You're one of the causes of this sudden influx of 1400s Andrew We're all just copying you.

Just great.

I would love that on the road. Used one of those xs 650cc out to 720 in my motocross sidecar outfit over here in the UK after I was forced to change over from using Norton 920cc Commando engines because I couldn't keep a Norton gearbox together for more than one meeting..

XS-sive

My first sidecar was XS650 based. Call me XS-sive, I've had four of them in various configurations, sidecar, street tracker, cafe racer, standard, quite a versatile history.

Nice thing. If the Tig wasn't so epic, I'd be after a GSX1400, yes, yes, yes.

Wouldn't we all?

Don't know how it would go out in the bush, though.

Much difficulty in putting a lefty on the road in the USA?

Nothing wrong with yours Ray, nice outfit. I just wanted a new one and didn't want another K. Mine's been great but now I've ridden it for over two years, and ridden a few others, I know I can do something better.

I'm ambidexterous! There is no requirement for right-sidecar that I'm aware of but an extremely near sighted monkey is best.
