cool story, those sidecars really are the best, I have ridden a Dnieper with a sidecar, same bike I think but without that neat earls fork or the disc brake, did you add that yourself or do they come with it, is the bike still a 650 or did they bump it up, I was working for a motorcycle dealer at the time and he decided to deal in those bikes, they had these weird russian made carbs that wouldn't stop leaking, finally put german bings on the bikes which seemed to fix them, the sidecar was the best piece of the bike, I remember riding on the westside of okanagan lake before it was paved and bouncing up and down generally shaking the hell out of myself, my wife who was like 7 or 8 months pregnant sitting in the car telling me how smooth the ride was
