I’ve always been a big fan of sidecars and believed that in addition to owning a regular two-wheeled motorcycle, the real enthusiast needs to stable a “hack” in his garage or carport. Back east the third wheel added to your window of opportunity for riding… in those shoulder seasons when the day can start brisk and sunny and end up delivering an inch or two of snow before you get home.
At the very top of the pecking order amongst sidecarists you find the sidecar racers and their outfits. These rides are purpose-built and are blindingly fast. A world different from my own, sedate, BMW K75 rig.
Take a look here. This is fast.
You’ll notice that the hardest worker in a sidecar team is the “monkey.”
