Winter in Seattle is easy compared to some places I've lived (Minnesota, New York) and I've been able to ride almost year round. Now I can ride all year round if I want. Had a Liberty sidecar installed on my 03 Road King. It looks good and gives it a "historic" look. Only negative is no leaning into corners. I've have to push and pull on the bars to turn instead. Had the front end of the bike raked 5 degrees with trees Liberty installed. Makes the turns easier. Went on my first run on New Years Day after serious practice for one week. I got the sidecar on Christmas Eve ~!Awesome! - great timing (as I ordered it 3 months ago). If you decide to add a sidecar bike to your collection do yourself a favor and get some parking lot and easy surface street practice first or else your very first right turn will scare the heck out of you.
