    Wow...I debated on whether to respond to this thread or not. Kinda embarrasing, as someone mentioned, but it is flattering at the same time. Embarrising in that it is not just me here at CSM who has the mindset described here. All of us are on the same page in a group effort to make a good product and to establish friends within the sidecar world that we all are in.

    Those at CSM, John, Bill, Krystal and Nick as well as Bob G, Angie, George, Dug and Dave are all very dedicated and comitted to the same goal. Our vendors who we use regularly are also on board in the same way. I am so so thankful to all who are invloved. The goal is to make the sidecar world a better place for those who are in it already and also to help others and newbies see what all the fun is about in a safe and sound fashion.If we can do this and keep the lights burning in this economy that is not a bad thing.

    In fact when you think about it there are only a few companies in this country who are doing sidecars as their main objective. I can say without hesitation that others such as Dave and RuthAnne Hannigan(Hannigan Motorsports), Bob Darden (Texas Sidecars), Mary Sontag (Motorvation engineering), Broc and Pete Smith at Side Effects, Pete Larsen at Liberty ,Doug Bingham and others have made their life around sidecars.
    Lots of dedication has went into these businesses with the goal of putting their customers first. It is you guys out there who help to keep all of us afloat. No one is getting rich doing this stuff in a monetary fashion but the payoff in smiles and friendships made is much more important than what money can buy.
    So, and I can speak for all above I think, I say thank you for the kind words. It is much appreciated.
