I understand, Dana. And I agree it would be hard to retrofit one without losing ground clearance.

My GS rig is like my Ural it is akin to putting makeup and a prom dress on a pig, it may look pretty but in the end it is still a pig.

Now that nice HP rig is another story.....
LOL.... Dana gotta admit you made me laugh out loud with that post. The cool thing is that you have put a lot of miles on your outfit and a lot of smiles were made along the way. THAT is what sidecars are all about.

Good picture that I haven't see in quite a while Dana. Brings back alot of memories of a lot of great folks. Jim Dodson is missed but is in a better place. Hack'd Magazine is surely missed although Chris and Gary are doing well now.They were married this year. .

Gary was at the shop here this summer. He did pickup duties with his sidecar outfit on the cannonball run again.
