GS1200 & sidecar in PE - NPN44165
« on: June 03, 2014, 04:39:10 pm »
Saw today in Cape Road anyone from the WD forum? Looks like a Rigged4life sc?
WD member let us know where you going?
Another question, is the sidecar wheel meant to run at such a camber seems very extreme and this in s straight line?

That is possibly cos the bracket holding the mudguard broke off in Prince Alfred s Pass and he took it off at Angies

As Lew said, it is indeed Peter and his wife Dalene.  They are not on WD, but have a facebook page of their trip.  They are visiting friends in PE after a couple of days holiday in Hermanus.  As far as I know they leaving PE today heading back home (Durbs area). 
He had some trouble with the mudguard on his way to Hermanus and managed to fix it in Stutterheim, but the mudguard came of again on his route to Angie's.

That wheel looking heavy skeef is normal under load.  That sidecar is seriously loaded, they stop at every farmstall and can't resist buying all the nice stuff.   :imaposer:   
They are great people, stop them when you see them and have a chat.   :thumleft:
