Hello and welcome to part three of my BMW GS Sidecar conversion. You can read part one of the build here, and part two of the build here.
My name is Murph and I am a full-time motorcycle photojournalist, and have been on the road now for the last 2 1/2 years and roughly 60,000 miles, traveling all over the U.S.A., Western Canada and south only as far as Baja California.
Central and South America I have not yet travelled to, but intend to on the final leg of my 7 yr RTW that I am currently on.
My travels and this journey all started by accident in December of 2009 when two things happened in my life that would significantly shape and channel me to where I am today.
The first event related to my house that was in foreclosure, the looming hammer of the banks closing in and taking it back was becoming more and more of a reality. This played heavily on my mind, as the thought of trying to get out from under all of the debt I incurred after losing my business due to my battle with alcoholism seemed like an insurmountable task at the time, made even more difficult and depressing with the hemorrhaging economy that we are still in today.
