I think I will pass.... If I get to where I need a sidecar I will sell the Trophy and just use my car!

Sidecars for a wide range of motorcycles is what this company does
Found the article on Motorcycle Monthly this month, with the pic of the Trophy   :156:
Found it amusing  :001:

And no, not my cup of tea either  :151:

Why? When you can't hold up a 700 pound bike anymore, that's why. We'll all come to that point someday...its quit riding, ride a smaller bike, a sidecar or a CanAm. Quit riding would be my last choice.

Why?  Well it isn't for the rider of the bike.  It is for the passenger.  My wife grew up in Hungary when cars were hard to comeby and has many, many happy childhood memories of riding in the side car of her father's motorcycle.   I would consider getting one if only to get her back on a bike.  She won't ride pillion

Thanks, but no thanks. When time comes to quit riding I'll switch to convertible, if I still can.
Regarding this one I've found the combination of old style Watsonian with modern Trophy kind of odd...???
An old biker must be a good rider

Those who ride sidecars get it in their blood, so it is a personal thing. And as w8d4it mentions, sometimes it is to take the wife, kids, best friend dog etc rather than ride alone.
