Elefant Hacks


In my heart of darkness I'm still a Ducati fan and long time Elefant owner I was wandering the internet and came upon these very cool Elefants.

With 300+ pages there was no way I could read it all before bed, so just a few questions; can you buy these or are they home made for the most part? I found a few websites but they all looked "Mickey Moused" and couldn't be sure if they were offering a ligit product. Where do you guys go to get plans or kits? I don't see to many here in Nova Scotia are they illegal here?

Yes, sidecars are illegal in Nova Scotia. In fact, they are illegal everywhere in Canada. If you should see one on a public road you should immediately inform the provincial police or the RCMP depending on where it happens.

Any websites you stumble on that offer sidecars or sidecar kits are clearly trying to scam you. Stay away! They are also illegal.



PS--you posted in a picture thread. If you have a specific question you should start a new thread and post it up in "Hacks". Other members will give you serious and sober replies.

We had 7 sidecarists attend the Rich Mountain Rendezvous near Mena, Arkansas last weekend, including 2 touring rigs, 2 scooters, 2 Urals and 4 dogs. Incessant rain on Friday soured my camera and waterlogged my phone, but I did get a few poor quality phone pics on Saturday;

Holding up traffic on the bridge over Two Mile Creek:



Uralist Schdoja and I ventured down a few gravel roads to cross the bridge over the Mountain Fork River:



This road continues along the river for a couple of miles:





We then traveled NFS Skyline Drive up the South face of Rich Mountain -- Shcdoja at the Arkansas/Oklahoma border about 1/2 up:

Got the linky ... I'll send it to my GF

We were out bike shopping for her today but she seems to have a mental block for sidecars

Maybe this will get her attention

Kind regards from Kabul

You guys will understand this....

One last Dnepr ride for my friend...usually we were both laughing like lunatics at how slow we were going while taking turns scareing each other (....what else do you do on something with no almost no brakes, suspect handling and so little power?).


That's all I have to say about that.
