May Day Ride

May Day Ride 2010 - Planned for a three day event. Sabine's captures the results.

Bikers Dream & Reality!

List of repairs needed for my S/C after the ride:

1. Two tires worn out!
2. Broken spokes on two wheels.
3. Wheel bearing shredded on one wheel
4. Leaking front fork
5. Kick stand mount broken
6. Kick stand spring missing?

But we made it back home under our own power. True measure of a Great Ride!


  1. Stumbled upon your blog on advrider, nice!

    Looking forward to hearing of your adventures with your rig! I ride a Ural sidecar rig with the 750cc engine, had not been aware what a pain it is to change the oil on a CJ rig when it's got the Beemer engine.

  2. Nice, I've been thinking for a while now about getting a CJ sidecar. I don't really want to hassle with the old CJ engine so a BMW conversion like yours might be ideal. Live in South Africa so I'll have to think carefully before taking action.
