New Gen 3 Dream sidecar by Hannigan

Rode my '19 Wing w/DCT out to Murray, Kentucky to have Hannigan sidecars install a new Gen 3 Dream sidecar, that I had ordered in May. 

Spent 5 days there , whilst the gang at Hannigan did the complete installation.

Left there Saturday morning, driving the new rig back to Washington State.

590 miles yesterday.

678 miles today.

Will be 585 miles tomorrow.

And finally 535 miles on Tuesday...then I will be home.

Is that a wide front tire. They also did a nice job on making the back half matching it to the Honda.  Good luck with it, nice looking rig.

Very Beautiful, I love the way they look together. You say you are from Washington? Are you on the East side or West side? I am on the East Side but used to live on the West side.

Fine looking rig!! I sure hope to read the story of your trip in the Sidecarist. Also, like Dennis said, where in WA are you. Perhaps either of you would consider being the WA rep? It's good duty. I was for a number of years but having some health issues currently that seem to be reducing my activity. I know Dave (NW rep) and Billie (ID rep) are both facing some health issues as well. I'm younger than either of them. Sure would be good to get some new motivated people. Sorry, I didn't mean to hijack your post.

Gray?  GRAY?? Is that the only color they had?

Next time I see you I'm guessing this will be your new hairstyle?

 

You're stylin' now!

Yes, the entire front end is Super Wide. They moved my original front tire over to the sidecar, then installed a Super WIDE hassock front end, with new WIDE front fender, etc...and a 180/65-16 Michelin Commander lll tire. The new front end has had the trail reduced, so it steers much easier.

I had installed a new Bridgestone BT-46...140/70-18 tire onto my original front wheel, before leaving WESTERN Washington, to ride the bike to Hannigan in Kentucky. Once they started the installation process, they moved that original front wheel, and the 140/70-18 tire over to the sidecar. Also installed a new Yokohama Avid Envigor 195/55-16 run flat onto the rear wheel, before I rode out to Kentucky.

West side...just outside the small town of Tenino, 15 miles south of Olympia.

I "nominate"....DRONE...to be the Washington State rep....as he knows more about sidecars, and the hack community than I do.

On the ride out to Hannigan in Kentucky, I was fortunate to attend the Flint Hills Sidecar Rally, in Council Grove, Kansas. What a great bunch of people at this gathering. I even won the Long Distance  award.....of course, coming from Washington State, it was almost a given.

That is a very nice looking rig. Nice to know that Hannigan will do all of those extras for you.
