Something simple, a frame with thick metal or wood floor.

Funny indeed! It would be even more amusing trying to get the Hayabusa on/in it!

Hey Treeve,

Hope it went well on your no longer a maiden voyage. Peter, here is how my time is going. I went out for a ride on this beautiful evening and took photos, beautiful photos with beautiful light. Even now at just before 9.30 at night the light is stunning. None of the photos came out, there is something wrong with my camera. I am not bored here, but I am frustrated and sorry for the hijack!

Hey guys,  

Keep the hijack coming, i don't care  Wink.  Peter's Sidecar Tow is a fantastic idea.  I definitely could have used it.  

Sorry about not posting an update.  I had a rugby game Saturday and played the full 80 mins.  The ole body is pretty sore to say the least so I have mostly been napping and laying on the couch  Tongue  

The second run went a lot better, but still not perfect.  First, the carbs will overflow if the gas is on, the choke is on and I am trying to start it.  Once it starts the overflow is gone.  Open the choke, overflow is gone.  Weird.   Second, while riding through the blue hills, the bike seemed to pop out of gear, revs jumped, i pulled in the clutch and coasted, then the bike died (uh oh).  I pulled off to the side and tried to start it up.  The starter motor spun but it wouldn't fire up.  It also seemed to be stuck in a false neutral.  I eventually managed to getting the shifting back to normal (rocked the bike while in gear) and managed to get it started.  I turned right around and went home with no issues but i was driving delicately.  If it happens again there might be something messed up with the tranny.  Joy!   Cry

I also took the bike over to get it inspected for its sticker.  The owner of the local shop (Harley place) in quincy is kind of a boob and failed me for a leaky head gasket.  Now there was no active leaking, just dirt in that area from maybe an old leak.  I got home and cleaned it off and will see if i can find a leak.  My guess, there is no leak and he is just a donkey trying to get money out of me for parts/repair.  I tried to be nice and order some parts from there in the past and it was a horrible experience.  Took them 3 weeks to get it when i could have gotten it in 3 days for less money.  I also had them remove a tire for me which took about 15 seconds and they charged me $45.  If it wasn't the only inspection place in quincy, i would never go back....

All in all I went it about 12 miles and made it home with no pushing.  A success in my book.  I will try to take some pics/photos soon.  Let the excitement continue

Looks great man! All you need is some bar end mirrors. You know, so you can see something other than your shoulders.
