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.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.
I've considered a Vespa and Sidecar. When my oldest son was at home, his buddies were into restoring old Vespas. This photo shows one of the reasons I want a sidecar, for my Akita. And also for winter riding. I may eventually end up with a Ural.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.
