Strong Bond, thank you for you post. Your points are taken, I too enjoy the build threads especially those folk from 'down under'. Some great builds here in North America also.

I do have comment though. Folks have 'adventure touring' on what you might consider lesser bikes and sidecar outfits forever. I know a lurker on this site who took an old BMW R90, added a Velorex and a big gas tank and rode over 100,000 miles all over North America. Including lots of dirt and gravel. No fancy farkles, a term I've come to loath.

My point is I'd say it is better to go do the riding with whatever you can put together than sit home because your denali/trans Africa,round the world pannier /luggage rack kit hasn't arrived in the mail. Folks have been doing this stuff forever on the cheap and the lowly Velo sidecar can do the job,,,,,,not as exciting,,,,but adequate.
