Great Thread, One of the guys who races in my classic class was swinging on a (semi) modern at Wangas....their brakes failed and they crashed it into a CONTAINER ........
Apparenly all the brakes on a sidecar are linked to one pedal....if that fails....eek.
Bike is a mess but rider is ok if a bit battered.....swinger saw it coming and bailed out....( he now owes a dozen beer, must be the loca currency down there)
I'm surprised you can take alcohol in....and as for the guys on the elevating platform...( I'm the H and S guy where I work)....
Can't say I'd be keen to ride the Beemer around there, even in the dry....all that steet funiture and variable road surface.
