the Honda ST1100 makes an excellent mount for sidecar use. mine has a Hannigan Sprint and has been in use for 5 years without issue. i routinely carry a passenger in the hack and on the passenger seat.

the only changes you would want to make are either replace the stock narrow bars for something with more leverage or do what i did and have the steerite modification done to the triple clamps.

The hack is fun to ride, but I can see doing gravel even on a street machine,

and if it's any tougher than gravel, I really like my KTM a lot better.


The girlfriend and I took the hack down to her aunts house on friday -

Jeez louise is it ever easier to drive with a monkey in the hack!

My last sidecar class for the season is this weekend. After that I should be able to do some riding for fun. You ought to come up and hop in my sidecar, let me show you how much fun "tougher than gravel" can be with a sidecar!

I want to, but I don't have the dough.
Lame excuse, I know.

I'm feeling pretty good driving it on roads. Still wears me out mentally/physically MUCH faster than riding a bike (even though I'm going MUCH slower), but I don't hold up regular traffic... And it is nice to have that third wheel when you pull into the campground and realize that the "road" is made of sand... But the KTM is more of a kick in the pants (for me) off-road.

You misunderstand- I was suggesting you come up later this fall and we'd go play.
But pm me offlist if you do want to do the class, I can cut you a deal on this one.

No,no, Tony. You misunderstand! I was suggesting we take one of my KLRs out to play, not the overpriced, overweight, defective German bikes.....
