Let's see, he Vaquero or the custom,tricked out, killer paint, bomber sidecar drifter?  That's a tough decision (no offence Chili  ;D )

Hey, why haven't we seen more pics of this beast on here earlier???

Well we are definitely making the trip - leaving from NE Indiana.  The only question really is are we trailering or riding?  If we ride down I will bring the 800 and Tom will ride the Vaquero (easier on his back) - if we trailer then he will bring the 1500 drifter - -but then he got the sidecar done and he really wants to bring that too - - but then we'd have to bring the big trailer....so not sure what the hell we're doing - other than definitely going =).  Suggestions?


OMG!  That sidecar is 9000 steps beyond cool!   8)   8)   8)

Just curious, does the prop turn at all?

Did you/your husband get those rims powdercoated or straight spray painted?  How does the paint hold up on those?  I'm thinking of doing a similar thing on my rims, but I don't know how the finish will hold up.

The rims are powder-coated - this project was started a year and a half ago and just finished about 2 weeks ago - - - been ridden four or five times since complete.  I will try to post a before and after on here.  You wouldn't believe the amount of pieces on this bike/sidecar that were from swap meets and junk piles!  The "guns" are/were chair legs - seriously.  Yes, the propeller turns.  We have it pinned except when riding in town as at about 35 mph it gets really scary sounding....afraid we're gonna burn out the bearings.  I'll post a link to the facebook album.

He really wants to bring it....I don't want to drag a 32' trailer....

He bought his drifter after our son totaled his victory.  He had ridden my 800 (our first drifter) and really liked it, so went looking for a 1500...and then added a few little things...we get bored in Indiana over the winter...

The Vaquero is a recent addition - we traded another bike on it - it's the one he rides when comfort is a factor...with a bad back the ride is now very important for anything over about an hour....and on the plus side it fits me too for the days when I just want a bit more power!  Very nice bike and it was a deal we just couldn't refuse....probably gonna stay stock though.  Really this is the bike he wants there with us to ride daily....but wants to show you all his hard work on the others!

The next project is going to be a "rat bike".  Ok, well after I get the one done I'm working on now - a 1500 that will be carbon fiber wrapped with apple green metallic striping - it's for sale, or it will be if I ever get it done. =)

Looks like BamaBikerMom and I are going to attend. We will likely be rolling in around 10:30pm Friday and leaving Sunday morning. At least we will be there for the Saturday ride, bike show and banquet.
We aren't driving as far as most of you only a measly 210 miles. I'm impressed with the with the all the iron butts out there.
here's our route...


No interstates for us, almost all of it is just 2 lane blacktop west of Rome,GA.

    I almost caused a disaster. I washed my bike in preparation for the trip to Helen. I decided to take it out and get it all buggy again (around here, a quick ride up the river is all it takes). I just checked the forecast for next week in Helen...let's hope it's correct!

I'm having a senior moment.  I think I registered for the Drift-In, but I can't remember for sure..... Is there any way I can check to make sure this got done along with getting my t-shirt ordered???  I do have a room at the hotel for me and David and Sandy already booked though.  Looking forward to another great gathering!!

  Friday was a little field trip to the Dragon. Not everybody went, but those who did felt it was the most fun you could have with a motorcycle and your clothes on. One thing I'll bet would be hard for most people to realize..there are no straight roads around here. Typically, if you follow 2 seconds behind another rider, they have disappeared around the next bend....The last picture is called the tree of shame...no Drifter parts there!
  On the way there, we literally rode into a rain cloud at the top of the Cherohala Skyway

That's pretty cool, Troll.  Wish I was there.

The Dragon was the one thing I really wanted to do.

Did anybody ever get a count of Drifter riders for the weekend?  Got any names to go with those faces??


Inquiring minds want to know....   

Has next year's location been set yet??

   ;) He was hiding your true beauty from the rest of us so we could not see it.
 

     I have noticed one thing right off in the pictures. I have been to 2 Ride For Dad's this year and the Biker Reunion in New Liskeard, noticed that all them Drifter Riders and not one pair of chaps, yet at the rides and reunion all the Harley riders were leather encased in chaps and vest and jackets no matter the temps. or the weather. Wonder why?

I personally do not like to wear chaps. As far as all Harley riders wearing them I think it is because Harley says u need to..... to be cool...... I dunno :o
