Besides, it's the middle of the blinking winter there, and they're getting bored to the point where even Foster's starts to look good.

Ahhhh, at last! someone who understand!

I will try and get some pictures of the current (very) offroad rig we are almost finished putting together. Increased ground clearance, full DOM roll cage as per customer request for his wifes security, aux fuel tank in back of modified sidecar body, 3 spare tires on board, automotive rear wheel on original Tiger hub, HID lights, non adjustable struts, DOM subframe, Leading Legs, sidecar brake w/ wave rotor and Brembo caliper, T.I.L.T actuator and fully adjustable spring rate/position on double sided swingarm with 8" of travel and 8" of TILT movement. When its all together I will give 'Getback' pictures to post. It's pretty sweet. Designed to cruise gravel roads at speed and a major trip through the Alaskan Tundra across to the Atlantic.
Cheers, Brock

Seems to have a lack of faith in the rider, too.


I wonder what evidence there may be to support her suspicions

C'mon, there's gotta be a good yarn or two there.

I'm thinkin' you could put a VW engine in the back end of that tub and have the ultimate two-wheel drive.

Seriously tho, quality looking work.
