Title: The Adventures of NOMAD.
Post by: Gérrard on December 26, 2019, 04:20:21 pm
Its been quite a while since I did a ride report, being busy somewhere else the past few years. The sidecar is ready for our first trip so now I have something new to report on again. Hopefully the enthusiasm will last and I'll chronicle our trips here.

Its become our habit to visit Oasis the past couple of years over New year, so see you there (Snafu if you gonna be there please bring my lighter  :biggrin: ) If all goes well we'll be there on the 30th.

We taking it easy, as it all new to us and I'm learning to ride the rig as we go along. I'll update as we go along.

Ride safe

So the selling point was that Wify will have lots of space to take what she wants. Its was a challenge to get all the shit into a 160L boot, and that excludes the bulk of the camping gear which goes in a 60L dry bag on the carrier.  :lol8: But we can take some home comforts that had no space before, like the electric cooler. And the more I load it, the better the rig handles.

Julle moet dit gate uit geniet.   :thumleft:  :thumleft:

Ja, die rigs ry lekkerder met vrag.  Jy kan nou ook bagasie op die bike se seat pak, balanseer dinge so effe uit en minder windweerstand op die karretjie se rak.       :thumleft: :thumleft:
Ek pak daai 60l sak gewoonlik op die pillion seat sodat dit 'n rugstut vir my is, werk soos 'n bom.   :biggrin:

As jy dalk plek het, wil jy nie asb die sidecar saamvat vir Woody nie.   :lol8:

Ons het daai selfde ding gehad.  Tel die sidekar op, vertrek die volgende dag van George deur Meiringspoort, oor die Swartberge na Calitzdorp / Ladismith oor Rooibergpas en daar slaan die reen ons tot in Knysna.  Dit het hard afgekom, ons was min gespin, ons het 'n ball of 'n time gehad.   Die volgende dag terug huis toe kry ons 'n vieslike wind, daai een het my bietjie klaar gemaak.   :eek7:

Sommer die foto op facebook gekry, maar ek onthou daai ou met sy sidecar bedryf, maar nee, dis nie hy nie.  Daai ou is nog steeds in Oos London, hy ry nou 'n driewiel (nie sidecar nie) met sy rolstoel agterop.  Sien hom nog gereeld rondry.   :thumleft:

Gemiddeld 80 beteken hy ry meeste van die tyd in die omgewing van 100km/h, so dis eintlik 'n goeie spoed.  Myne is baie happy op 110/115, meer as dit raak die weerstand verk@k.     :thumleft:

It was with some anxious antisipation I woke up this morning. Did not sleep much.  But it was that lekker nugget feeling. I've been riding the sidecar a lot the last weeks testing different roads, but real open road is different.

I've driven and ridden tbe Langkloof/R62 a lot the last 40 years or and know every twist and turn. The past weeks I've ridden over and over in my head with the sidecar. I was prepared and it paid off. Not one oops while averaging overall 80km/h.

The car is smooth and handles with ease. No bad habits, but unforgiving. If you get it wrong it bites you, but predictably so I know what to expect and I think therein lies the safety.

All in all I am a happy camper

The following incident occurred in Germany in the early sixties. A man was charged with murder of his wife and found guilty. He had mounted a sidecar to his BMW bike one the left side of the bike, unlike how it is normally done in Germany. He took his wife for a bike trip and had a serious accident. He at one right hand corner took the corner too wide and the side span crossed the white line into oncoming traffic. He himself was seriously injured. The wife did not make it.

Sidecar mounted LHS would be correct here in ZA, but on the wrong side in Germany. They drive on the RHS of the road.

Ons doen. Ons het nooit gejaag nie. My spoed met die bike was maar gewoonlik hier by 110km/h. Met n sidecar kan jy nie jaag nie. Hy sal vir jou byt. Ry so tussen 90 en 100 en gemiddeld hou so 80. Dis waar die sweet spot lę en hy is net lekker onder beheer.

