Im not a extreme newbie to sidecars, I ride a GL1100 with an EML without LL, and it handles quite well in the twisties, some folks cant keep up, I guess Im a fast learner or leaner. My GL can cruise at 85 without issues, and get there quickly. Its a great rig, for now, I would just like to go to 1 rig, I would like that to be my GS

The warning sidecars are not motorcycles, but it's lots of fun and not everyone does it they always start a conversation, and I like my dogs company.DB
