I suspect the whole things pulls to one side when you accelerate or break!! Would focus your mind very well in slippery conditions.. :)

When I get to a certain age ( unknown at this time) I will opt for either a trike or sidecar. When I see cool shots like this, it makes me go towards the sidecar everytime. There are so many options out there now for sidecar, so many ideas and toys !!! :D

Which brings up a question to this newbie! I have seen little about the simple trike conversion. I would like three people, the size of my family, but is there a two back seat trike out there?? :D

A sidecar can haul 3 or more people depending on its size. Check out the United Sidecar website.. www.sidecar.com
for information. And get the correct size sidecar for the bike. Doug

Hi I have a sidecar and they are a blast. I first road one 42 years ago after riding solo and ended up bouncing of a car.
They take a little getting used to, but cause interest "people love riding in them" and are a lot of fun when you master them.
If it was that easy everyone would be doing it!

Hello electraglide. Does your St Bernard double up as an anti theft device?
Small world though! I had an auto electrical business in Huntingdon used to go shopping in Peterborough.
I know its the one in England because of the position of your sidecar.
Do they still have the big bike meet there? we do in Daytona.

But is that a sidecar, or a trailer with the bike parked beside it. Hmmmmmm. It looks like one of the trailers avalable from microlitetrailer.com, the one called the moto-mate. It is three feet wide, and can easily sleep one inside, but would be might tight for two unless they were really slender people. The moto-mate, depending on where a person was to buy it, is available for $3500 or so.

Hi Whatastate,
Yes he would slobber all over them, The bike meet (BMF) is still held at the East of England show ground we will be going to it this weekend 14th/15th.

Hi themainviking,
No it is not a trailer but a sidecar called a Squire RX4 single seater they are fitted on the left side over here, it is ilegal to ride with sidecars on the right unless the vehical is pre 1982. Hope this helps.

I'd love to take a sidecar for a spin...I think the Ural's are way cool based on the old BMW design and are available with two wheel drive for the snow.. 8-)

I wonder if you could get an English and American version of the same side car and mount one on each side? Now THAT would be cool..

Years ago, I had a Honda 750 with a chrome luggage rack on the back. I used to strap a plastic milk crate on the rack, drop in our Beagle mix, and haul him all over the area. He liked it so well that I never even had to tie him in.
