This is Lola. She's going 10 years old.
No training needed for the sidecar. Told her to hop in on the first day I had it, and we've been riding around ever since. She does pretty well off-road too.

Well, you really know how to make a guy cry

I've had four Springers. Now have Boykin spaniels. Love all of them. To watch that video is to know just how much we are tied into our dogs. I miss every one of my dogs that have died and can't wait to get one of my Boykins to ride with me once I get my hack running right. Thanks for putting this up. Take car and ride safe.

They gave him two weeks tops before the pain would be too bad for medicine. My Ural was having motor problems, but I said he was getting one last ride even if it destoryed the motor. He deserved one last ride. My boys came over on their mopeds and set up a camera some we could have some memories of the thing he enjoyed. This was his next to the last ride. The final one was his last trip to the vet. Rest in Peace Jerry

1982 GS1100G and Gus

Gus is a very quiet dog. He almost never barks except when he thinks we are going too slow.
Then he gives a series of short, fairly high pitched barks until we are travelling at a respectable dog approved speed. The fact I might be negotiating a rough, rocky creek crossing doesn't quite compute in his doggy brain.

So what is it? I'm intrigued by your sidecar and really want to know what it is.

It's a premier chassis with a body built by an aircraft engineer in his garage. He built it for his 80 y.o. Dad who road it for a few years and 20 000k's before I got it. I bought it on Ebay and despite the fact that I couldn't ride it, loved it. It had a few issues, including uncontrollable head rattle and a preference to veer to the right, ALL the time, so I was riding it leaning hard on right grip.

I then had the great fortune to meet Dr Phill Duffy - he operated on it during our first meeting, and it was a new machine. Now I REALLY love it!

Dusty will go as a nurse this year, as we drive about an look over the hobgoblins in our neighborhood. Not sure what Murph will wear though. Dusty ain't quite Nurse Ratchet from One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest, but she comes close. :-)

Well, Murph found his costume. He got a new sidecar today and wants to show it off. Hope he has his hack pilot's license... :-)

My black Lab Bill rides in my sidecar often, and we want to do some more serious touring (we are in Australia). Anyone got any thoughts about how he will go in the sun?

Awesome. Thanks for the info. That is a beautiful rig, and looks comfortable too. Although, now I'm a little sad knowing that there isn't some dude turning these out of a custom shop somewhere.

He leans with the turns!

I'd like to know what kind of harness attachments to car you're using, Mr. Ara (2 point, 4 point, etc.), as well as whether the sidecar seat is in, or is Spirit sitting on the car floor?

Added a new articulating arm to my aluminum bar mount for the GoPro camera. I added a second Super Clamp today and plan on using it to rig up a monopod for overhead shots. Not sure when I'll get to test that one out though.
