Having an opinion that is not mainstream for this forum somehow makes me unworthy of posting? If we all were to think alike and want the same thing, life would be terribly boring. Just saying...

I'll shut up now (to no longer upset the status quo) and continue lurking around here and drooling, as well as judging, in the peaceful atmosphere of my home office.

Hope to see more interesting rig builds.

I will have to throw a couple of pairs of gloves in the mix trying to keep my hands warm in the winter.

Just subscribed to this thread.

Drone pointed it out to me. I now have 11 threads on ADV that I'm subscribed to; three are hack oriented. Good thing I'm retired, or I'd get fired for drooling on the company's keyboard looking at all these beautiful mechanical things on three wheels. Time for a nap!

Bought the GS/Hannigan rig gently used for $18k. Added Krista lights, Stebel horn, Jesse bags and a GPS called Captain Bligh. Took out the seat and installed a memory foam dog bed. Put a set of Rotopax gas and water cans mounted to the bulkhead. Added a tonneau cover with a zippered hatch that lets Barley find shade or fresh air as he prefers.



It's a nice rig for local rides, but excels at long trips like our 5200 mile adventure around the Great Lakes this summer. Barley and I check out some pretty wild places!


And we really enjoy our time together!

'76 Guzzi Convert = Free, had to put back together.

Sidecar build;
20ft 1 1/4 sq. tube 11ga =$20
Trailer axle stub = $18
2- 3 point top links =$21 each

Hours to this point to build =Unknown but priceless

Enjoyment riding = Undescribable
