    NY is a bit far for me, for some reason I thought you were in MN or WI. It sure is a nice looking rig. If you were closer I'd come look at it, and start the negotiating process with the wife...... I guess I'll be satisfied with my Honda/Champion rig for a while.

    Well my rig left yesterday to go to its new home
    in Virginia so if anyone sees it flying around be sure to say hello to Dave
    very nice guy
    i didnt think i would ever see it drive away with someone els driving it and i kinda felt bad to see it go
    but dave just called me and boy did he sound happy so i guess it was all worth it

    Hey, congrats! :clap

    And at the same time -- Sorry, Zipper! :cry

    Make sure the new guy knows about ADV so he can post up some ride reports. Title--"The Continuing Adventures of Zipper's Winter Build."

    Also sorry it had to leave home but glad someone has it and hope they enjoy it. With some luck we will be seeing a new thread for "Winter Build #2" soon.

    Zipper, I'm sorry to hear you had to sell the rig, but glad to hear you found a new owner who can appreciate all of your work!

    Here's a photo of June after her first ride (she liked it) and one of the rig at Morton's BMW in Fredericksburg, VA with it's new proud owner. The photo at Morton's was taken today and there was a lot of interest and questions. Told anyone who asked about Zipper on Adventure Rider and recommended they take a look at his build. Met a young couple on a GSA side car rig who knew Claude and had nothing but kind words to say about him. You're welcome to post these photos any where you like - if you want.
    I'm headed to Michigan next Wednesday on my GSA and then down to Rib Fest near Nashville. June's really good about letting me go on my own.
    Hope all goes well,
    Dave

    i just received this today

    I know that we all hate to see our babies go, but at least they seem to be happy to have it.
