Nothing is harder on a vehicle than riding in the sand on the beach. RUST will happen in places you didn't even know existed.

Uncertain about the off road capabilities, let alone where to stow the camping equipment.

Years ago Cycle World or one of the US mags ran a fantasy piece about how a wealthy titled man would possibly do a motorcycle tour. They decided that an MV in full sport kit and the luggage would follow in a 5 series BMW sedan and that its driver would need to be a motorcyclist also in case of rain so they could switch.

I recall the Cycle World tale at a time when the term, "Gentleman's Express" also featured in the US motorcycle media. The idea of a following four wheeled pannier emerged. Sadly, in my humble, the trend took hold with some dutiful partners now carrying "essentials" in the motor.

One of the sadest bits about motorcycling is they became recreational vehicles ! In the US there are many 4-6 y/o HD's for sale with less than a thousend miles a year on them. I used to ride to work as long as it was 40 degrees I worked second shift and often rode home late PM in the 20's.I better quit I'm starting to rant ! DB

Yikes!

Too much "ballast" in the wrong place is a bad idea with cutting edge sidecar opereration!

I wonder what the next frame would be if there was a burst of shots - my guess is front tire pointing up and young lady losing a lot of tan. On second thought, glad I don't have to see that!

The leaf springs on the Harley sidecar bodies ( actual sidecar chassis is rigid) 'can' do weird things.
