    Seeing the dogs - especially Glenlivet - enjoying the experience so much really underlines the point of the entire project. You have extended your shared experiences by years and it is obvious that that is worth the great deal of time and effort. Beautifully done.

    One more followup before I move on. I took Glenlivet for a 60 mile ride today to start building up his miles before setting off for Tennessee June 1st. He did very well.

    Play stops are essential

    Barley used to ride this way. I encourage it as it keeps his face out of harm's way of flying debris

    So we're doing a series of rides both to reestablish our rhythm and to check for wear, loose fasteners, or other post-rebuild gremlins. We leave on the 1st so will have plenty of time to meander through West Virginia, Virginia, North and South Carolina, northern Georgia and Tennessee before arriving at the rally in Lebanon. Hope to see you there!

    The application of dog slobber; the final and an essential step in the refurbishment of your sidecar.

    Pete:

    What did you end up doing to cure the fitment issue of the top?

    I used to call them "dog smellin' prints". The never ending cleaning project.

    I sanded down the outline of the windshield. Not wanting to mar the paint I stopped about an inch above the end, and that part will also have to be carefully removed so that last fastener isn't a battle.

    BTW, I call those smudges nose art.

    I just discovered this thread today and spent the time (@ work) reading it with fascination.
    You have done a wonderful job, but I state the obvious.

    Out of curiosity, what happened to the 2010 GS which I think you referred to as the donor bike.

    That GSA will be up for sale when we return from the rally. With all the farkles it will make someone very happy. Currently it is tucked away in a corner of the garage hooked up to a trickle charger
