well... i hope there are maps that tell of places like that...
because, could surely never pass one of those gates

as for the dismantling... not sure i have the ability to do so
it'll be ok, but i'm sure there will be some "limitations" as to where i can go on that "road less traveled"

one more thing...
because my desire to carry 2 small kids, side-by-side in that 4" wider sidecar exceeds my need to travel through narrow gates, by a WIDE margin, i'm thrilled that jay and barry at DMC decided to create the DX model.
my garage is all ready to park her... if she'd only she get here

well... you've got to have a garage around these parts...
to darn hot
and i'm only 2 blocks from the (salt) water
not too good on stuff, in the long run

i'm glad you said those nice things about JAY and BARRY
they were a pleasure to work with in MY eyes, as well
and i truly think they outdid themselves with our rigs

M72DX, X, D, C weight

Hello,

Sorry to drag up a thread from June, but I am looking into hacking my F650GS (2007 single).

My brother owned a 1984 Moto Guzzi California II with a Velorex sidecar. I rode it and loved it. I also worked on the carburetors a lot! I have a pic of me flying the empty chair in a 360 in a large parking lot. The only bad thing was it bogged on steep upgrades and in heavy headwinds (Wyoming especially) and that made it a bear on the freeway.

How suitable is the M72 for a 50hp F650? Empty weight with a spoked wheel would be a good starting point. I like the look of the M72 and would like a seat and trunk instead of playing enduro sidecar racer with the platform and handrail.

Thanks,
Scott

My demo bike last winter was an F650GS single with our M72D sidecar, it worked really well, Another inmate now owns it and has posted photo's on the site in several places.
For your bike not only do we make the sidecar but we also offer an independent brake pedal for the brake as well as a leading link front end.

We are taking orders for spring delivery.
Of course our steering modifications and car wheel set up works as these to not matter which side the sidecar is mounted on.

DMC Sidecar R1200GSA 2012 to 2013

Well I ordered a M72DX sidecar from DMC sidecars last Oct 2012 and now its July 2013 and I have asked to cancel the order as I think waiting 10 months is a bit crap :(
A pitty in a way I did want one to go on my then 2012 R1200GSA Triple Black (now sold) and I have a new 2013 R1200GSA 90th which when I bought that in march was going to fit the DMC sidecar on :( sadlly no reply of DMC and so 10 months on canceled order
I don't know how long you good folks in the USA wait for a DMC sidecar ? but in the good ole UK we can get one in 3 to 4 weeks from Squire watsonian sidecars I know 3 to 4 weeks that's to long to wait I want one yesterday :)
So good luck with anyone who bought a DMC rig ? sidecar :) I hope your enjoying yours
Slightly Annoyed Brit :(

Sorry to hear that. Timelines can vary for all sidecar manufacturers. We have never set a drop dead due date but have also never had a dissatisfied customer that I know of. I would,, personally, rather say a far out date and come in earlier with delivery than visa versa. Right now we are probably out around 4 months with our own sidecars.

Considering the very, very narrow market for sidecar rigs and likely the people that are skilled at doing the custom work, and the outside vendors that do the little stuff like powder coating (but you need it, and if a powder coater in area goes out of business and the low volume of powder coating likely DMC does they probably have no leverage . . . ). But, you likely know all that and sadly not many places to get a custom hack/rig.

But, like poker, you now have the ante, a few raises so you've got to ride it out. Besides, other than Claude and starting all over again . . . well! Besides, you will be ecstatic with the end product. It's very, very high quality! Think high-end car market.

I love mine . . . and, it drives very well!
