    Bucket List Help In Madison WI.

    I'm not much for posting on forums... In fact this is my first ever. But, it's for a good cause...

    A close friend of mine (he's actually my ex-girlfriends father and he sold my my first motorcycle... R850R) has a friend who has been diagnosed with MS. She is about 60 or so, I'm guessing, and the disease is progressing. She has always wanted to ride in a motorcycle sidecar. On her short list of things she wants to try, this is near the top. If you live around Madison WI, have a motorcycle with a side car, and have the kindness to do so, please contact me and I will put you in touch with Tom. Or if you have questions, or a recommendation as to where a good place to make this request would be please contact me as well.

    Thank you all so much in advance.

    Post this on Soviet Steeds http://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/ The Ural guys do these things and are most willing to help.

    Another source of quite active sidecar enthusiasts around the country at at the US Sidecar Association forum (USCA) at www.sidecar.com

    They have members all over the place and this is also something that a number of them would do.

    I wish that I could help out, but I am no where near WI and my rig is out of commission for now.

    Sounds like a good reason for a ride. PM details to me.

    I am not so sure about this. Sorry for being sceptical if this is all legit, but this all sounds very familiar. Seems like we had this request here some time ago. In Wisconsin.

    There is a very active "Hacks" forum on ADVRider. Lots of requests of this nature get fullfilled. http://advrider.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=56

    I'm on the west side of Madison, and have a Velorex rig (i.e., a not-huge sidecar), and will assuredly provide a ride for her.
