I wonder why they never have a competition for the tattiest tattoos. I am going, then probably go to Rivington afterwards.

Cheers :occasion5:
Oh, do post a pic of your tatty tattoo, Dennis.........

Britains most Tattooed Granny apparently. Plenty more were this came from. It depends on whether people find tattoos acceptable or not on the naked body. :lol:

She's going to be hard to "read" in a few year's time when Canada is located in Mexico :grin:. Personally, I find the value of jewelry will "hit the floor" unexpectedly :grin:.

I can't really appreciate why people put themselves through this but, I suppose, different strokes for different folks.

All the old Viking myths are true then - elfs, trolls and the rest still around - just building motorcycle parts these days instead of kidnapping innocent strangers :grin:

The easy part of the question is what make is that box thing with one wheel fastened to the side of the BMW :-k
Denniss a GEMINI (LO-LINE SPECIAL) It was made by Fred Yates at his premises at 285 Dudley Road, Winson Green, Birmingham. In the early/middle 80s it would have cost 925 fitted, optional extras were an interior light, sliding window. roof rack, tow bar and a Britax safety seat. The additional headroom bit/thing is not standard, someone has added that.
.................
...........a Busmar Astral not a Gemini (very tatty on the outside, but o.k. on the inside with the original seats still!!) theres a picture of it on the site some where, but if youd like a snap of it let me know.

Are you getting a liking for one ??

Living in Leicestershire and riding outfits I do of course recognise the F650, it belongs to Charnwood Classics and legend has it that Jim built it for a customers business that went bankrupt and now uses it himself. He was at our local Christmas toy run with his wife on the sidecar (can't be "in" that sidecar) both in Santa costumes. I think it is actually for sale. A friend of mine owned the bike as a solo although he is really a sidecar man and has at times considered "chairing up" his current solo F650GS.
Any thing else you want to know Dennis?

I have just discovered this, by Googleing "Gemini sidecar" . This is my bike and chair , I had bought it like that from Ebay for £773 and it only failed it's mot on worn sidecar tyre , the photo must have been taken on one of our first trips . It now has a velorex sidecar body and red fairing. I still have the Gemini but it needs a bit of tlc, I have thought about converting it into a trailer.

tubs got that spot on, Gemini same as mine except of the roof mod, should have sunroof there. Mine has the roof rack as well. Previous owner toured Arctic Circle in it and said he sometimes slept in the sidecar. It fits someone over 6 foot tall lying down but due to the wheel being inside you can't get two side by side in it. Have thought a few times at having a go at turning it into a folding camper, trailer tent style cantilever. Beyond my skills though. :)
