Sidecars at Popham

I paid a visit to the sidecar club rally at Popham airfield today, well it was a nice day for a ride...





















Nice Coleman stove stand, I wonder where you get them from?

Why sidecars fit the earls forks (if that is the name)? For increased weight at the front or comfort or steering ... ? What's wrong with the normal forks?
Always nice places and pictures btw.
cheers

Due to geometry changes, the amount of force required on the bars is drastically reduced. Furthermore the constant sideload will kill normal telescopic forks. I.e. wear out all the bushes inside, this even applies to very small and light sidecars, e.g. like my SR500 with a Velorex, but gets a lot faster with big bikes. I used to run an XS750 hack with a Dnepr tug and the forks went from new to completely dead within approx. 10000km.

Some nice pics, I'd have to say!

Cheers,
Greg
