    I would love that on the road. Used one of those xs 650cc out to 720 in my motocross sidecar outfit over here in the UK after I was forced to change over from using Norton 920cc Commando engines because I couldn't keep a Norton gearbox together for more than one meeting..

    My first sidecar was XS650 based. Call me XS-sive, I've had four of them in various configurations, sidecar, street tracker, cafe racer, standard, quite a versatile history.

    Take a shower, Clancy.

    Nice thing. If the Tig wasn't so epic, I'd be after a GSX1400, yes, yes, yes.:clap

    Wouldn't we all?

    Is this what is known as 'original retro'?
    Very nice.
    Don't know how it would go out in the bush, though.

    Much difficulty in putting a lefty on the road in the USA?

    :lol3:lol3 Nothing wrong with yours Ray, nice outfit. I just wanted a new one and didn't want another K. Mine's been great but now I've ridden it for over two years, and ridden a few others, I know I can do something better.

    I'm ambidexterous! There is no requirement for right-sidecar that I'm aware of but an extremely near sighted monkey is best.:lol3

    NB 'Indicated'

    Is that over any specific cliff? Or just any cliff in general?

    So it took me 2 days to go through all of this thread ! I like to get ideas of what I want to do, and love/hate researching.:huh
    Have an '07 GSA and well... sometime I like to be a "little different":evil. Last time I rode an outfit was in '94... loved it of course...
    I'm a Brit in Canada so it's going to be a bit of a change with the chair on the "other" side :wink: but I adapt pretty easily.
    Some great looking "hacks", as you call them, and I am especially into the dual purpous type, Planning to get set-up in the "hope" that I can get some major touring under my belt in the near future.:norton
