Have you got the rig up and running yet?  If not, I'll go back and dig up some references on mounting the car.  Anything to help a fellow addict.  But it's kind of late right now and I need to get some sleep.  Let me know.

Took Kozi (the dog) for her first solo (without human) ride in the rocket today.  Stopped several places around town and got a lot of positive attention.  She done good.  We have to get some dogles soon.  ::)

 MrMike
Loved your posts. I just bumbled into a sidecar today. Havney even picked it up as yet. Its a Velorex that I thought I got cheap (time will tell). I too have a 2012 G5 exactly like yours.
Will have to sell the C5 and the Triumph Legend to make garage space, but am looking forward to some new madness.
Ridden bikes for years, but never a Hack. Your post was very helpful. Looking forward to leveraging your experience in the coming days and weeks.

Yikes, sounds like a home made death trap rig story!   :P :o

On the other hand... I love the way my sidecar rig handles.  :) I attribute that quality to a solidly constructed frame and proper alignment.  ;)

Since purchasing second hand, I've replaced the sidecar shock due to a bad irreplaceable bushing, also a worn swing arm bushing, and put an actual sidecar tire on. Replacing these regular maintenance items all made drastic improvement.  8)

I just came across this thread.  A delight to follow your adventures.  I have had a cozy on my C5 for about 5 years now - runs great.  I have never seen a need for weights - with a lightweight unit look the cozy, a little body English goes a long way.  I have found front end wobble is made worse by a windshield and slightly low front tire pressure.  My only complaint is that the sidecar wheel gets very rusty.  I wonder if I had a year when the chrome plating was inadequate.
