Looking at some of these RDS sidecars, at first I wasn't sure I like them. But the more I look at them, the more I like them. Do all the RDS sidecars come with sidecar steering? Can you get just the sidecar or do you have to buy the whole bike kit?

That's right up my alley. I'll have to keep that in the back of my mind.
Maybe more towards the middle. Question Thinking

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know a ball park figure for the cost of a complete RDS CHS rig say for a Hayabusa or a Honda Blackbird?

Thanks, 4t, for the info. Too bad the foreign exchange rate was so unfavorable with our declining dollar vs the euro. But I sppose the longer one waits the more dollars it will take to buy one. Plenty of economic forecasters are saying the dollar will drop to $1.50/euro by the end of the year.

The good news [if you can call it that] is that your rig should hold its value because a new one like it will cost even more dollars than you had to pay. The bad news is who will be able to afford one? Do you plan to do the assembly yourself?
