Shot from the sidecar

Evening all

Decided to start a new thread rather then hijack the existing Sidecar photo's.

Feel free to add.

A bit of background, most of these photo's were shot by my wife Sally, who was the co-rider of our outfits for almost 25 years, but prefered to occupy the chair seat, especially in her later years as she fought the insidious disease of breast cancer.
Sally passed away 3rd May 2007, but her spirit and photo's live on.



The next photo's were shot by Sally as we crossed the Nullabor Plains.
Grahame Johns



Claude on his legdenary ,cicra 1951, Matchless. He goes anywhere, any time, any road. He has only 1 touring speed, and that is 50mph (as you can guess, he is somewhat old fashion) but there are few riders who can stay with him, let alone pass him on narrow twisty dirt roads



Beet and Trish



Derrick Sutton on his 600 Kawka. Which by the way he rode in an Iron Butt a couple of years ago and finished in the top 20



John Sargent with interchangeable wheels plus spare.
Note the car airfilter attached.
Calls his outfit "Monty" just to piss me off.

Named after the English general Montgomery who beat the crap out of Rommell in WW2

Bastard




Marc Crighton




Coming into Port Augusta from the west. That's the southern Flinders Ranges in the back ground





BTW road trains rule in outback Oz




Be aware of logging trucks



A very good reason why you don't cut corners on logging roads
They take no prisioners
You will only end up as an ornament on their bull bar

Thanks for sharing Sally's talents!

I downloaded the pix of the Mack pulling the roadtrain doubles (I'm into Mack trucks too). Sally was indeed a talented photographer- that picture would make a great ad for Mack!

Nice one! Dent in 2007? That's my dad on the Guzzi in the back ground. Was it when we rolled in after my puncture? I spent the afternoon in a layby watching hundreds of Honda Monkey bikes roll by, almost pulled a district nurse who stopped to help, was questioned by the police and met a couple of really dodgy blokes in cars who seemed to know a lot about hanging about in laybys. The old boy had to take the back wheel into town about three times as I trapped the first tube then couldn't get the bead to seat and almost ran out of petrol on the last run.

Thanks

Howdy, McCardigan

Thanks for sharing Sally's great photos (and yours, too). It's inspiring to see couples out there sharing road adventures. And it makes me determined to get my wife and dog out there in the Ural, then we'll have some pictures of our own to share.
