An increasing number of my riding friends are either adding a sidecar to their stables, or transiting to one. As most are GlobeRiders veterans, they're building new adventure rigs, or patiently searching for used ones. I've always loved the R1150GS Adventure, even at 18 years of age for the earliest models, they're a great tug for a rig. Simple, strong, no CANbus, no firmware, no software, fuel tank removes with a single bolt. Yes, they have design issues, they're not perfect, but they're honest! I've also always like the Ural tub, not only 'cause it's steel, but also because the "floating" suspension system between the tub and chassis (snubber axle in the front, the "Michelin Man" air bladders in the back) make for a comfortable ride for the monkey, and reduces shock and vibration for both the passenger and any gear in or strapped to the chair. DMC has built two R1150GSA/Ural for me, I sold one, still own the other. Early last year, I did a wheels-up refurbishment on another R1150GSA/Ural "barn find", and sold that for a friend of mine. The rig below was just delivered to me. Another friend asked me to find a rig for him, found this one in CO, had it shipped to me, was delivered two days ago. It's the third Black/Yellow Adventure rig I've had in my garage, I guess it's true, "good things come in three's"! As delivered by MotoShippers.com, great outfit if you even need a bike or rig transported. The driver, Jeremy, had his personal KTM in back, he's heading to Baja next! 2002 R1150GS Adventure, 55K miles, Ural tub of uncertain vintage, good, correctly sprung Wilburs shocks all around, remote preload adjusters on the pusher and chair, and best of all, @Stroker 's awesome Advantage rotary-forged wheels on the tug, and I have already received the matching Advantage wheel for the sidecar! In my garage, going to get a thorough inspection, then tear down: As I have seen far too often (in fact, every time), unless done by a skilled owner or specialist technician, the electrical installs and wiring done by a dealer, or even a sidecar builder, are a shitshow (on this rig, the dealer bought a DMC kit, and did the build themselves, for the General Manager of the dealership). Hell, even the Russians ran their wiring in sleeves and had formed sheet metal raceways to protect the wiring under the sidecar fender: And, I may be overly critical, but their "rigging" and installation skills leave much to be desired (yes, those are the lower end of the what used be functional engine protection bars!): More to come!
