I see a lotta guys w/ Harleys and a velorex plastics tied on.

Me? I ride within my limits.

I know jets fly. I'll even get in one to travel. I don't care how it does it... Just so it does it w/ out crashing!
Less weight on the side car wheel, in proportion to the total weight of the outfit.
It moves the C of G closer to the bike centre line, with the ease of flying the chair that that entails.
It also raises the C of G as well, generally not a good thing.
