belated hello - Guest - 01-30-2010

Hi all. I been lurking around here for a year and never posted. 'Bout time I introduced myself. I'm Kevin, ride a 84 standard with sidecar attached. Needs a starter (I had to push start it most of last year) and some paint but its a great runner and not quite the old Buick it appears to be.

Hello and welcome. So give us an idea of what it's like to pull around a sidecar next to a naked 1200. :?:

Re: belated hello - Guest - 02-02-2010

My dad bought this bike and sidecar brand new. He hasn't ridden much lately so I talked him out of it. I was riding it more than he was anyway. He has a volkswagen trike. It will stay in the family for as long as I can keep her running. Both my kids have eyes on it.

It was a big bike back in 84. But I parked next to a Valk last summer and it looked puny even with the sidecar. Just the right size for me, plenty of oomph. I can't see needing 1800 cc.
