Had motorcycles my whole life, but as the family grew I wanted more of them to enjoy motorcycling with me. So, I had a choice to make............

I recognize that rig! If you bought it around 2014 in the suburbs of Chicago from a man with an English Accent, then that's the sidecar I grew up in! I put in over 200,000 miles in that sidecar before the age of 13. We went through several different configurations of the rig, but the Goldwing was the best. The Unit leading link forks on it made a huge difference in handling. I miss that sidecar so much. If you ever decide that it's time to let it go, I do hope you'll consider contacting me. Isn't the internet a wonderful place?

Also, I see you're in Englewood now. We moved to Florida as well! We're barely an hour outside of Englewood :)
