Fetching "The Worthless Furbutt's" Chariot

One way ticket from MSP to SEA the second week of May: Check

2005 Triumph Tiger shipped to Jay at DMC in Sept. 2012:



Check

Read the yellow book on piloting a sidecar rig: Check

A 1 year old standard poodle (AKA "The Worthless Furbutt")in training to be a monkey:



Check

Any inmates between Enumclaw, WA and NW Wisconsin hide your children, pets and old folks because I will be hurtling toward the rising sun across the northern Rockies and Great Plains the second week of May! Canadian inmates may be threatened if I should make an erroneous left turn anywhere along the route...

My decision-making skills may be somewhat suspect as I could have had it shipped to me for 3 times less the cost of my fly and ride.

And miss the hapless tale of a 60 year old woman sidecar noobist on a 1700 mile training ride?...not a chance!

I'll keep you all posted.

Now, hold my beer and watch this!

Has all the ingredients of a carefully thought out and sound plan to me. Hope you have a great ride and that the mossies aren't biting yet. My little brother in the UP(Michigan) just reported 8 inches of snow so I don't know what kind of spring you have ordered-pleasant one hopefully.

It's snowing today and will snow tomorrow...

Ice is still on the lakes...

Ticks are out, but no mozzies.

I'm hoping that by May things will be little better.

Congrats!

Sounds not unlike my cherry-breaking ride. Bought a rig in Phoenix and rode it 1500 miles back to Tacoma--my first time driving a hack! (Other than the sidecar class I took from Red Menace.)

If you want me to go over to DMC and take some build pics for ya, just say the word! I'm about 30 minutes away.

Best of luck to you on your trip. I hope you budgeted plenty of time for your trip so you can enjoy it and not make it a mad dash home. We also did a fly and ride to SEA. It's a beautiful area to enjoy. The trip planning forum here can be of great help to you. Please post a link here if you do a ride report. We all love living vicariously on other's 3 wheeled adventures.

Have fun.

Your decision skills are fine ... it's only money and it can not buy the story you are about to embark on.

I agree 100%. We buy them to ride, not to trailer them. People that do that should save their money and just buy a poster.

Sounds like a good plan.

If you can survive up in Spooner you can thrive on any road in North America, the skills are latent and just waiting to be excercised, buena suerta Senora.

Awesome! MrsDonkeys did a fly-and-ride for her first hack too!

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=712376

Little did I know that it would spawn another hack enthusiast....ME!

Good luck with the trip. We'll be watching for the ride report.
