    I had the pleasure of riding with Charlie and the dogs on those forest service road. You did good Claude. The rig is even more awesome in person.

    Charlie has done some dual sport rides with his doggie rig with top removed (it is a bolt on hardtop). I may join him this year here in Pa. if time permits.

    I pull a fiberglass motorcycle trailer. It is primarily filled with camping gear. If we're not camping out we have more than enough cargo capacity between our two rigs even if we have the dogs. I can't post pictures but i'll send some to Claude and see what he can do.
    For dual sport rides somewhat suitable for sidecars check the AMA Adventure Series. Mill Hall, PA is coming up June 2nd. They have some single track but with some creative GPS work you can find your way around it.

    Thanks for bringing this thread back to life. Charlie, Gabe and I really enjoyed meeting you last summer in CDA. We were in the yellow and green Vstrom.
    Holler when you are ready for that saddle mod and I'll hook you up with Dave Fisher.
