    Absolutely beautiful rig. Is that an Oregon plate? Thought for a minute it might be my old K100 until I remembered yours is a '95. Mine was a '91. Wasn't into sidecars when I owned it but I have no doubt about its capability to be a good tug.

    Hacks are a blast! After 30 years of 2wheeling I got a Ural last year and haven't run 2 tanks of gas through my K since. Yeah, hacks have limitation but that's what makes them fun.

    Lots of good advice for you already given here, heed it well. Your KLT will make a great sidecar tug, comfortable for the rider and plenty of power to pull the car. Plus, most of the maintenance stuff is on the left side of the bike so it's easier to work on than most rigs. Just stick with what you've been told so far-- 4-point mount properly done, read the yellow book and the USCA materials to help get the setup right, and if you get stuck the Southwestern rep for USCA is in NM and could probably put you in touch with someone to help with setup should you desire. Good luck with the project and have fun touring with the completed rig.

    Best,

    A great shot. It really shows how that front fork and tire are deflected in this maneuver (most noticeable under the headlight where the two tubes are visible; and the rim has disappeared behind the tire at about the 4 o'clock position).
