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

    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

    This was my first venture out of the garage on 01-01-13 and I couldn't get up the driveway. Now with studded tires, no problem.

    The sidecar is a Cozy Rocket sidecar that I found locally on CL here in Fairbanks, AK, last October. The tug is my '83 BMW R100RT airhead. Mounting hardware and subframe from DMC. I'm still working out details such as lights and no sidecar brake and no steering mods.

    Hi Bob,

    Not getting too many miles in right now as I don't want to commute in the dark, on ice, in the fog, etc. until I get more experience in. So now, still stuck to weekends for now....

    I'm sure there's more than two. Just the others are all in Holland.
