    That’s pretty close to what I had in mind. I have to commit to myself that I want to offload the R9T before I dive too deep into a hack. I really do love the UGS, and I’m weighing how much I’ll use either to be honest

    Selling a 2009 Suzuki S40 Boulevard (formerly known as the LS650 Savage) with less than 7,000 miles on it. Great shape. Added accessories include windshield, crash bars, Custom World rear rack, cheap saddlebags and nice support mounts, and recent new battery. Clean and clear title. Wife's bike and she doesn't ride it. The crash bars have lights on them but they are not hooked up. PM for more info. Located in Crestview. $2300 OBO.

    I feel the same dilemma regarding the R9t. The struggle is REAL! I’ve got F800GS fever and more cowbell is needed...

    took it for a spin this morning to meet up with @twowheeledgator and I’m torn now myself. However a hack with the Mrs on the back and the pooch on the tub would be a lot more fun on the weekends. I’ve got other bikes to social distance, or get out of this SICK SOCIETY

    A little advise if you are really considering a Sidecar rig.
    2 up on the bike with a dog in the car is not typiclay a good set up, unless your wife is super light and/or your dog is super heavy.
    You want weight in that car, not on the bike.

    If things are not too out of wack weight wise you might be able to compensate a bit by keeping extra ballast in the car (sand bags or some other weights)

    I’ve been doing some reading, and have chatted with a couple folks about it. I’ve got some good/similar advise from them too.
    I was told to put ballast in the car to simulate actual load, and solo then begin weighting, testing from there. Luckily I have enough land to crash all by myself here while potential passengers watch from a distance (laughing accordingly)

    Its not typiclay slow going that the sidecar bites you.
    Its with a bit of speed when the car lifts and it suddenly goes from being a direct steering rig (like an ATV) back to a counter steering motorcycle.
    Then instead of heading around the corner like you intended, it takes off in the opposite direction.

    This is not the ideal setup either.

    Resulted in cable being out for about 3 hours. :lol3 Fortunately the first black car was not there at the time of the "incident". The ladies came to rest against the Crape Myrtles.

    I’ve got one of those too I’m not riding..

    The guy that hooked mine up put a 100lb bag of sand in the car and said don’t take it out until you have a hundred miles on it. It’s still in there.

    Did they actually fly the car with 2 in it.....or was it just bad piloting all around?

    I ran mine with 4 like that before, though admittedly made sure to put the lightest on the bike with me.

    Owner said the rig had a tendency to pull left & told her so before they rolled away. Poor 92lber didn't have a chance of keeping it straight. The farther down the street she went the lefter it went. Probably wasn't doing 5 mph when the trees stopped it. They came spilling out like a barrel of monkeys all laughing their asses off. No damage done & the owner was laughing as hard as the rest of us. :rofl

    Selling some bits and bobs from my 2004 KLR 250. All parts are in shockingly good shape.

    OEM Rear Shock. << sold
    OEM Front Fender << sold
    OEM Front Springs.

    I'm in north Naples, happy to try to hook up at a reasonable place, given a trade-off between gas, time, and shipping.
