    It is a fun ride but the car is not big enough for a full grown adult. The bike has the power but the car is made for grandkids or you favorite dog.

    I tried a sidecar once many years ago and promptly turned it over on a sharp bend. That was my one and only experience of them. Having said that I believe that power characteristics of the NC motor are well suited to sidecar use.

    I recently met a Woman with a 300 Vespa and She had a Watsonian (I think) sidecar attached. It was added solely for the purpose of bringing her two Labrador dogs with Her on her travels locally.

    Sidecars are a different animal and they can be turned over. I keep 50 to 60 pounds of ballast in this car. It gives me comfort and confidence. I take my time on curves and I rarely get to 65 mph on the straights. Like anything else practice counts. The NC is a pretty good fit for this particular car.

    Its a really nice outfit though and I think that once the word gets around we could see more NC's being used for this purpose. I totally agree with adding ballast. When I flipped mine there was no ballast in the car and I had not yet learned to accelerate around the sidecar so to speak.

    A Friend of mine owned a Kawasaki 1300 with a sizeable sidecar attached. Back then She used it as her daily transport to shops etc etc. I remember once travelling behind her through a sharp curve int he road and the sidecar wheel was about 6 inches up off the road through the curve. She wasn't even aware of this, but She was extremely confident on it. Fortunately she never flipped it.

    We might as well keep the subject going.........

    Why would you do the Ice Run? - YouTube

    I have a kind of hankering after a Ural with sidecar wheel drive. Not sure if I will ever get one .........
