These side cars are cool. I really like the yellow one. However, when you drive a side car, does the experience mess up your motorcycle riding? I mean when I play racquet ball and then go back to tennis, I am all messed up. Nice story.
I found that driving a sidecar was such a different experience from riding a standard M/C that, once I got over the adjustment the first time and was riding the sidecar right, I didn't have any trouble going back and forth.
Coupla years ago I happened to be in Buena Vista (that's bu-na-vis-ta, to you who are not Appalachians), Virginia at an annual aggregation of the hackers. Everything from 1940's style with H-D's, Indians, and Britbikes to the articulated kind that let's the bike lean, like without a hack. No real trailer queens, they all took to the road. These people are rabid about their chosen perversion. I was kinda amazed at how many showed up in big ticket Class A motorhomes. Is there some connection?
