It started last October when I drove from VA to MI on a weekend to purchase a Hannigan Astro that I thought was a good buy. At the time the only solo bike I had was a BMW 08 K12GT. After some figuring and investigation I realized this was not going to be a good tug for such a big chair. While on my 8 day 3700mi trip last summer I realized I missed my rig and my long distance two wheel touring may be coming to a close. About a month later I ran across a 99 BMW K12LT with only 4200mi. I was able to make a trade for my GT and the build began. I set about sourcing mounts. steering mods, tires etc. Had the chair painted to match the bike. I just finished and put it on the road Friday!

Good looking rig you got there. Nice work putting it all together.

Bring it to the USCA rally in Corning NY, last weekend in July.

Stripes. Such a personal thing. You paint the sidecar to match the bike, then you step back, and you say"Well, it's nice, but it's a little plain. IT NEEDS SOME STRIPES!" Then comes the hard part. What kind of stripes? How many colors? Straight or wavy? And where exactly? I think I've spent more time obsessing about stripes than any other farkle. LOL

Anyways, Bill, I like the stripes. Came out great.

Thanks, somehow I thought it needed something. They do line up at the correct angle! I put full stripes on my other rig.
