I have one similar. It goes on with velcro dots and does a good job. Just pull it off to clean or do maintenance then stick it back on.

Now in limbo trying to decide what I want to get.

yeah cusin jack for that price i just might try one to. even if it yellowed in a year you could still afford to get another one. they seem to have pretty good prices on there stuff. i just ordered a couple of timing belt tensioners from them for 61bucks a piece. the local honda stealer wants 90 bucks each. btw, i like the looks of that ural side car. i saw one in maupin, oregon last summer when were rafting the deschutes. got to sit on it and it fit pretty good. sure would be fun on the logging roads around here in the mountains. but i am a little hesitant as it only has a flat out top end of around 75mph so it would be working pretty hard to even keep up a pace of 65.

Yep, I've got one probably the same type as Fatalattraction. It's got a couple chips in the plastic that might have broken the glass on the headlight assembly so I think it's paid me back several times already. In a lot of areas from now to early summer is the high risk time for rock damage because of all the "sand" they've spread on the roads. Take a look at the replacement cost of your headlight glass, protection is well worth it.

Cyclepath.... years ago, Red and I hooked up a used Motorvation sidecar to our '81 Interstate so we could take our boy along.

Left it on for three or four years. Not exactly "motorcycling" but it was fun! Went like stink.....and handled gravel and dirt roads like nobody's business. Rode it up the Alaskan Highway.....

Only problem, when the kid rebelled and wouldn't ride in it anymore, I took it off..... but then had trouble at traffic lights putting my foot down! Had gotten out of the habit, you see! Sure looked dumb, pulling up real cool to a stopsign or red light... and then slowly toppling over like somebody on "Laugh In"! Took away all my cool!
