    Yes. Looked at it several weeks ago, decided to skip. Changed my mind a few days later. Not many EML or EZS rigs come up for sale with the right tug. So far, I'm still in the honeymoon phase.

    Congratulations, I've always liked that bike, even more now. You two have got really good looking, reliable bikes.

    Dependability is paramount, I like working on them, just not before every ride.:D

    Probably not the right place to say this [should be in 'for sale' maybe ], but bobsbmw has a 2009 candy-red ST1300 + EML 2001GT for sale. No affiliation.

    I only have about 150 miles on it so far but handling is fine. The steering is heavy as you might have guessed but not enough to make me want to change anything. Some had concerns that the car would be too light but with the DMC mounts, the track is pretty wide which may compensate some. With 50 lbs of ballast in the trunk, I can't lift the sidecar wheel at all by yanking on the bars while standing on the left peg. No extra steering stabilizer has been added beyond the stock adjustable one. I'm still learning so I haven't gone above 45 mph. The screw in studs add another variable to the ice and snow covered roads. With snow and ice on our large parking lots, I would start sliding before the sidecar wheel lifts on circles to the right. This was before I added the screw in studs and I haven't tried it since. I'm having fun!

    The sidecar frame was beefed up a bit with a new tubular cross member to fit with the rear DMC mounting hardware and the front solid steel shaft was modified to work with their mounting hardware. None of the Cozy universal mounting parts and pieces were used.

    any cliff in general, though, given my local geography, she goes faster north and south, than west and west.
    I added three teeth to the back sprocket, and took one from the front. It helps a lot when I have three passengers.

    Ural tub, Lowell Neff subframe, dual brake pedals (rear/hack) and a unit leading link - otherwise pretty much the same, eh? :webers

    What am I going to read before bed now?? For the past 3 1/2 weeks this thread has been my bed time story and I have to say a big thankyou to every body who has contributed to it.

    Here is a pic of my son and I on a mates Outfit. I never really had an interest in Sidecars but after riding this one I have started building my own!!
