Cool !
Nice to see you weren't wasting your time over there.
One question though, why is the hack on the right side, do they drive Brit style there ?

i've heard a few reasons why...
- won't "deal" with US regulations
- their 2-wheel drive rigs cost more than $50,000.00 NOT including YOUR bike

and, a few other things

I am doing a fly and ride to get it next week. Only 1800 miles on the bike and 100 on the sidecar. Hope to put another 1500 miles on the way home. I see it getting a lot more use in the future.
