That looks like the ultimate retirement toy.... lots of space, comfort and to boot you can take a fridge along for frostie anywhere anytime.... :thumleft:

Blot a spare wheel to the back and you never even have to worry about a flattie either.... ;)
Long live the Underdog.........

Earlier this evening during loadshedding I planned a bit the week ahead... have an appointment with Vuyo tomorrow morning to get the sidecar certified, fit new tires, finish the mudguard and lining inside the cab, get a power supply and hook it up for the fridge etc..

Busy week. Oh ! and I must also work.

Then I remembered it will also be the sixth anniversary of buying the 1150, I was reminded of this thread

Bear in mind I will ride it for a few years and then probably add a sidecar. We are talking about on of the big tourers.

 :biggrin: If you can dream it you can have it

where were you off too a Sunday or so ago when i passed you on the N2 heading towards Jbay...looked the bizznizz  :thumleft:

About ten years from now I'm going to stop working, sell everything I own, get on a bike and ride untill its time to move on

10 years?
You already now can ride to the vast North on tar, you surely know that?
Plus you need to pillion, so that automatically makes for something substantial.
A good choice would be an older 1200 boxer, GS or RT depending on what you want to go see then.
