Yoshie has a new home

I've been meaning to blog about this for days now, but other rides and snow riding got pushed to the front of the line.

Yoshie has been bought from Unique Rides where I had traded her and my 2011 Ural Patrol Sidecar rig, Valencia.

Her new owner's name is Cecil and he lives in the Elbert, CO area.  He picked up Yoshie for quite the good price and is now in the process of going over her in detail, to include doing a valve clearance adjustment and replacing the drive chain.

He found a damaged master link on the old chain and got a new one from Krause.  You can get all the details and latest pictures from his new blog about his new rig:  LINK

Here's a picture of Yoshie, borrowed from Cecil's blog, as she arrived at her new home:

I tried to give all the information possible to Cecil before the purchase and I believe he'll be happy with Yoshie once she's put back together.  Though Cecil has never ridden a sidecar rig before, he is planning on taking the Basic Sidecar/Trike Course given by ABATE this coming Spring.

Congrats to the new owner. Looks like he knows his way around bikes, too.

I hope that Yoshie will be winter bound as well.

Congrats to Cecil and Yoshie. I bet you are happy to see it go to a good home.

SonjaM, the new owner is doing work that I avoided due to perceived complexity....I think she's in good hands.

Trobairitz, yep, quite happy.

It took longer to sell than I thought it would. The V-Strom is such a popular bike.
