Fire at Hannigan

FYI for anyone with a Hannigan rig or thinking about one:

Here's hoping they get back to normal business soon.

"I really don't know, (the cause) obviously something got hot that shouldn't have," Hannigan says.

Ya think?

Re: Fire at Hannigan

Hear is to hoping they are back in full production soon. I bought a used rig from them a few years back and they are great folks. Picked me up from the airport...took good care of me and I loved the rig. '01 Bandit 1200S with the center hub steering. Thing was sexy and fast. Finally sold it when I realized I was only using to take my 13 yr old black labrador 'Harley' for rides to the store.

Re: Fire at Hannigan

Best wishes to the folks at Hannigan; you couldn't ask for nicer people. My Hannigan trailer was the one Ruth Hannigan pulled behind her LT several years ago. She had the trailer on display at Sturgis; it happened to be color matched (Basalt Gray) to my LT and Ruth graciously agreed to sell it to me on the spot.

I hope they are up and running as soon as possible.
