I must have missed the offer sent to me because I would have snapped it up.

Seriously, what happened to the body?

Looks like fun. You're not too far from me. We were supposed to have the rig in the Grapevine, TX parade last night but work reared up and bit us. My wife even got some new battery powered Christmas LEDs to put on so I wouldn't have to run the inverter with the 120v lights like we have before. Guess there's always next year to try them out.

The KTM outfit is exceptional from an appearance point of view.
As there appear to be a few KTM rigs around now, any chance someone could provide some information of how they perform, reliability, longer term experiences, etc. ? Maybe a specific, new thread ?

Cool, we also did the Greenville, Tx parade tonite. It was a pretty big/long parade, figured we better because we live here and are involved in some community stuff. Great weather for a parade. Gonna change come Sunday. Hope it mellows out by the week of Christmas, planning on going to Big Bend NP for a week. Merry Christmas.

My first hack...

but not my last. My bride and riding partner was reluctant to ride in it loves it and not only OKed the "adventure" hack but said "we are buying materials to build it"







My grandson "Hooper" and I, one of the the many reasons I kept searching for a hack.
