Piglet

Check out my latest project: http://www.adventuresidecar.com/Piglet/piglet.htm

I am building it to use in my Sidecar/Trike Education Program classes, but it oughta to be a real kick to play with!


I still have the KLR and the Suzuki Bandit sidecars , which are also used during the S/TEP classes. I am starting the classes up again in May and will run through October. You can find out more about them here:

Holy crap Vernon! You've been busy. Those rear tires look bigger than the ones on my truck! You are an inspiration. Here's to the piglet

For some reason I don't think that side stad is needed.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

My trike project is coming along. Afraid I won't have it ready to use in our July S/TEP class, but I am getting closer! Fired it up yesterday for the first time.

I stupidly miscalculated the dif ratio, so I need to find out who built the axle and re-gear it or start over with a new axle. Anybody recognize these markings? No, it is not a Dana Spicer(damnit).





On the up side, it handles well with no wobbles and reasonable steering effort It is louder than hell because I had to cut the mufflers off to clear the swingarm, and the little simulator makes you want to put on the beanie helmet and hang with the "bros".







I found myself saying things like "Ride to Live, Live to Ride" And "Some of the gear most of the time":rofl
