    Saw this on another forum. Not a big fan of sidecars as I don't think I'd ever have a need for one, but I do think that this looks pretty good.

    I remember that.... looks OK I guess but I could never get my head round the point of sidecars...

    You lose ALL the advantages of a motorbike.... just get a car and be done with it....

    PLUS left turns can make you a believer if you are not one already  or at least make your left cheek grab your right cheek and slam permanently shut
    A nasty weather day riding is still better than any day working

    Hey cropbiker, first, nothing personal.

    It annoys me when people say, "I don't know why you would want to upgrade lights, horn, exhaust, windscreen ..." insert modification here.

    People make modifications for personal reasons. Let's see, if I wanted to take my _____ riding with me who has a disability. When I can no longer hold up the weight of a loaded Trophy. When I want to continue to ride in my old age but refuse to ride a conventional two rear wheel trike and I think Bombardier stuff is crap.

    Just cause we don't understand it or, it does not fit our circumstance or style does not make it wrong or not worth it.

    Personally I think that is a good looking rig and I'm sure the owner is proud and pleased with the results as he should be. I don't think you lose ALL the benefits of a bike and there are undoubtedly some that are added even though we may not see them at first glance.

    It's just different.
    YMMV as might your opinion

    Studley

    It looks nice; but shouldn't the sidecar be on the opposite side of the bike?   :153:

    I think sidehacks are kinda cool.  Not looking to do one any time soon, but I would pick a bike with a big ol' engine with some phat torque, like a Wing or Rocket.
