    That was my old HP2- sold it a few years ago. That was a nice bike! I'm not sure it would make a great tug though...

    Sorry for the hijack Drone- have you decided on a new one yet?

    I'm starting to think I need to put a 2v Ducati into this my slowest project bike yet! I need more free time!

    Nice job you did on the HP :clap

    I'd think an enduro hack would work better than the big ADV car, the HP didn't have such beefy components I hear.

    Is that what's considered an enduro hack? I thought the next pic of the small bike was.

    I was thinking more along these lines

    So how do sidecar rigs handle in the deeper gravel sections? Two wheels can get tricky.

    It handles gravel and road construction just fine. Eight days of rain and muddy roads were no problem.

    Dan Alexander...

    Like Dana says...."Handles just fine" on most if not all gravely roads, dirt; rocks, schlammfest, except downed trees(bring chain saw). Ask Drone!

    Even floats n' swims...:rofl....

    Ah, they float!

    I was wondering what to do with those drain holes in the bottom, obviously I need to fill them ... and get a Yamal paddle and mount :D

    Don't say I'm selfish.

    At the Touratech Rally last summer I gave rides to a bunch of different people trying to spread the word about how much fun sidecars are.

    A buddy just sent me a slo-mo video he took. Thought I'd share. Sorry, no audio--just "squeal" a little as you watch it and you'll get the idea--
