks guys,

    Eyeball, the car has been buffed and waxed buy other wise it is just like was when it came out of the mold.

    Big Dave gave me a few suggestions on how to add some color to the sidecar, thanks.

    Wolfgang, thanks for the reverse riding maneuver, it’s will be one I’ll have to practice.

    Since I lost the engine / cylinder guards due to the sidecar mountings I need to find another place to mount my driving lights. I like the light bar that mounts under the beak. Any suggestions, recommendations or other ideas ?

    Ron,
