Last night getting ready to pack bike up. Found the mounting bolts for a key mount to sidecar broken off.
So wrenching until after Midnight. Tap breaks off in hole. Easy out breaks . One thing after another..
Robbed bolts from left side passenger foot boards. So Wife well be in sidecar until I can get some new ones today.

By 0100. Good to go. test alignment of the sidecar dam near got personal with a deer. I did find what was left of one of the bolts in the road on the test ride.So Now I know when and where this all started.
0545 having a cup of coffee. Going to pack up in a few minutes.
Get wife up an get this show going.. Meeting Scott aka Bleachy and some others at HD Museum in Milwaukee about 1100.


See you there.

Never fun when you have one of those days/nights where if it could go wrong, it does; making a 30 minute job last hours. Glad you got it figured out for now, smitty.

Day two here at SW all is good. A very spirited ride to Washington Island was great.

The repair held up. Put left side passenger board back on. Replaced the bolts in right side mounts and good to go.
