Forgot to say... first time I died in a 'bike accident I was taken to hospital in my mate's outfit so they are obviously better at transporting bodies than solo 'bikes!

Have you ever seen trials sidecars? Mad things they are - my brother dislocated his shoulder falling out of one at Mallory a few years back hehe

Many moons back (before we all grew up) - the test for a quick 'bike was to race up Cheddar Gorge. For a long time (even tho' I had a Zed thou' streetfighter and a mate had a CCM Supermoto) the best time was set by a Beamish Suzuki with a trials chair - the rider and passenger must have had massive faith in each other!

Given the choice of a combination or trike when I couldn't ride a bike anymore, i'd take the combination everytime. They look right in the same way trikes look like spaz chariots.

You need to actually ride(drive) a proper original WW2 Zundapp KS750 outfit before you say that....especially off-road where you can use the locking diff and low range gearbox (I admit I've not driven one, only had a pax ride, but it was an amazing bit of kit)
German engineering masterclass of the time.

A genuine KS750 outfit is on my lottery win Top 10 bike garage list smile

He's a bit of a star. I took a mate to watch some old bike racing at Snetterton earlier this year, and the Westons (who own/run that bike - there's a whole family of them racing on this outfit and a yellow one the same at various times, so it's hard to tell who's on which one) were lifting the sidecar wheel and wheelying it out of the final chicane hehe

I'd love to have a go at 'proper' big wheeler sidecar racing. I've a few mates that race modern F2 stuff and even they consider this lot mentaillists, which is a bit of the old pot/kettle, black syndrome laugh
