Dozer,

Why in the world would I take a perfectly useless vehicle like a GS and make it even more worthless??

I love my dog, wife and daughter and I like to take them along (not in that order, of course). And I miss them when I'm Adv-ing. I have a lot of respect for the Creekster, too. Buuuut, ... a sidecar seems like the most counter-productive thing you could do to a motorcycle! Can't lean. It's gotta handle real strange. Can't singletrack. May as well get an old jeep or something.

Drove by Knolls today and there was maybe 1/2" of snow, some of it was new from this morning. A few days and the area should be mostly free of snow if we get some solar on it.

The desert is pretty free of snow from about 15 miles west of Grantsville to near Knolls, then west of Knolls towards Wendover it looks like this.

I think the sidecar would be fun a few times a year.

Also, the sidecar would be helpful in the winter when it is slick. As in it would save you from having your front/rear tire slide out from underneath you.

Popular on the Haul Road to Prudhoe Bay when it can get so slick.

When you're a passenger you can't stop laughing. When you're
the driver flying the hack is very fun. Like a sideways wheelie.

Not for everyone, but can be very interesting to play with.

A couple of the Ural models have the Hack wheel drive.

If you look around some it's pretty amazing where people take
these things. I would like the Tourist model, just for shits and giggles.
