|2008 Alaska here I come!|
|2014 Bye bye baby! Gonna miss you...|
The journey to Alaska with Mac was and continues to be among the highlights of my rides and I've nothing but the fondest of memories of it. Sadly after returning home I became aware of a persistent oil leak in the Pegaso's upper end, or so it seemed. This issue kept the rig out of play and after two attempts to correct the problem I moved it to the back burner to be looked at when time allowed.
Time passed and eventually through a series of purchases and trades I came into possession of 1992 BMW R100GS "Bumblebee" outfitted with an older Ural sidecar. It's a well sorted rig and I chose it for a successful summer tour through several states in the southwest. It proved to be reliable, especially easy to ride and I've decided to keep it as my sidecar outfit.

So what about the Sputnik? Well currently it's living in the barn next to a first generation KLR that I just happen to have a sidecar mounting kit for...
