    Yeah, I know him. Had a Weisswurst lunch on the the way to TT06 at his place. Thanks Sepp!

    PS.: Do you know where the Zebra bike has gone?

    I would suggest to ask Michi from Motoflot, becuase this was his former rig. He has to know the new owner!

    Now I´m leaving for Sinsheim to see the new Superdrive from Mobec with 24 gears, 12 forward and 12 backwards. This would be a challange, to climb the Tauern only backwards! :rofl

    2nd ride, a lovely 65 degree day in East TN. I still doing some adjusting. Toe-in /lean-out, it still has a just a bit of right pull. I called Rick at Cogent Dynamics ( they manufacture the Moab shock). He had a #400 rear shock spring at my door within hours after I called him re my saggy sag. Great customer service. There was even a roll of lifesavers in the box with my order! Wow what a difference that spring made. Hwy 129 is a great place to discover handling descirpancies. It was really interesting with the sand salt scattered in many of the 318 curves.
    I'm lovin this side car.

    Interesting trip with these rigs. I asked the guy of the Video, if he knows more.
