Isn't that what the UK outfits look like to us?

Or is that just how they appear to the Vogons as they approach?

Here's a question to ponder.
This vehicle has the front wheel in line with one of the rear. I does not have any wheel lead on the wheel that's not inline with the front. The motor is in the area that would be the cargo area if it was a sidecar.
So trike or sidecar ?

Well now the fun starts....

Getting an idea of how this is gonna look when mated together. Either I am gonna paint it or put some kind of vinyl wrap on it......just looks too white up against all that black and blue.

How about a 'Tri-car'? I think that if the front wheel is in line with the rear driving wheel then it's a sidecar, however if both rear wheels are driven (with or without a diff) then it's a trike - or in this case a tri-car, mutch like the Scott Sociable seen somewhere on this forum, can't remember where, what do you think?

NitroMax, did you drive the MZ to the Tauerntreffen from Holland?
I still need to ride the Jawa enough to gain trust in it.

How does the MZ deal with the sidecar? Are other drivers patient enough? I have trouble here with the locals rolling along with 60-80km/h...

No, didn't go to the Tauerntreffen.

My MZ ( 300 cc ) copes very well with it's sidecar(platform with plastic case).

Indeed other drivers are a bit impatient sometimes but I have only driven the MZhack on secundairy roads. It can go up to 95/100 km/h with wind in the back.

I've just purchased one of those round trucksigns with "80" on it which I will screw to the back of the sidecar so they might understand that that's about topspeed in some cases.

Since I actually only drive in bad weather like snow or when it's slippery most of the time I'm faster that most cars
