The Adventures of NOMAD.
« 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:

Lekker ry Jup en kie... en ry veilig.

Hijack...  @Vis Arend, Louis, daai 3-wiel ding lyk baie soos iets wat ek seker 40 jaar terug in Oos Londen gesien het. Ou in 'n rolstoel het hom gery. Waar het jy hom gekry?

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:
