ArbDogs? Pics!

Recommended Posts

I found that it is the antidote to road rage when I drive it.  If I had a bright red sports car and carried out a series of aggressive overtakings, or if I was dawdling and holding up a lot of traffic, I would expect a lot of rage,  but this combination brings  out smiles and phone cameras.

It may interest some of you that the bike is a Russian copy of the German BMWs that were used by the army with a machine gun mounted on the sidecar,  some were chasing Steve McQueen in the Great Escape.
 It has a reverse gear

i took it to our local bike shop for an MOT and the old Lincolnshire owner of the shop said he would have to take it down the road to test the brakes .  He came back and asked in his wonderful Lincs accent” ‘Ow many ‘osses ‘as it got”

I told him it said there were 35 in the handbook.  He replied 

“ Wee’ll I reckon thirty of ‘em are deead maeete !”

@Billhook I had the Ural version of that , rode it as a solo , a nice ride M66 ( dynamo ) will dig out the pic , K

Made out of recycled tank metal I suspect!  First saw one when a friend and visited Ukraine just after they had come out of communism in about 1993.

Found out that a lovely lady called Olga was selling them at Hornsea and converting them to right hand drive

Unfortunately this means only one wheel drive as all the left hand drive model have both rear wheels driven

The other clever thing due to good design is that the spare wheel fits all three wheels

Quite right Gary, bring us back into line.  This area is for arb dogs not motorbikes even if the motorbikes are dogs!
