+1 on that! First Bonnie rig I've seen. Very intriguing. I'm tip-toeing around the idea, now that our son is 4 1/2, of getting a hack. Figure I'll want at least a year of practice before taking him out in it. Not much traction for the idea with my wife though.

Back to more pictures....!

Rob, my wife doesn't like to ride on my GSA, and when it comes to the kids - no way, but everyone wants to ride in the side hack.

I was reading some stats somewhere, I can probably get my hands on them again if I really want to, and they showed accident mortality and morbidity for sidecar drivers /100000 km to be basically the same as driving in a car. Riding a standard motorbike is 3-10x higher than for a car. Those #'s are from memory but are going to be pretty close.

If she's stressed about safety, sidecar rides are a totally different game than riding a bike.

Cheers,

the other Rob

The Rat Car

It may be a rat, but I like it anyway, and it got me laid more than once this past summer, so I guess that makes it, well, priceless...

I like this stuff, plus flat black is easy to keep.

Can you comment at all on how it drives, how much it cost, etc?

Lovely

dc
Brand new so not enough time in the saddle to really comment on how it drives - so far no complaints. As to cost, I ordered the sidecar from the UK thru sidestrider in CA - prices are on their website plus you need to add shipping (to the USA in my case, ouch!) and installation (the latter by Claude Stanley at C. Stanley Motorsports who did an excellent job).
