I'm a bit boring and will be trailering it home so I can learn how to ride sidecars the not-so-hard way. I envy your upcoming adventure and hope we'll see each other up in Enumclaw next month!
NIIICE!

I'll let you know after I get back whether or not "boring" may have been a better choice...

Yeah, I saw that about 27 min. after I made my plane reservation.

With Spring coming so late, fire season is.extending into May, so I will need to return sooner than later...

Dropped by DMC last week and managed to sneak a few pics of Moosey's rig. Well, it's not a rig yet . . . .




Forks gone while new steering head bearings are mated up.





Subframe pretty much finished.




Just a plain old chassis, but it's Moosey's! The tub was at the paint shop and the swingarm and wheel were not fitted yet.

Deadline is next week! But when that tub comes back from the painter, things start happening real fast. I'm planning to go back on delivery day to get some more pics.

Moosey, I can't wait to hear how well that Tiger works out as a tug. I have been watching a couple in the Fleamarket and they are really appealing to me. Jay once told me that one of the most fun hacks he ever had was a Tiger based one. So waiting to see what your opinion will be.

We do have one more sub frame like the one in the photo ready to go should you pick up a Tiger.

DRONE seriously whupped my ass into shape today!!

I can't thank him enough! Our first stop, my legs nearly collapsed. Who knew piloting a rig could be so exhausting??

First paved twisties then we headed for the snow line on a gravel forest road.





Thanks Jay for having having it perfectly set up.

One last poser shot...

That looks fun!!

So, one newb to another: how do you like the sidecar? I'm excited to get mine this week but worried that for whatever reason I'll hate it!
