    To avoid hijacking this too much more with weather reports, here is my wife Kathy with our BMW R75/6 and Cozy sidecar near Padrone Canyon.<img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_s44vXDnPWFI/TWdM9ygzjLI/AAAAAAAAEmM/w_bafmvpgqw/s800/IMG_6040.JPG" height="534" width="800" />

    A photo of my rig. My husband and I rode it to the Chelan Sidecar Rally (Wa.) and have the tractor seat (Iron Butt Award 2010) displayed on the seat in this photo. If spring would ever come maybe we could get out and RIDE!!!

    Nice Rig! Who made your subframe(s)? Any shots from the rear?
    Looks like some sturdy fabrication.

    As requested a couple of other photos of the rear and subframe set-up for my 06 Goldwing. The car is a Champion sidecar & I assume the subframe is from them as well. We bought the bike already rigged out and have only changed the front suspension and raked triple tree. We run a car "mud & snow" tire on the back which has allowed for better milage and handling. (and as you see we still have LOTS of snow.) I normally don't ride it in the winter but my husband usually takes it for a quick spin as he says "nothing like drifting it in the snow!" I am too chicken to do that.
    Having trouble uploading photos-- if they don;t attach I will try later.

    Hello Greg,
    Motorvation did the paint. They do excellent color matching with great attention to detail and so forth on their sidecars. We had nothing to do with this particular outfit. I just thought is was very nice and wanted to share the picture..

    Hi Shortstuff, your subframe photos didn't get posted. I also would like to see them, to compare them to my rig. Thank you.
