BBBC #13

This post is part of the blogger challenge titled BBBC. Today's topic is:

13. Share a photo of your motorcycle (or car) taken on the same day you write your post.

Given the current state of the Ural (in pieces), the spare bike is what I'm using these days. The picture was taken at the Large Animal Research Station aka LARS, located on Yankovich Rd north of the university. I was just wandering around enjoying the beautiful, sunny day and remembered that I needed to take a picture of the bike somewhere. LARS happened to be just ahead. No muskox were hanging around along the fence to be included in the picture.

This is the current state of the "other bike" and you may notice that one critical component seems to be missing. This may be a good time to actually clean the bike. I hope it doesn't fall apart when the additional structural integrity provided by hardened mud is removed. It's also a good time to finally get some things actually working like the horn. I installed the air horn before I left for my long trip and couldn't get it to work reliably. I figured that I'd just mess with it later. Maybe now qualifies as "later".

Here is the next PBC video. After this, only two more to go...

It's nice to have two side car rigs. It seems that the Ural was getting all the road time. I'd love to read a side by side comparison of the two rigs.

The Ural got a lot more seat time since it's much easier and nicer to drive. The BMW really does feel like the 33 year old bike that it is. Especially with the sidecar.

You are a hardy amazing year rounder! I feel incredibly wimpy having my bike parked because of rain!

Not a true year 'rounder. The sidecar turns the motorcycle into practical, daily transportation suitable for hauling a week of groceries or trips to the landfill. Or any other routine task. But road trips are still fun...
