And now for something entirely different (in an R12GS)....

It's taken almost as long as a human gestation, but here's what the stork brought to my garage for the New Year! I'll let the pics speak for themselves, but am happy to reply to any posts!:

Also, how was the braking system to the sidecar handled? I see you have servo / ABS on it. I'm guessing the brake for the sidecar wheel is completely independent of the semi-integral brakes of the bike..

Spent a lot of time agonizing over a sidecar brake, and after testing this rig, and also cross-checking my findings on my Ural Gear-Up, I decided to punt on any brake on the tub at all. Didn't need it, the hexhead has marvelous brakes, and if a hack pilot doesn't use a little more caution entering and exiting corners than a regular rider, he or she is in deep trouble even if they have the finest brakes in the world all around!

There were certainly some design considerations as well. Plumbing into the ABS/servo system is a scary proposition. No way to really proporation the braking to the sidecar wheel, and who knows what would happen if the ABS actuators kicked in? And, a goal was a field detachable sidecar, so even though quick-disconnect hydraulic fittings do exist, it was more plumbing that I didn't want to deal with, and I wanted the stock brakes as reliable as they could be. But, riding it was the final deciding factor. Yes, a separately-operated sidecar brake is cool and great for parking lot grandstanding, but it turns out, for my needs, it just wasn't needed!

Best,

Mike

Do you have any photos of how it mounts? Im actually interested in a hack, but would have to be able to "disconnect" on a whim. Then I could mount my kayaks (and other nutty ideas) appropriately.

If you're referring to how the car mounts to the chassis, no, I don't have any pics, and the rig isn't here right now, but perhaps I can explain in words.

The car is mounted to the chassis via four shock isolation mounts. Each mount has a flanged plate top and bottom. Each plate has four screws in it. So, there is a total of 16 fasteners that fix the mounts to the chassis, and another 16 that secure the car to the mounts. They look something like ones you can see via the link below, but rather than the round/threaded cap, both "sides" have the square mounting plate:

Found this pic which shows some detail of the four rubber isolators that mount the car body to the chassis. The pieces on the ground are the rear bumper, trunk rack, and the belly sheets (to protect the underside of the car from rocks):



Best,

Mike
