Nice report and similar trip

Nice RR. My wife and I did almost the identical trip a few months ago, also renting from Randall at aucklandmotorbikes. Randall does a great job! Did you see the glow worms?

Thumb Sticky butt nevermore

Ex officio shorts, Gold Bond powder AND A SHEEPSKIN SEAT COVER! The sheepskin allows air to circulate, in hot weather, and insulates, in cold weather. It's the best!:D

dnepr sidecar

Thanks Red for the good reply. It would go on a 1985 BMW K100RT. It won't be ridden TOO hard, but a better wheel sounds like a good mod.

Dnepr sidecar only price?

I'm thinking about bidding on a new Dnepr sidecar (no bike). The minimum bid is $1300. Appreciate comments on the cost. Too much? About right? Good deal if it's under $1500? Etc. Etc.
Thanks.
