"Today, I was the dog."

I got a call from my dealer, (Shail's Motorcycles in Langley BC) on Thursday regarding an email they had received earlier in the week. It seems a family had been trying for quite some time to arrange a ride in a sidecar for a surprise 65th birthday gift for their mother. They called me and asked if ...

Re: Quick dumb question- Ural pusher rim removal?

When you have it on the center stand for rear wheel removal it is also recommended that you put a tie down strap from the stand to the front wheel or the front of the frame so while you are wiggling and jiggling the wheel out you don't fold up the stand and drop the rear of the bike on the ground. I...

Re: Anchorage - Homer Via Captain Cook Area

Re: Test pic

That is what I hate about smart phones when you try and post a picture anywhere, they always seem to turn.

Re: Best drive tire for a "GearUp" rig?

Re: What's everyone doing to pass the time in isolation?

Well it is Spring and time to plant things so I planted myself on the couch about two months ago, quite near the fridge, I've seen some incredible growth since then.

Re: Long Distance Riding + Pusher Tire

The sidecar tire barely wears, similar to the rear tires on a front wheel drive car. When the pusher tire wears down just swap the two, problem solved, you just doubled the length of your trip with the same tires.
