    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.

    Sorry I have not been able to upload the photos. I will try to take new ones with a different camera or use a different computer tomorrow.
    Wingincamera- we met at Chelan last year I think. We were the couple that did the video recording for you. We hope to get there again this year but will depend on weather. We currently still have 3 feet of snow and are fervently hoping spring will arrive soon!

    I feel for you. We had a little snow and rain this winter, but seeing what the rest of the country had to deal with we can only count our blessings. I bet snow shovels are in short supply. We do remember you and your great taste in bikes and sidecars :D
    Hope to see you again in Chelan.
