What did you do with your Sidecar today - Too

Joan and I went for a little ride today. Yes - in February. It was in the high 60's. Joan is in some sort of challenge putting nature pictures on facebook with her little group of friends. (Not the Facebook kind but real friends - the kind with skin on.) All we found were rocks.

It was in the 60's here too. I almost didn't ride today. But it will be in the 70's for the next week.

The difference is the 60's and 70's are good here in Feb. Did you put on your electric heated jacket? My plan is to ride every month of the winter and it isn't out of the ordinary to have a 50's plus day at least once a month in the winter in the Black Hills. (When we lived on the other side of the state the snow would come sometimes in October and not melt until May or June.) We haven't had our March blizzard yet. that is almost a given. We were at last Butterfly Rally and missed a major blizzard and that was in May. We just suck it up and wait for the snow to melt. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

well I finally hooked up my brakes for the sidecar, I haven't tried them out yet but they feel good
I had to custom modify the arm coming from the master cylinder as it was designed for a bike with stock pegs and I have floor boards
a cut here and a weld there and it looks like a factory set up

We have missed several nice riding days here. I have the trailer project to finish, just received my SharkAudio stereo for the rig and I am trying to get the "Bra" made for the front of the sidecar.
Not to mention general maintenance stuff on the vehicles, wifes van is due for timing belt and some gaskets replaced.

I took the beagle out for a ride to sort out and remaining issues, and then took it out to grab a 12 pack of beer (which it's extremely handy for!)
