Several months ago I ran across what I thought was a good buy on a Hannigan chair. Boss monkey and I hopped in the truck on a Friday and drove from VA to MI and were back on Sunday afternoon. It sat in my shop for a couple of days while I ran over the options in my head. This is a big chair but one of the knocks on it was the windshield wraps around all way around and limits the fresh air. I decided to remedy this with some zip down removable side curtains. Now for the mule option. The only solo bike I had at this point was an 08 BMW K12GT. First I realized this was not going to be good option because of size of car and possible mounting locations on bike. This coupled with the realization while on my 8 day 3700mi trip this summer, I really missed my rig and my long distance solo days are coming to an end, so I started looking for another mule. In November I ran across a 99 BMW K12LT with only 4300mi on the clock. This bike had been sitting in a climate controlled garage for 17yrs. Now at the dealership where I purchased the GT a trade was agreed on and home it came. The first thing I did was remove the large tour trunk that had all the entertainment controls for passenger since I have no plan to carry a passenger on bike. I replaced this with a smaller givi trunk that I mounted a auxiliary fuel cell in. Next were new Spiegler brake lines. Since I have Bluetooth helmet I removed all the outdated sound system, cd changer, cassette deck and communication. I currently have rear wheel and adapter, steering mod, heavy front shock spring, and subframe/mounts on order from Claude at Freedom Sidecars, so the process begins.... The car body is now at paint shop! Will post updates.
