Update:

Jellybean is now about 4-1/2 months old and we're still waiting for delivery of our sidecar. Talked to Jay at DMC today and he's finally committed to a delivery date of September 11th, a full month behind schedule. Oh well, hope it happens soon as the puppy is really outgrowing the tank bag set-up. On Sunday we'll take her to the annual VME (Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts) Isle of Vashon T.T. and we've reserved a cabin at the ocean for a weekend in mid-September. That is supposed to be her maiden voyage in her new sidecar so I sure hope Jay comes through.

Here's a picture Gayle Guthrie (Washinton State MGNOC Rep.) took of us leaving the Deep Forest camp-out last month:

DEFINITIVELY poo on the naysayers , met a fellow that traveled all over the fricken country with his dog riding along in the tank bag..
The dog was of the smaller size may be 15 lbs and was as happy as a dog can be..

LOOKIE WHAT I FINALLY GOT YESTERDAY!  cheers  After thirteen weeks of waiting, Jellybean's chariot has finally arrived. cheers   Unfortunately the order is still not complete, a rear luggage rack and new triple tree are still to come, but I picked it up yesterday morning (four weeks overdue) and spent the afternoon and evening putting it together. Made several test rides and alignment adjustments earlier today and after lunch was able to take Esther and Jelly for a spin. We showed it off around the neighborhood a bit and ended up at the San Gennaro Italian Heritage Festival for dinner. It just doesn't get any better than this (unless I'm on the GRiSO).

Apologies to all the Ghetto guys who planned to come over for the assembly, but lots of folks were off to the Humbug camp-out this weekend and I was just itching to get this thing on the road. Plus, you would have endured a lot of cursing as I struggled to make it all work. Anyway, there's still a triple tree to install when it comes in and I'm sure I'll need some help with that. And we might as well have a party to unveil the rig anyway. Stay tuned.

Sweet, kick-ass!

What a dick your rig source is. Delivered, late and incomplete. What a ringing endorsement.

I'm going to try to be nice and keep my mouth shut. I'm just excited to finally have it. BTW, we had a great time sitting in the beer garden at Misty Isle Farms on Vashon Island yesterday, watching the sheepdogs, border collies mostly with a couple of kelpies thrown in, driving sheep through a beautiful rolling field. Jellybean was rapt! And needless to say, she got a LOT of attention. She's so damn cute, everyone wants to dote on her. I don't blame them, I find her irresistible too.

A more recent picture of Jellybean's sidecar - I didn't like the seam in the fiberglass body so I customized it with some retro-reflective tape.

You picked up on that, did ya? She's still a little unsure about this whole thing. For now, she rides in Esther's lap in the sidecar. On Sunday Esther had her first practice session and I carried JB in my lap for a while. She's relaxed, not tense at all, but not too keenerkeen on it either. She's the same way in the four-wheeled car. I think she gets a little queasy sometimes. Anyway, in time, we hope she'll learn to love it and will figure out that it's much more fun to go along than to be left at home. Keep in mind, she's only 5-1/2 months old.

Here's Esther taking a few practice laps...

Well both the Cali tank and the chair have the right shape to be called the "Jellybean Jalopy".
Just needs the right flavor, whats yours? I go for the black beans first.

Esther got Jellybean a biker jacket and today I made a leather helmet for her. You can see from the pictures that she's not too impressed with being made to wear a costume, but she's a good sport. Now she's all set to hit the road for the National in John Day next week. Safe to say, she's bound to make a big impression!

Unintentional, but why not throw a little BDSM into the mix?
