Sidecars rule the otways

Hi we are back from our annual easter mystery ride, which has been on for the last 2 years due tu some of going to the scrapheap rally.

Anyway, the doony man is gonna put up some photos and maybe a vid, of our latast exploits.

Led by our fearless leader Marty, on his Grumpy built triumph triple sidecar rig (with his two kids of 9 and 11 on board , we traversed the Otways from Ocean Grove to Port Campbell via 90 percent dirt.

Fucking unreal.

4 Grumpy built sidecars were on the trip.

Not one bolt or attachment fell out, a tesatamount to Grumpies engineering prowess.

Phil Groves on his 1800 Kwaka has become a sideways dirt track champion sidecarist.

What atrip, i could go on for hours, have i mentioned the performance of the mighty sr500?

Anyway, make an effort to come to the Vic sidecar rally, where we can bore you shitless with all the details.

cheers
Gaz

Mystery ride

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pg2dXfqJ7cc&feature=youtu.be

I reckon we musta done 500 k's on the most sensational dirt back roads ever hardly seen by human beings. Almost no traffic, mostly smooth but loose gravel or snotty hard pack with bark every where but sooooo much fun. Nearly got chucked outta the pub. All good.

Much thanks to Marty for the hard prep work, constant trips to the Otways for hands on research and picking awesome roads.

Best buncha guys to ride with.

Awesome weekend.

Get to the sidecar rally to see some of these weapons and maybe have a little tryout.

Cheers,

Doon.

Love your work Doonie, its a good feeling getting the sidecar sideways.
Looks like you all had a great time,I would have loved to been with you, but I just had too much on my plate to get done before I leave for Hanoi on Friday.

But I will be there for the sidecar rally, but on the F800GS which I will ride to my sisters home in Melbourne and leave there packed for the rally when I return from Saigon on the Friday morning of the rally. Might be a little bit tired though

Hey Doonstrer,
Heard a good line at the Broardford Bike Bonaza weekend... "The best thing about a sidecar is that you can take it off".
See you at Carters Beach.

Chooks are queer Doc

Will be having the odd beer or two catching up with the latest sports results for my beloved Ariel Ping Pong at this fine establishment in downtown Saigon.

We do mate, frequently. The ground that is, then throw the sucker at the next big hill or snotty corner.
