Gerrard, daai saaitskar kom mooi aan! Ek is beindruk.

Vir wat dit werd is, die motorfiets, weens die "rem" effek van die syspan se gewig aan slegs een kant, veroorsaak dat die hele voertuig in die rigting van die syspan beur.

Om dit tee te werk moet jy onbewustelik die hele tyd die fiets wegdraai van die syspan af, om n reguit lyn te hou.

Ek dink jy kan uitwerk hoe daai ge-wegdraaiery op jou bande gaan werk.

Dink maar aan motorbande.

Ek stem saam, dit is maar wat 'n sidecar doen, maar daar is maniere om hom reg in te stel om dit te minimaliseer. Jy al woody se lekker dik arms gesien  :lol8:

I agree fully with any and all negative comments and I believe that this will not work.  Please design it to be able to fit a 1200 as well...

You get Humfree to do it for you. He has the jigs for the1200.
It is a bucket list item.   ;D

Jy moet die sidecar groot genoeg maak dat jy kan slaap in hom.

Dit is nie sommer net vir lek aan die leeu se bal nie. When all of this is used up, the sidecar will be fitted to the bike  :lol8:

Ek sal maar op die uitkyk bly vir 'n Ural of CJ rig vir die R65.  As jy hom eendag in die Kaap kom ry, laat weet.   :thumleft:

Hy sal sekerlik Kaap toe kom. Eerste regte trip sal Oasis toe wees. Dis nou na ek vir almal die kar gewys het. Elke plek waar ek werk laat doen wil hulle weet vir wat dit is en die standard reaksie is : "Rerig, jy moet hom kom wys as hy klaar is."

Dis so, maar ek soek een om my hond mee saam te ry.  Ek wil eers weet of hy daarvan gaan hou.

Alle grappies op 'n stokkie.  Wel gedaan  :thumleft:

Sover ver is ek tevrede dat dit uitwerk soos dit in my kop lyk.

En julle moenie dink ek is te oulik nie  :lol8: My sidecar mentor, Humfree, hou elke stap oor my skouer dop, en ek gaan nie aan voor hy nie goedkeuring gee nie.

Thanks Ryno. Totaal onselfsugtig met raad en leiding terwyl hy met himself kompiteer.
