    You may have noticed that Bailey, the pup in front, is not wearing Doggles whilst Roscoe, in the back, is.

    Early on she simply refused to wear the dog goggles and would rake them off with her paw. However, she does get behind the windscreen at speed. Roscoe likes his head in the wind and doesn't mind the Doggles.

    Looks Great !!! Glad to see your putting the chair to good use. I put a few miles on it while it was attached to the previous tug. In the interest of safety that chair could use some ballast added to it. Especially since you have it on a bigger bike.

    I like it. To me, one of the joys of the sidecar world is the thinking that goes into custom rigs. I love seeing something different and figure out how it all works together.

    No idea. But I sure would like to poke around and ask the owner a few questions. There is more experimentation in the world of hacks than just about any other facet of motorcycling. Some are epic failures, but I admire those who push the envelope!

    1,000's of bikes at the 1st December 2012 Toy Run in Perth, Western Australia but I only saw about five rigs ....