Gerrard, moennie worry oor die grondpad nie.  Blaas jou bande af, grondpad is losser as teer en sal eers effe snaaks voel.  Gou sal jy agterkom dis lekkerder as teerpad ry.  Jy gaan baie minder stress op die handlebars he, dus rus jou arms lekker.  Stadig in die draai en gee vet soos jy uit gaan.  Jy gaan dit geniet.   :deal: :deal:

Ons is hier. Het spot gekry met konneksie. Die grondpad in het sy uitdagings gehad. Pad baie sinkplaat en gooi die kar rond. Vanoggend bietjie inspeksie en onderhoud gedoen. Als goed. Moes die moddeskerm se binnekant bietjie trim want het gekap teen die caliper.

Andersins is als goed.

The last hill before you drop down to Oasis across the valley is a mean one. Badly curregated and most of it was done in first. It was hard on me and the bike. Top of the hill it boiled.

Rest stop before descending to Oasis. Another landing we could walk away from, so a good one. Lyn took it all in her stride.

Ted Simon said the interruptions make the journey.  On the gravel road to Struisbaai the belcrank snaps at the pivot point and the suspension collapses. And I learn another thing... the sidecar comes to a control but sudden stop. The monkey takes it in her stride, looks down and says "Something is wrong"  :lol8:

The part was suspect, but I hoped fornthe best. On other builds I saw the okes use moerse pieces of steel but I thought nah, over engineered and just used the one I did the mock up with. Sidecar build 101. There is no such thing as over engineering.

As my good planning always works out, the break down happens near a farmhouse. While I set about getting the belcrank off Lyn goes to check if they have the tools I need.

They do and as Briv would put it, after using the correct size hammer and 'repurposing' some scrap metal, we are sorted. Hour later and we good to go.

Gérrard, you could've over engineered the whole thing. So that you would not have to worry about failures whilst you struggle to drag 2.5t of metal along. Or you could, as you did, engineer light and purposeful, and then fix /improve weak points as they manifest. Second option is much more intelligent engineering, you end up with an optimised, fit - for - purpose end product. I.e. you can improve the light design, but not the over - engineered one.

Bear in mind I copied a known design and had a target weight of 110kg. I ended up at 130. They said dont try and build light, just build. Parts were over engineered, like the joints and frame strengthening. Like I said the the belcrank worried me and now I know and can design a proper one.

No offense Gerrard, without seeing the failures properly, my simplistic idea is that you welded the tubing components, with settings suitable for the tubing, nice welds no burn through  :thumleft: but maybe some of the thicker mechanical components were welded with the same settings? so not enough penetration in the welds. I may be totally wrong, but a possible? :peepwall:

None taken. I also think that is what happened when I joined two pipe thicknesses to make up the actuator arm.

What he said, and throw in die wind factor and road conditions and it gets worse.  Your main contributor is the sidecar that is "dragged" along.  It is a constant resistance which you must counter via your steering and riding style. 

Saying all above you must learn to "pace" yourself or rather "rest" while riding.  You do this by means of throttle control or using your brakes, front or rear.     
Example, when you accelerate the sidecar stays behind, the bike forward, in other words you moving left.  When you decelerate the sidecar overtake the bike, in other words you moving to the right. Your natural instinct is to counter this by steering, using your , wrists, arms and shoulders which is ok but it will drain you, but by using throttle control you can steer the rig in a straight line without using your shoulders and arms, just your wrist movement.   At a decent speed you accelerate or decelerate ever so slightly which actually steers the rig in a straight line. 
The same with your brakes, front brake also brings the sidecar around, so you turn easier to the right.  Rear brake, if attached to the sidecar, stops the sidecar and you turn easier left.     
Then of course if you have a horrible wind find a vehicle that is traveling the speed you are comfi with and follow in his slipstream.   :biggrin:  And look at the camber of the road, you preferable want the rig to be slightly higher than the bike to prevent excessive dragging to the left.  For this reason Gerrard has the actuator on his rig, to jack the rig to the desired height.   I do not have that luxury.    :patch:  I ride, when it is safe, in the middle of the road or on the other side of the road.   :eek7:   :lol8: 

My English sucks, so hope my explanation makes sense.     :eek7: :biggrin:

Mooi beskryf. Dit is net soos ek dit ervaar. n Bike ry homself en jy beheer hom met nou lyf, n sidecar dryf jy en moet heeltyd input gee. Ek het egter n keer of wat lost in thought geraak wat my sę instink het oorgeneem, maar jy moet heeltyd konsentreer, veral met draaie dat jou entry spoed reg is, maar soos jy my gesę het, my lyf begin my nou vertel as dit reg is.

