    Just to prove the relative safety of long distance motorcycle travel, I took a 3000 mile trip on two bikes I’d never touched before said trip (1500 per bike ;) ) with zero injuries of any kind, and then, within 24 hours of completion I “traumatically amputated” (as per the ER paperwork) the end of my thumb...closing a door.

    I don't know if I'm allowed to post CL links here, and I've nothing to do with the sale, but I just saw on CL that the Bakery Quest rig is up for sale. We sold it to a nice couple a couple/few years ago - they were getting out of moto touring because of health issues and wanted try sidecars to see if that worked. From the ad copy, I guess not :(

    Anyway, if you want to own a piece of history, a quick search of Portland's cl listing for hanningan sidecar will point you in the right direction.

    PS: Those guys here on the hacks subforum saw the ad last week, but NO ONE TOLD ME!!! ...lazy old retired guys...sheesh ;)

    Seeing the listing earlier did remind me of your text from a couple of days ago...

    Sorry to hear about your thumb.

    Here is mine. 5 weeks since the hand surgeon put it back together. Table saw.

    Thanks - it was about 18 months ago and is mostly back to normal now. Well, it’s shorter, the nail is a bit odd, and there is some nerve damage at the tip and in a few other parts of my hand...but it could be worse!

    I saw your pic the other day on that other forum - looks unfun! Thursday Jeremiah and I spent many hours turning eight hundred pounds of lumber into the components of a shelving system - I was thinking about you while I was running the chop saw. ‘
