Just read the whole thread and love the work you guys do .

I am in the process of getting a F800GS and am really interested in getting a sidecar set up on it. One issue until now was getting one wide enough to take both of my kids with me but with the M72DX this shouldn't be a problem. Will the DX work with the F8GS ?

Also in the photo I noticed that you are using a leading link set up. Is this necessary with the F8GS as I do not see it on the bigger bikes ? or just an option that the customer wanted.

Looking forward to your reply.

Gord

Yes, the DX will work fine with the F800GS. The leading link makes for lighter steering, you may be able to live with heavy steering. On the larger GS type bikes the reason that you do not see a leading link front end is that with BMW's Telelever front end, we can relocate the ball joint mount aft moving the wheel forward which makes for light steering. We are running a package deal special on these right now which can be seen near the bottom of our home page www.dmcsidecars.com