So ook met ratte oorsit. Jy weet as jy toemaak gaan sy regs wil draai, dus hou jy net 'n bietjie links stuur 100 msec voordat jy oorskakel, dan bly jy reguit :laughing4:

Dink maar daaraan om later daai agterwiel te verander na 'n kar wiel, dit help baie op grondpaaie en vir daai sinkplaat.  Was die naweek na Barries se roudiens in Kirkwood.  Terug huistoe deur Addo park se pad gery.  Daai stuk is nou moer sinkplaat, vernaam teen daai opdraande uit.  Karretjie het hom heel gemaklik gevat, natuurlik met sagter bande ook.     :thumleft:

Na drie dae kom die son weer jot. Ons ry of see toe en maak lekker koffietjie. Die pad is sleg sinkplaat. Dis nie n sidecar se maat nie.

Was net kort ent en het nie wiele afgeblaas nie. Bliksem maar hy't hom gestamp. Probleem is ook daar is klomp joints op my kaar wat hom erg laat raas. Gaan moet kyk daarna

Ek weet jy wil nie hoor nie, maar ek dink jy behoort weer na die rubbers te kyk.
Dit maak dat die tub en die frame nie as 'n eenheid vibreer op sinkplaat pad nie.
Ongelooflik hoe die goed werk.

As my good planning always works out, the break down happens near a farmhouse. While I set about getting the belcrank off Lyn goes to check if they have the tools I need.

They do and as Briv would put it, after using the correct size hammer and 'repurposing' some scrap metal, we are sorted. Hour later and we good to go.


Jip ek sien daai moer en cap screw  :peepwall: :ricky: bly julle het onthou van " repurposing". Lekker om saam met julle te kuier by Oasis  :3some: :thumleft:

Dit lyk of jou verwagting vanaf al jou beplanning van die eerste gedagte aan syspan bou tot nou na wense gedraai het.

Hoe was petrol verbruik met die syspan?

Fantastiese reis! Baie danki vir deel. Hierdie post se foto is ok die beste een. Ek stem ook saam oor die "more fun in a gallon of gas" konsep. My V6 Pajero het hom puik gedra oor byna 4000km vakansie trip. Daai verslag is nog in wording.

Ek verstaan die rubbers gaan goed werk. Probleem is die tub is vas mat M12 boute en wil graag daarby hou. In 12mm staan daai rubbers 50mm hoog en my kar is klaar hoër as gewoon. Ek moet eers plan maak om die kar te laat sak.

great stuff G man 
reminds me a bit of my parents travels with their sidecar , ( in scotland nogal)

my wee worry is that single rear GS wheel on the car , is it not taking too much load , car, wifey and luggage , and then of course your lekker U turns against that wheel ( eg right hand turns)

i would prefer to see a solid rim on there
but i could be wrong

No you are right. And it goes for the bike wheels as well. Lots of side thrust in turns especially front. My people say one has to have the spoke tension checked regularly.

I will in time change to car wheels

Interesting statistic though. Side car wheel bears 30% of the gvm, bike rear 50% and front only 20%.

Hoe klein?  Oppas vir te veel "drag".  Onthou myne het oorspronklik daai tjor wiel op die sidecar gehad.  Toe die 2 omgeruil, karwiel agter op bike en agter bike wiel op sidekar,  en onmiddelik 'n beter ry gehad.  Vandaar dit net so gehou.

Dunno about that.  Had mine on for a good couple of years with almost extreme riding and then also had a trip or two with 3 up.  No probs with the sidecar wheel, also no problems with the spoke tension.  I heard about the spokes story and check mine on a regular basis.  Nada up to now.   But don't take my word for it, I am no technical guru, I only know what works by practical testing it.   :eek7: :lol8:

Ek was maar versigtig optimisties maar sy het my verwagtinge oorskry. Gister in die erge hitte kon sy met shorts, plakkies en t-shirt af ry see toe. Dit geniet sy. Als wat die sidecar toelaat, wat die bike nie doen nie. Pak wat jy wil, slaap as ons ry sonder om bang te wees om af te val.
