Very Cool Guys. I'm looking forward to it on this side of the state. Looks like you guys are having a better winter than we are. It's supposed to be 52 here this weekend.

Is that Don on the sidecar Beemer?

Hi, Mike

Yeah, that's Don. He had the sidecar drifting around the track. I talked to Aaron last night and he said Dean & Luke had their first race this passed weekend over there. Said he wouldn't do it cause "i'm a little shaky on a bike" - Yeah, sure, whatever . . What a BS'r

Great pictures guys, thanks for taking them. Jon gets the award for most entertaining, he went around all the turns in full opposite lock. Every time.

Paul, the rear is a Kenda K335 4.00-18

If you want a really nice set up, buy the liners for front & rear tires and you'll be able to use longer screws that are much nicer.

Here's the screw pattern;



Looks like this (except these screws aren't timed);



For the front, maybe use a Bridgestone ED77. Here's a sample screw pattern;



Or buy them ready to mount and done by a pro.

Don't forget the tire wraps - here or a few local shops carry them too.

.

Looks like only one screw came partially out and kicked sideways. These 1/2" screws held up pretty good in the dirt tires. I'm going to try and find a second set of wheels and do it right with liners and ice tires for next winter!

Good stuff!

No minutes for fancy french 100 thousand dollar adventure rides, we're way too busy here trying to stay upright.
