I went down this road early last winter on my 950 Adventure. I finally decided on a V Strom project. But I think it would be rather difficult to do good job with an Adventure. If I recall, Romer is the outfit that build those mounts. I was not overly pleased with the system based on the photos.

Its been on my mind as well. I think the KTM has plenty of good points to mount too. All it will take is time and some skill.

Well I have the time. I have friends who have the skill. Gonna hack my 950 as soon as I have the money for a hack

This hack was indeed made by Roemer in Germany.

Any ideas on the rear wheel/tire setup on this beast?

Dear Qwik, from the first look it is the Vredestein Snow Plus, the dimension is 155/15, 82 Q.
The size, the " Römers" normaly use as back wheel. Coming from the beetle or bug wheels they used in earlier days.
Greeting from Germany, Hans,

Are the mounts really that bad?
This just looks right.
Even ground clearance between the bike and car and what looks like a reasonable car CG
The car is not jacked way up in the air only to be shackled to the bike just a few inches off the ground like so many GS rigs are.

I Know (Virtually) Nothing About Hacks ...
 
... except that Ruffus has gotten too long to ride on the Beemer tank and I was looking at the old, light Easy-Rider sidecar sitting on the rack outside, right near the 640Adv, and thinking hmmmmm . . . . . . .
