magoo66,

Couple questions on the sidecar. First what is the vertical pipe that is about even with the sidecar windshield for? Maybe a hand hold for some one or camera mount? Second is, maybe just the camera angle but, the sidecar tire looks a bit on the large size for a small sidecar.
The pipe I did in fact add as a handhold.Always a tendency for passengers to grab the windshield before. The wheel is what was on it. I agree with you on seemingly a bit to large but fearful of altering until I get a bit more savey of the overall Sidecar experience first.

I want to thank Ray Brown (aka @BlackRabbit18) and friends for showing me a fantastic time yesterday. It would have been tough to pull it off without them. We had a ride up Angeles Crest yesterday.

My photos are pretty lousy. The ride was amazing. I moved the chicken strips on Ashley’s bike. She rented me the bike through RiderShare. Now, off to LAX.

Great views and a great ride I trust.

Well the air was warm today.

Shaded country roads? Not so much.

A little cabin just a few miles from the ranch.

Was nice to be out on two wheels for a while.
Yeah, going now to spend two hours cleaning salt off Madness.
We also hiked a bit today.

Eked out a Christmas eve ride.

Uly fired right up when the Beemer wouldn't (battery's elderly, parasitic drain)
Mebby 15 miles @ 50F It's running good.
Madness has the back brake apart, and after several hours cleaning and polishing didn't want to get it wet n dirty again.
