Hard to really tell what I have into my rig.

I started in '98 with a 97 Ural Tourist and I paid (I think) $4,500 for it. Rode it for three years.

Bought a 'R100R for about $5,000 ( think) in 2001. Put the sidecar from the Ural on it; traded the Ural motorcycle for the subframe and mounting. After a year or so, I had Dauntless put a Unit lead link on the rig, which i think was about $1500 or. Had it ever since. So I think I have about $11,000 in it. There were some repairs to the bike, but they would have happened whether it had a hack or not.

When you divide the cost by 13+ years and all the miles and my daughters growing up in the rig and now driving it themselves, it worth every penny and then some
