    This is a great back road cursing setup. Moves along 55mph great. At that speed you can take your hands off the bars and it will go nice and straight. The only handling quirk I never worked out is at about 10-15 mph you will want both hands on the bars. It shakes a bit but only noticed if you take one hand off to do something like turn the enricher off or turn the fuel on that you forgot about.

    Are you looking for swaps? I have a nice, low-miles Super Tenere...

    That looks like the perfect solution to finding a dog walker when I want to go ride after work.

    The seat in the sidecar come out easily. Would be really easy to put a blanket or something down for your dog.

    If someone is interested, sell it as fast as you can, but if it is still around in a few weeks I’ll ride over (from Minneapolis) and take a peak at it! There are a few more impractical bikes I’m after too, but a sidecar would be something completely new to me
