    Looking for a hack

    My wife is looking for a hack for her R1200C. She likes the bike but it's just to heavy for her. We saw a sweet Hannigan at the National two years ago, but are open to suggestions.

    I strongly suggest she find a S/TEP class and learn more about riding a hack before you make the investment. There are alot more physical aspects involved in riding a hack as opposed to holding up a heavy for her bike.

    Taking a course is definately a good (great) idea. Another suggestion, considering buying a rig that is already mounted.
    When I started thinking of sidecars, I purchased a '77 Honda GL1000 with California tub. It cost me around $4000. Less than the cost of purchasing a sidecar and mounting it. I bought it with the idea that I would sell it within a couple of years...either because I did not care for sidecars or to upgrade.
    There is more involved than simply bolting the tub to the tug. You will have to consider such things as frame/suspension mods. Buying a rig that is already put together can save you time and money.
    Another option, have her buy a lighter bike!

    Not really my cup of tea, but a can-am spyder might be worth considering. Easier than a hack to learn.

    Cool Side Car

    I have a 2004 K1200gt with a Hannigan Clasic side car. We love it, the side car is my Wifes "limo" It pushes backwards easier than rolling a 2 wheel bike backwards. You don't need to wory about droping it on its side any more. Red lights are sweet too, you don't need to put your feet down at a light any more. It is NOT a motorcycle any more. It's a completely different "Animal", no more leaning. Once you get used to the handeling charictoristics its great.
