We make it back ok to the motel , about 70 miles of the first day of being a sidecar pilot . I took it very slow and easy . It's a differant beast to say the least .

I do have to say that Wyler , Kate went WAY over the top make this a true unforgetable memory . Two brand new tires , oil filters , lines , brakes etc all new and the list goes on and on . I can't say enough about how nice this rig is set up for me and my wife . Good people and may the be blessed with the new bike to them coming to them from Michigan .

Great looking rig you have there. Sounds like you had a wonderful buying experience.

Have a safe trip back to MI and post lots of photos of your trip.

Went to pier 39 San Franciso today . Here's the Alratraz Island from the pier .




I couldn't resist




Otw back to motel they had this sign up , nice . I feel that the drivers here so far are alot better than the really bad ones we have in Grand Rapids , Mi . So I am happy .





Lots of waves and thumbs up too :)

Made it to Morro Bay , just beatifull place .




Well my ass gets sore and I wanted a Russell Day long saddle , but not gonna happen this trip sooo here's what I did .

I got a http://www.bedbathhome.com/323/as-se...n-cushion.html

Comfy Pillow from Walmart and used my cargo net I got from Aerostich to hold it in place . Then I put the Aerostich sheep skin pad over that to cover up the knots on the net . Works pretty good . No problems with height as the seat was a LOW anyway and I don't put my feet down .




Thought I wouild share this . This winter I will be getting a Russell though . Another one for my bucket list .














I want to add I am taking some of DaveBig's advice and whenever I start to get tired I quit riding for the day , so I hopefully don't make a mistake .

Best
spro

PS: Can't edit out the second Morro Bay pic out
