    I thought you all might like to see side-hacks on the USGP course @ Carlsbad, at the “4-stroke Nationals.”
    Many factory riders were there, riding “one-off factory” bikes.
    Anyway, here are some pics of that fatefull day, 04DEC1977!

    This looks awesome. I have a 2013 with low miles so I’m thinking when I get to the point (older) where I don’t want to hold up 600lbs I would like to add a sidecar to it. Do you have a any reverse gear option?

    I'm 72 and have dropped that bike a few times. I can tell you that while it weighs 600# on its wheels, it's more like 1200# when its laying on its side! Therefore the sidecar. I don't know of any reverse gear device available other that the passenger =) It does roll very easily even heavily loaded. I only know of one other TEX with a sidecar so far done by Liberty, mine is a DMC. Since I live in Alaska it was $$$ enough getting the bike from here to Washington state. I think it's a better bike for hauling a sidecar than it is a solo dual sport. I put 20+ K miles on it on two wheels and 10K miles on 3. It's awesome on dirt and gravel with the sidecar no matter the load. I have an electronic trim on it so adjusting for tracking is really nice and I would strongly recommend it. It does seem to be very sensitive to road surface so the electric trim is really nice for compensating on the fly.

    Doing well, I have been asked about the axe mount a couple of times and I would not use the same mounts again. They work and have never completely came open but partially open a couple of times. Tool mounts on line or at the hardware store are available in many styles and if you want to spend a little more their are specialty mount vendors online that carry different style military, police, and fire mounts for tools and equipment.

    The luggage rack is a standard Ural item with wood pickets mounted on the original rack, and it matches the floor boards joined in leather straps for the sidecar. They are primarily made to keep your feet above the water during rain or water crossings not sure they would be effective.

    Slats to go on cargo rack they also make them for nose rack if you have that.

    Side car wood floor board mat.

    Here you can see one mount is closed and the other is snapped open but the ring is still hooked so it is never came completely loose.
