    Would love to hear good or not so good.

    Anything about the mounts, struts, racks or whatever.

    Shit ! I certainly don't own one but the expeditions a nice product and I'm certain they've applied everything they learned from previous experience to it !

    As you are just north of Seattle and we are just south, why not come by and see how they are built. This week we are mainly building our Tomahawk sidecars so we only have 6 in production of Expedition sidecars. They range from raw fiberglass waiting to be trimmed to one on an R1200GS waiting to be picked up and another finished in the crate waiting for payment before it is shipped. I would be happy to show you ever step of the process for building these sidecars.

    Go and take the tour, if for no other reason to see the welding table that has to have come from a battleship. It's massive.

    I had mine in the Alps- a mount broke and pierced the fuel tank, it careened in flames over the guard rail at 80+ mph, and caromed into a school bus full of orphans being driven by nuns, on their way to Lourdes, which burned to the ground in minutes.
    Unfortunately my passenger was then struck by the only Peterbilt pulling a hog trailer in the entire country of Switzerland and was terminally flattened (*), and the impact also killed our Pomeranian.
    Luckily I escaped with severe brain injuries which have not yet healed.
    Other than that, a great sidecar.

    *At the inquest the report said "suffered from an abrupt change in thickness".

    In my defence I must say that it was not my fault when the flaming bus after rolling down the mountainside flattened the guard shack at the nuclear power station, setting off all those alarms and causing the country's anti-terrorist mechanism to engage. None of those injured soldiers or dairy cattle had anything to do with the quality of the sidecar mounts.
