    There are only three things to remember before any motorcycle trip...
    "Is my hair cool?"
    "Is my bike cool?"
    "Do I have gas?"

    Normally, the only thing I worry about is the last one. "Got gas? Yep, let's keep riding...."

    Oh sweet!! I'll be riding up the third week of May, around the 13th or 14th, to have them put on the sidecar to my black/yellow '03 1150GSA. :freaky I'm super excited to try it out, and my rig is also for the "furbutt" although I haven't yet started her training. :thumb

    I'm a bit boring and will be trailering it home so I can learn how to ride sidecars the not-so-hard way. :rofl I envy your upcoming adventure and hope we'll see each other up in Enumclaw next month! :clap

    Dropped by DMC last week and managed to sneak a few pics of Moosey's rig. Well, it's not a rig yet . . . .

    Forks gone while new steering head bearings are mated up.

    Subframe pretty much finished.

    Just a plain old chassis, but it's Moosey's! The tub was at the paint shop and the swingarm and wheel were not fitted yet.

    Deadline is next week! But when that tub comes back from the painter, things start happening real fast. I'm planning to go back on delivery day to get some more pics.

    Moosey, I can't wait to hear how well that Tiger works out as a tug. I have been watching a couple in the Fleamarket and they are really appealing to me. Jay once told me that one of the most fun hacks he ever had was a Tiger based one. So waiting to see what your opinion will be.
