OK, that's a pretty nice set-up. Hope you try to keep it somewhat authentic as you bring it back.

What color paint is that?

Cool2 Sorry for the delay in posting

Well the rig is a bike that sat for a bit in Florida where it got its beautiful tan color from a previous owner when a shovel damaged its original black color. The bike was in storage for a long time after that due to my father owning it and then storing it and never finishing it due to a lost battle with cancer. Then I come in to hopefully some day restore her to a beautiful turf green sidecar someday. Now that dog, well she is a total other issue. I rescue bulldogs like I rescue old bikes then have a hard time getting rid of them once they become family. Her name is Havana and the smallest of the crew but is a fireball to say the least and never says no to any adventure. Again kind people of Adventure Rider, I'm sorry it took 2 years to post but I am one of those people that is a little shy and just needs to warm up before opening up......but once I do, watch out(kind of like my old airheads). Nice to get the first out of the way and many more to come. Any tips on the best way way to go from Colorado to Alaska? Thanks and more pictures to come.

I agree, and that is always a debate....fix just whats needed or do it all. Right now it's bit by bit. Cause in her present shape she is just a towne, run here and there for those gingerly strolls and the ocassional visit to the breweries around lovely Northern Colorado. Thanks for the props though

A bunch of guys and girls from the largerst motorcycle Forum here in the Netherlands had a rideout on Sunday to sponsor research and aid to kids with cancer ( KIKA ).

Started as a small topic but in the end just under 1500 motorcyclists attended despite the bad weatherforecast which resulted in over 13.500

There were hunderds of pics taken and behold, even the old compressor with the icecreamstand at the side was photographed



Other hacks included:









and this one, with a handicaped-parking sticker:

Here you go:






Where were you ? I didn't believe your story for one moment

Halflive posted he was afraid the rain would stain the chrome on his bike and sidecar and that he'd have to spend all Sunday washing and polishing it
