sometimes Charlie gets tired of the wind and will lay down for awhile.

The first time it ever rained on him it was a real downpour that sorta came out of nowhere. before I realized what was happening my 85# chesapeake bay retriever crawled up onto the back part of my dual seat (perched behind me).

I was laughing my butt off when I reached around and pushed him back into the hack, and he hasn't done it since. I can't really figure how he could climb up there in a driving rain at 45mph, but he did.

I have a red tarp that goes over it with 4 velcro straps on each front and rear that loops through the racks. I will try to find or take a photo. Was made for when we are parked, one day I decided to ride with it... faster and faster... it is holding well!

Well- shucks. You're making it hard to be humble. I try to keep a low profile.

Dog harness

My plan is to take the hound (Beagle) riding with me when I get the sidecar, a Dauntless Enduro, mounted to my Klr. What kind of harness do you use to keep the dog in the car and not leaping out at speed to chase rabbits.
Thanks
Bill

I swear by the Roadie and a custom tonneau.

Howdy All,

I am in the process of building a Ural rally rig, here Spot and Newt'ell inspect the cut down hack that will serve as a platform for fuel, tools and other needed gear when its finished.

Thanks to you, Mr. Cob, not only do we have a Ural but we'll probably end up with another dog.






We had one of those years ago. Sidecar Sue's been thinking we need another now...


Neat rig, btw. Been peeking in yer Smugmug once in awhile checking your progress. Love your work!

"What Do I Know" Dept;
Since this former sidecar is cut down so much, would it make sense to turn the whole thing around so the trunk will act like a nose for better wind -uh- dare I say aerodynamics? Depending on what you carry, might put more weight rear-ward, also?

Can dachshunds actually climb that high?

(thanks to you know who for making me get off my lazy butt and look the spelling of that breed up)

Howdy Uncle Ernie,

Yes, those little buggers can jump that high, you would be surprised just how athletic these little dogs are.

As to the cut down hack, click this link to be taken to the build of this rig, the hack is a whole lot different looking now then when that photo was taken.

Howdy Uncle Ernie,

I am building the CCXCB to be a dedicated off road rally rig, as such I'll not be taking the wee ones along as "Monkeys" when I drive it. The rig is not finished yet but there is very little left to do to the hack body itself.
