My New R1150GSA Hack

After riding my 1968 R60/2 Hack for over 15yrs, thought it would be fun to also build a GS hack........so I found a 2004 GSA near me last Spring and In June, added a Hannigan Dualsport, with electric camber control, a swaybar, disc brake and a bumper.

As you can see, the attachment is very sanitary and solid as a rock. The height of the bike has not been a problem........the swaybar is a key factor. No EZ steer is required, and the car can be removed in about a 1/2 hr with 4 bolts, the quick release swaybar, one electrical connector, and a quick release hydraulic line. Takes less than one hr to reattach the car.

The rig is stable at all speeds.....and stops straight due to the fact the brakes on all three wheels pull with the front brake. I use the back brake to set up right hand turns if i am a little too hot.

Dave Keese of Hannigan did a great job putting the rig together, their first R1150GSA....so took some special fabricating........, but a job well done.

Dave has been able to sort out a couple of minor issues without problem. A great guy.

Have put over 4000 miles on the rig to date and I could not be happier.

Hope the pics come thru.

VERY NICE RIG!!
Agree 100% 0n the swaybar, especially and specifically with a dual sport type rig. We will not build one without a swaybar and I think Dave K told me Hannigan will not either.
We recently did a new Hannigan Dual Sport / V Strom project in the shop which was a fun build. It was the first combination with a V Strom that Hannigan had suppied a sidecar for.
And yes, Dave Keesge is , as you alluded to, top shelf.

The following picture is of a new Hannigan Dual Sport we recently mounted to a V Strom. It shows the Hannigan swaybar. See notes on picture.
