Nov 2016 Bike of the Month
« on: November 30, 2016, 07:56:25 AM »
This months winner has built quite an interesting machine. I really don't know much about one of the mods, in fact nothing at all, but I am quite familiar with the bike.

Congratulations Martin (morrodds) your 1985 Sabre with a sidecar is Nov. 2016's bike of the month.

Yes!  Unfortunately,  it wants to make a right turn simultaneously.  Couple of months ago, we were getting on the Pasadena Freeway.  The on ramps have stop signs at the bottom!  Much of the freeway is subgrade, with concrete walls and little or no shoulder.  Trying to accelerate from a dead stop into medium traffic, I almost popped the rig into that wall when the it jumped up and turned right.  Aleks found it amusing...  But, as you can see by his smile, he's always happy in the chair.

Nice.  I have always thought that was one of the better looking Sabres around here.

Awesome. I just scored 2 Sabres on Craigslist. This is giving me some ideas!

Very coooool.  I always liked my Sabre, even though it was "only" a V45.
