    how much are these things?
    are they fun?
    and the burning question is
    are they any better than a ktm 690?

    No. Just adjusted. Karen wants to do more bush so why not? And cheap as chips. The others are staying as well mate so still be something for you to ride if you come back.

    You know the answer to that. No complaints about the Ural injection, stalling, headshake, fuel filter, air filter, seat. But then again this is an adventure machine and the 690 is an enduro machine. They really test your endurance.:evil:evil:evil:evil

    If there's no photos it didn't happen :evil
    The third wheel adds an element of excitement to riding, you just never know when a down hill decreasing radius off camber left hander is going to jump out and kill you :huh
    We've had ours for a couple of weeks, and I can't see myself ever being without a hack now, they are super practical, can carry a heap of stuff and the Mrs can travel in comfort? What's more, it was her idea to buy it, and she enjoys riding (driving) it too

    so Podge, you reckoned my outfit was rather cool at Birdsville you thought you'd like one. Enjoy and see you at the Victorian Sidecar Rally in Strathmerton.
