Thanks for this post. I've been too busy to check back. This is where I got it and it is the S.drive model. Barry

So you don't have to put your foot down at the stop sign?

I put a similarly sized tire on the stock wheel of my K1200RS. Ordered it from tirerack.com. Has been working great so far. Very cool to see that it works on other bikes too!

If we turn the bike around, the sidecar will end up on the right hand side on this bike, we are adding reverse so all will be fine. The sidecar is being built for a quadrapegic person to be able to ride, it will have power steering as well as power brakes, a power ramp and full hand controls as he can move his arms but not his fingers. Shifting, turn signals and reverse will be controled with his wrists.
