    The electric arc was not that bright. I was standing right next to Uwe. We had no welding shield there :D

    G/day Richard.

    That wouldn't be one of your outfits would it?

    If it is, what a small world we live in:D

    The photo's were sent to me from a mate of mind, Wolfie Loher, works for Lufthansa in Frankfurt, and regularly comes to Oz. He is lucky enough to have a GS here in Oz.

    He also sent a photo of this outfit

    I missed a few other outfits, sorry about that, but my excuse was that it was my birthday and I had a few celebratory drinks:wink::wink:

    As you can see, the weather wasn't the best, it rain on and off all weekend and not a great turn up, no doubt due the weather and that there was another big 40th Anniversay rally on the same weekend.

    Just got it's annual test done and back on the road. It's only covered 1300 km's and certainly a head turning experience :freaky

    Here's my baby, 1972 "American Spirit" Spirit Eagle model sidecar, tug 2007 Triumph Bonneville 865cc.
    Ignore the lower front mount, it's being replaced with a Motorvation 70degree mount. I'll post when done. Smaller windscreen in the works.

    I had to laugh reading this. "pootjies" = "pootjes" in Dutch. :wink: And that makes sence.

    Looking at this pic, I suddenly had the urge, to do something with clay :huh , I haven't been doing since "Kindergarten". Even in Europe, these Swiss GG's are very rare. I believe I only once had a "Close Encounter" with one of these irl. :wink:

    The outfit here above, made me think about this Hermeling Laverda Tornado. I wonder why? This is a one-of-a-kind, compared to the also rare GG, of which about 30 outfits have been built.

    Both the GG Duetto as this Hermeling have been made with knowledge. :augie

    A Ducati Paso-Tornado from the hand of Otto Hermeling, spotted at the "Boxer und Tornado Treffen" in Vetweiss/Germany in 2004 (that's the nice thing abt digital photography: it remembers all the details)

    So you found a site with pics of the EGT? Nice! There's a famous lady walking behind the red sidecar, you know?
    <o:p></o:p>
    Have you noticed, that all the outfits you showed have the Continental Ecocontact <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:metricconverter ProductID="15”">15”</st1:metricconverter> car tires? Pretty good to see on the front wheels. <o:p></o:p>

    Here some pics of the red beemer I shot last summer:

    I’ll get back to you with some more pics and maybe some info on the Sahib sidecar (the wide one on the Ural) later. It’s bed time on this continent. Well, it’s for me. Maybe Erik isn’t tired yet and has some more.:D <o:p></o:p>
