First Ride with Family in Triumph Bonneville/CSM Rig





First time out with the Triumph/CSM sidecar with the family. All had fun, did a ride from Warner Springs (Southern California) to Anza (not far from Warner Springs).

I'd like to think that it was everything and more than everyone expected.

Have fun

It must have been fun and everyone looks happy and all the regular curmudgeons are here and in agreement it's a rare thing

I'm in Wildomar, not too far from you and make frequent runs to Julian.

Had a Gl1500 with a sidecar but sold it a few years ago. Looking to get into another rig. Where did you get yours and who set it up for you?

Looks good and looks like the family likes it!

I got it on ebay (picked up in PA) from the original owner who had it built/setup by Claude (CSM). Have about 4k miles now on the bike and really like it. New to sidecars but super impressed with the setup.

7yr Old: Thought gear was too hot, it was the best I could find locally (Cycle Gear) but it doesnt vent. Good for protection but doesnt vent. Falls asleep after 20 minutes... glad she is in the sidecar instead of on the back... Need to get bluetooth headsets so I can answer "how much longer" instead of having to stop to get that question. Seemed to enjoy it overall but wasnt a fan of earplugs. I need to research kid in sidecar safety: seatbelts vs none (this has none), laying down flat vs forcing kid to sit upright, etc.

Better Half (Fiancee): Really enjoyed it. Also road on the back of the KTM 990ADV and in the sidecar and tried riding the NC700X all this weekend. She liked riding on the back the 990 best and is excited for me to get the 1190ADVR running (darn battery died this weekend). Didnt fit in the sidecar (she is 6' 1") and is a little cramped on the Bonneville but not too bad. The sidecar has a fuel tank that makes the 2 up back seat riders right foot rest in a weird position. Bike needs more storage if we are going to camp off of it. probably just a large rear top case should do it.

Me: I had many thoughts that this is about as good as it gets. A great looking gal that is willing to let me take both her and her 7yr old daughter out for a ride (after getting all the right protective hear) on a motorcycle. I enjoyed the 2 up on the 990 also but was worried watching her learn to ride on the NC. Not that she was doing bad (she was doing great), just a little concerned. Now that she has clutch/throttle control down we are going to sign her up for the MSF class.

What gear did you end up getting from Cycle Gear? I'm trying to outfit my six year old, and not having much luck (and don't want to get the Bilt kids stuff, primarily because I am worried it will be way too warm for summer.

If you're fiancee is 6'1" - her daughter, judging from the pic - must be closing in on 5'. Seems like that would open a lot of options as she should be able to wear some of the small or XS women's gear that's available. (And if she's 6'1", how tall are you??)

Great pics - very nice looking rig - glad you're all enjoying it
