Hi all, After having a little stint in the local hospital last year with back problems, I have cut down my riding to virtually zero. So, today I went and procured this and added it to my stable. Unfortunately the stable needs some thinning too.

Nice addition, so few people appreciate a standard anymore, at least in 'Murica

Any reason you chose a side car instead of a trike? I am not ready to add more wheels, but am looking.

BTW - Anyone know if a 2009 with 7000 miles and a tow-pac is worth $6000?

Did you have to modify the fork rake angle with the side hack? A friend of mine put one on his Goldwing but needed to change the fork rake or grow 36" biceps. He chose the former. When he ran the bike without the car he'd have to reduce the rake.

Yours looks good although the sidecar is on the wrong side. Smile

Re question 1. Trikes don't appeal to me.
I have had a sidecar in my earlier days.
2. In Western OZ it is just a normal cycle with an attachment (bolted on) so no further charges/conditions apply exept for additional lighting specs. A trike is a completely different cla$$ legally.

It's a beauty, Kurt!

Always loved side cars and years ago came close to buying a neighbour's Goldwing outfit. It had the most beautiful paint job and was immaculate. Alas, my wife won't come within 5 feet of anything on two wheels and my Great Dane Jack is too large for a side car Sad
Is this outfit of yours mechanically as good as it looks?
