First off, I have to kinda agree with the sentiment that if something isn't your cup of tea, that's fine... Not everyone likes doing the same thing, riding the same bike, two wheels vs. three vs. four... But you don't need to jump into the middle of someone's thread and piss all over it. I rarely jump in with comments like this, but after doing a little research, I felt motivated to do so...

Looking through the thread where the OP came from, it actually becomes a bit more disturbing to find that what it may appear to be is a physically challenged rider adding a sidecar to his bike so they can continue riding. Granted, this is a big assumption on my part, nor do I ask for anyone to confirm this hypothesis as it is a personal choice. However, I say kudos to anyone who wants to live life how they wish, obstacles and naysayers be damned!

My $.02... Take it or leave it.

To quote a well known high performance sidecar builder and rider, Bill Ballou:
" When I get to old to ride sidecars I will probably get a solo bike"

By the way you don't have to pitch a sidecar into a turn at 150 to get a thrill out of one....LOL. After racing and building sprint cars and midgets for many years today sidecars are my 'fix'. Lotta fun at any speed on and off road. Do like the sidecar racing though and only wish there was more of it around.

That's really cool, BTW.

I am sure you can do a left or right mount but I bet Bad Cat is sulking in sheer fear at the thought of you joining the ranks of F1 Sidecar racing with the Ural.

Wait until he finds out that I live in the town with and personally know two of the world-record-setting Ural pilots from the Siberian Speed Team. He'll really be quaking then.

I'm glad we could hijack this thread with some real sidecar silliness.

All the best,
Chris

I came here to read out of curiosity, cause honestly my sentiments lined up pretty well with the OP. (My husband keeps wanting to build a sidecar for the dogs, and I point out we already have a convertible for the dogs, which they don't particularly like either.) But after watching Bad Cat's video, all I can say is wow. That's awesome!

Sell the convertible and build a side car for three.

Would never work in our household. Both of us refuse to 'ride' on anyone's backseat (or sidecar for that matter). That's why we have his/hers KLRs. But I do have a new appreciation for the three-wheel inclined.

So as you can see, It would seem I've done you hacks a favor and you owe me an apology
BTW Can some remove this duct tape now?
Please?

That's kinda of like thanking the urinal puck for being a target so we don't piss on our boots, isn't it?

The duct tape comes off after the ride is over and not one minute before!
