    Hope she had a better time than her face would suggest...

    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?

    I think the look on Shannon's face is just because she would rather be driving the thing THAN RIDING IN IT. LOL

    Claude,

    On Sadie's rig - Why are the panniers mounted so high? Was it to allow the stock exhaust to clear the bags? Do you have an pics of the rear of the rig?

    'Yes to clear the exhaust. Can be done differently of course. There is also a box that goes between the panniers not shown.
