Looks like it.
OK, one more of my sidecar rig WUMPA. (Yeah, sidecar guys name their rigs.) This is the Snake River in the Hells Canyon region.
More pics from that same trip if you want 'em -- HERE.
Bike on the rocks is at the top of Cadillac Mountain in Bar Harbour Maine, the others are around Bar Harbour.
ok, cool, was wondering, ya hey der
I never considered a side car rig until I saw yours. That thing is sweet!!
It's both liberating and limiting. You're more limited in route selection than on 2 wheels, but you're liberated because it can safely carry much more stuff (plus your best buddy) and you can camp wherever the hell you want because you got everything you need on-board.
When I was younger, I didn't need much to camp comfortably. But now in my 60's, my "needs" have expanded. So for me, anyway, 3 wheels lets me get to places that I couldn't or wouldn't get to on 2. And no more worries about falling. Crashing, yes, but falling, no.
Love it! Plus, it reminds me of Hogan's Heroes.
Is that a missile silo or the site of an alien landing?
The Étang de Montady (the "pond of Montady") is a drained lagoon or wetland believed to have been constructed by the Visigoths and completed by monks during the 13th century. The area was drained by making radial ditches from a single center point out to the extremities. The water flows to this center point and is then drained through an underground culvert. The field plots are of a triangular configuration due to the radial lines from the center.
The Étang de Montady is near Colombiers, midway between Béziers and Narbonne, in southern France.

Cool looking bike!
I just picked up my 04 adventure with 4400 miles on it a few months ago. I have only taken a few trips with it since.

Could you imagine owning that bike for 9 years and only putting 4400 miles on it? Wow, nice find!
WUMPA is one of the units that has me jonesing for one so bad it ain't funny! If you get a chance lookup the build done on an FZ1 in Forida, that too, is SWEET! He has a video of him throwing her sideways on some dirt roads down there that is AMAZING! Oh yeah, the guy that built and RIDES THE WHEELS OFF IT has no legs, big time kudos to him and his love of life! Yamaha FZ1 dual sport sidecar build, is the build to find it.
YES, a sidecar is in my near future, whether mama knows, or rather, has listened is beyond me!
Like Drone, I find travel in the hack both limiting and liberating. I kept my 2 wheeled GS for those times when I just want to rocket down dirt roads and forest trails...but long distance adventures have been completely transformed by having my furry companion by my side.
I couldnt....lol....I have only had it for 2-3 months and have nearly doubled that mileage....It would be more but it needs new tires, had downtime for fuel fittings breaking, a fuel leak at the o-ring by the fuel pump/filter and now has been down for a seized starter. Rebuilding the starter today and ordering tires...Then the real mileage can start
