I wasn't sure if I should laugh or be scared for the guy with the sidecar. Shocked

What's wrong with this picture?

This is the way to ride a chair. Even if you don't want, the laws of physic makes it that a sidecar will lift when turning right. Check when driving your car and you will understand why the chair has the tendency to lift. When you turn right, your car has the tendency to lean on the left (on the opposite way of a solo bike). This is the same for a sidecar.
Oh, I am talking of a chair attached to the RIGHT side Smile

Why do you think I sh&*t in my pants twice during the last 2 months?
I forgot about it and I have to find a good monkey!

All humorous, but that exact same thing happened to a friend riding solo on his first ride on new Triumph up a pass near me, and the sidecar came across the road like that. Lady rider was killed outright and he had severe brain damage, ended up between the sidecar and the bike, had to be cut out. Bloody dangerous things in the wrong hands. Lady's husband was behind her on a single, can't imagine what he felt.
Sidecars not welcome round ear.

RT,
Of course sidecars are dangerous in the wrong hands....as are massive sofas being ridden by aging codgers who were too scared to buy a bike when they weren't socially acceptable.
Or rocket sports bikes ridden by young blokes in thongs ( Flip flops, jandals latschen etc) and a head full of ambition and testosterone..
My nephew recently bought a KTM that has 178bhp. Who needs that many horsepower???
USW...ad infinitum.....
I wonder if there is one member here who has NOT had a friend killed on a bike.
And yes...head injuries are the worst.
I spent some time in Mt Wilga rehab centre after my amputation.

There is nothing wrong with that picture, seems to me if you want to present yourself as an imposing figure to the other rider you would make yourself as big as possible, and it sure looks like he succeeded. Now a man on a kneeler well thats different init

I don't see anything wrong the solo bike is nicely lined up for the apex and on line.

Oh the sidecar! yes well if the stupid passenger would just cooperate instead of hiding under the seat would hang their but over the edge then all would be OK. You ever only take a fool like that for a blast in the chair once.

If you want to keep the chair's wheel on the ground, you need this type of sidecar:



Otherwise, look how easy you can lift the chair affraid
