Drop by to say hey!

I'm alive and well (which anyone that knows me, means yes I'm riding) health is good, gardens almost ready.
Been spending a lot of time in the sticks, someone told me yesterday, my bike was filthy even for me ,lots of dirt and gravel.
Did the side car thing for the dog with an Equalean, he hates it. So off the bike back to the drawing board. Seems everytime it leans he goes to regain his balance and shifts the sidecar weight, maybe I'll just build him a trailer.
I used my K75 as the test bed it is 400lbs lighter than the KLT, but I don't think the size of the bike will make any difference. It is the movement that gets him. I still have the plans for the articulated rig, but this thing came along so I gave it a shot. With the articulator the car stays level, so that me still hold promise, the Equalean pivots with the bike.
Oh yeah anyone want to buy and Equalean sidehack?

Re: Drop by to say hey!

I was just wondering where ya been, so I looked at yer profile and found this. Been missing your wit and wisdom. I also noticed we share the same birthday, just different years. Not that that is any kind of intersting information.
