Looking for a Ride in NE Ohio

I've wanted a sidecar for decades so I can take my dogs with me when I ride my motorcycle. I hate leaving them at home when I ride, and they love going for car rides.

I'm finally able to do something about getting a sidecar.  Thing is, I've never even ridden in one.  I should probably do that before getting one of my own.

A short ride would be fine, just enough to get a feel for it.  I don't care what route or where.

I'm in Willowick, Ohio, about 15 miles northeast of downtown Cleveland.  I'm happy to travel a bit to meet for a ride, even as far as Columbus or a similar distance in another direction.  Good excuse for a motorcycle ride, like I need one 🙂

Anyone like to take a potential convert for a ride?

Thanks,

Doug

I live in Dayton so a little far from you - I'm sure there are folk closer that would be more than happy to give you a ride - Maybe even your dogs too😊

Excellent suggestion.  I just posted my request on advrider.  Thanks!

There is a sidecar gathering sept 15-19 at Amish Country Campsites on Rt62 in Winesburg Oh.

Someone will be willing to give you a ride. Plus there will be different rigs to look at.

I will be there thur - sun i won't have mine there as i'm still recovering from open heart.

Sorry to be so long in replying.

Someone from ADV Rider gave me a ride Friday.  It was a hoot!  Better yet, he let me drive his rig around the parking lot of one of the Metroparks.  Yep, it's time for me to get one.

The gathering sounds like fun.  At this point, I'm planning on stopping by for at least a little bit depending on my work schedule and the weather.

My rig may comment:

Welcome in this a bit offset community. Dogs love it, and sometimes mother's in law too. (mine rode until 91 in the tub)

Thanks, Fly.

I'm hoping to go on Friday, but I have to play it by ear for now.

I sent you a PM with my contact information.
