    i've heard a few reasons why...
    - won't "deal" with US regulations
    - their 2-wheel drive rigs cost more than $50,000.00 NOT including YOUR bike

    and, a few other things

    I am doing a fly and ride to get it next week. Only 1800 miles on the bike and 100 on the sidecar. Hope to put another 1500 miles on the way home. I see it getting a lot more use in the future.

    great picture above
    and i DO like the look of that sidecar
    but....
    don't you think it's a bit CLAUSTROPHOBIC in there?
    at least from the angle you are showing us
    i wonder if you have more pictures
    from the side
    from behind
    etc....

    again....
    i DO like it
    but, i wonder if that face stemmed from some claustrophobic sensations

    Thanks guys; Ummm, she's not a "badass" just annoyed that dad's always wanting to take her picture. And as far as Holister goes, wearing one on a bike kinda makes more sense to me than the mall....

    Thanks for all the compliments, but credit where it is due, Chris (bmweuro) is the man that put it together. Can't wait to see the next one ...

    Bruce is a cool hound, looks like a thug, but just a big doofus at heart.

    And Redmenace - you know this is all your fault, right?
