My way of thinking is if you can break it you will always find a way to build a stronger one.

Plus with the amount of times you may use it, wouldn't it be easier to try and rig up an electric motor on the sidecar wheel that can be engaged at a push of a button (something I've been thinking of myself). Not only that isn't that what passengers are for, getting you out of bogs
The wife thinks the same way as you 3legs.

Thanks. Great idea 3legs.The electric motor would work also. I have plenty of space under the seat. Would be easy to drive a belt from the motor to the wheel axel. It might be a pain to get the speed of the motor the same as the rear wheel .
I think you could have some fun with this

Thanks Evel Knievel. It has been a great ride so far .
A lot more fun to ride for the wife and myself, than when the bike was solo.

Cheers Ian.
