Hi,Gus and Dean, NJ also, (Wayne) I have a 2004 Ultra Classic with TLE sidecar, right now it's a project replacing the triple tree and have to check the cam chain tensioners, and a couple of other little odds and ends. Too cold to work in the garage and work schedule sorta gets in the way. Maybe in the springtime we could meet up. Not too many sidecars in our area.

Well, that makes four of us so far in NJ. Maybe we can have a parade 🙂 haha Seriously, we should at least have a small gathering sometime in the spring/early summer. NJ is not THAT big and I am sure we could find a common meeting ground.
BTW Dean, it's at a standstill. Waiting for it to get painted plus its just too damn cold to work on it anyway. Hopefully, by March it'll be put together and ready for some trials.

Gus, you may want to pick a good weekend at a somewhat interesting location for an informal get-together for sidecar enthusiasts. Possibilities include campgrounds, marinas and the like. The Uncertain?Rendezvous Caddo Lake rally began with such the simple idea: We just selected a facility with a cafe', reasonable accommodations and a place to hang out and tell stories, then invited sidecar enthusiasts to come join us. It later developed into a "rally" with the help of JR/Avanell and all the attendees. It was the first sidecar event we'd ever attended. FYI, here's the original post: https://www.sidecar.com/mbbs22/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=6157&posts=9&highlight=Uncertain&highlightmode=1#M39537

I forgot to add my friend Hank. He has a BMW with a Ural and is also in Ocean City. He's a long time USCA member but doesn't use a computer.

Woo hoo! That's makes 5 so far. I have no problem meeting down there but perhaps we can meet halfway (Belmar?) to make it easy on everyone.
Let's keep looking for more people. There's got to be more than 5 in NJ 🙂

Count me in how about a ride to new hope pa great riding area

after many years i just bought another sidecar.i am in South Jersey.hopefully as the weather gets nice we will catch you out on the road.

i took my first sidecar drive in 15 years today.they dropped my sidecar off at a local diner .of course it didnt start but thats why jumper cables are good thing to have.but it was nice to be on a bike again and great not to have to put my feet down.so iam looking forward to spring and meeting some more sidecar people here in NJ
