  • The nightmare is over

    I had my wifes Fatboy & sidecar on Ebay. After 2 weeks someone pulls the trigger on it at the last minute. Hopefully this will be my last experience with H-D. I think my wife finally lost her urge for them after pouring untold buckets of money into this one, only to have it disappoint again and again. I will miss the sidecar, wish I could have kept it and put it on my Roadstar, but that ain't happening. On the bright side, it could have been worse, only lost around $3K on the whole ugly ordeal, which, in the MoCo realm is getting away cheap. There it is.

      Ever since her amputation she has not felt confident riding. She doesn't trust the prosthesis. She can ride anything with a heel-toe shifter. She rode the Fatboy before we put the sidecar on but she's just not sure anymore. Damn shame too she was one of the better female riders I have ever known.

      They are a love hate thing, but yea, unruly is a fair description. Still a lot of fun, very versatile, and will churn through mud like nobody's business.

    What year and engine was that... and, is it rather endemic to that model??? Never had one... Roadies have been my first and only big bike... other than a few months with a Strat. Been a Roadie rider and lover of them since summer of '07. Still have that one, and added 2 more keepers since!!!

      A trike is the way to go. It was for me and I am as happy as a pig in mud.

        I have a sidecar rig and love it. It is unruly and you have to pay attention on turns AND sweeping curves for sure. Vstar 650 and Velorex 562 sidecar. Great combo. Only goes about 70 mph top speed on highway but so much fun and very practical. I bought it all together professionally set up and had 15k miles on it. I did every bit of maintenance you could imagine to the bike new filters/fluids/brakes/tires/lubed everything/upgrades seats risers clutch etc. It's a blast and should last me for decades.
