47. Born 1964 came home from hospital in my dads sidecar, went every where in it until I was 18 then got my own outfit. Had one ever since, (6 in total). The wife had her own at 38 (should I have said that?) and is on her 2nd outfit now.

I'm just curious as to the age of most the sidecarist on here. I'll start it with 25.

72 years old been riding54 years so far and still enjoy every ride even the crap one,s are good once you get back home.

I'll be 63 next month, been riding for 50 years if you count the mini & dirt bikes. A few years bikeless due to marraige & kid! 2 weeks with this rig, about a year with the one I had 30 years ago.

Two questions for you sidecar freaks. How do you manage sidewinds? Remember having seen a Ural with sidecar gone off the road and downhill at a tunnel exit in the route from Santiago to Mendoza. And, why don't you just get a car if you are taking the best part of motorcycling out of your experience?
