Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

That’s the twin cylinder 800cc 2 stroke EML motor that Jarno van den Boomen raced in the IMBA European Championship a couple of years ago, twins are barred by the FIM for the sidecar GPs... They sound phenomenal though...

Politics aside,

The economy is bad when two guys need to share one two stroke bike.

Sidecars were big in California until the late 80s or so.

Those guys go big. It's pretty nuts.

I get your joke but those Zabel engines are not cheap, a bike built new for GPs is roughly 2.5 times more expensive than a new 450 of the showroom floor...

Yeah they go big... This pic is quite old as well but shows what they do, taken during practice at a GP, hence the other crew going slow... Photo

Any idea what the schedule looks like? I checked his Facebook but didn't see anything noteworthy.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Nope... I’m just going from his Facebook but thought I would post it on here... I’m not connected to his team in any way other than being a fan and racing sidecarcross myself...

Some of those guys are nuts!! Couple of the pics in here....wow!

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Not sure... I didn’t take it, it’s been in my phone for ages, I use it to show people when I tell them I race sidecars and they laugh... They soon stop laughing.

The World Sidecar Champion will be doing a demo at Anaheim 1. They are supposed to ride
Pala and DT1. They will only be in the US for 10 days.

12/24/2017 1:51 PM

A1... That’s pretty savage... Bax and Stupelis are animals though and I hope it comes across well... You guys are gonna be blown away by how phenomenal a 700 Zabel sounds...

Twin cylinder 800??!! Where do I get one?

Yall remember that time bad billy and rick melon fired up the old sidecar and stole a case of beer and a box of dogs?

|

12/24/2017 4:33 PM

Aye Carumbah!

Bax and Stupelis doing a 'transition' (or two) at A1 would be the thing of Dreams. It will make other riders 'demos' seem a bit tame.

I hope to see it during the SX Webcast I've paid for.

What sort of four stroke engine can compete with this?

|

12/24/2017 10:10 PM

If they show them on TV at Anaheim, plenty of us will be too hoarse to yell during the main. Insane. Just incredible.

Those guys don’t have shit on Rick Melon and Bad Boy Billy!! Photo

Search for AMS motors, based on the big KTM/Husky but now developed that far that they call them AMS... They are insane if a tad unreliable. It’s about a 50/50 mix of 4 strokes and 2 strokes.

I think it's at Halle and that's 10x worldchampion sidecar the kanibaal Daniël Willemsen with Ronnie Bax the brother of Etienne Bax.
There's a nice story about the table top they jumping they called it the Healey bult.
In the early 90's Mike Healey was telling the shovel driver that the tree tops are to low and he will hit them.
Everybody though he was smoking weed or taking pills, but he jumped that table and wrecked his bike after landing.
There's a video on YouTube 2.:30

My guess is Oldebroek.
Been to Halle a couple of times and the Healey bult looks a bit different. ;-)
