Hello All....here goes
My history on 2 or 3 wheels started at 18yrs. with an Honda 360 and quickly moved to a GREAT 1976 BMW R75/6. When first child came along we built an EML/R100 1980 Hack to keep riding.
Well many bikes later and much older, I became friends with the Hannigan's..doing there Israel Motorcycle Tour with my wife last Nov.
This year at Americade Dave & Ruth came up to the house for dinner in this GREAT ZX-14/HP Hannigan...WOW Was I blown away.
At the BMW Rally in Bloomsburg PA (HOT HOT WEEK) I got my first chance to drive this fantastic rig. OK it took 2 days to wipe the smile off my face. So you guessed it, Dave & I haggled and now this HP Sidecar is in my garage (and I am smiling all the time).
Love to ride, 2 or 3 wheels are my thing. Have a long past history of Club racing 4 wheel sports cars, but bikes are my first and best smile machines.
Thanks for taking the time to read my opening, hope to meet all of you over time.
Jewels

Welcome to the HP sidecar connection. It is a whole new experience!

Piece of advice- First time you snap the throttle shut, yank handle bars all the way to the left, and spin around in the middle of the road, make sure you warn the wife ahead of time!! Smile
