Aye Soggz

We just got to sit this bloody virus out.

A boxer in a car beside a horizontal inline bike,  don't see that often.

Have wondered a bit about the story behind a name like Soggz?

Well done Soggz, can be piloted from motorbike or hack, smartly done. ;)
We're going about a normal routine here in Montana, albeit having to put on mandatory masks in public establishments.
Cheers

Don't see many buses anymore, fewer campers.  Way back had a Combi, it was perfect, could put the dogs in the backseat and firewood in the bed.  Being retired Covid hasn't effected us too much, doing lots of bicycling.

Had a '66 Westphalia in the 70's.  Super fun to drive, but was the definition of underpowered.  Just had to kick back and light up a cigarette at the start of every hill.  There were hills I had to avoid because I ran out of first gear before the top.

Won a bet once that a Combi is basically the same length as a Beetle, the same chassis, with the same wheel base. Anyone wanna bet?

Likewise, I have the same tank cover, but no bag that attaches. Have you the original bag or a way to cobble another bag to the cover?
