1%er's may be?

1%er's or maybe 1/2%er's. We need a patch with a sidecar on it that reads "1/2%" I think the 1%er is taken and would not want to use it, that might up set the out law bikers. You know what I'm sayin. It is probably even less than 1/2% of motorcyclist drive sidecar rigs, don't think there is any way to know. My rig is registured as just a motorcycle.

Fresno Ural

I drive my green Patrol daily for my commute to the downtown Federal building. I bought it last January from Ski at TriQuest Cycles in Santa Clara. It has just over 3000 miles on it.

If you visit the original Starbucks near Logans Steakhouse on Friday nights you'll see a red Tourist, Bear from Coarsegold.
I haven't seen any others around except for a small scooter with a sidecar.

I rode BMWs daily for 15 years but have always been intrigued by Hacks and have looked at Urals since 1996. My wife loves riding in the sidecar so when we knew we were moving to Fresno we decided that the new rig would be a Ural.

There'll be a white one on the road in the Fresno/Hanford area around the beginning of the year. Otherwise however, I haven't seen any other three-wheeled bikes down there, just a couple trikes.

Saw another today while passing through Wesley Chapel, FL. It was a cruiser rig, nice white sidecar but I didn't make out the bike. Hah, I've seen more in the past few weeks than I have in the past few years! (I should get out more often lol )

On 10/25 I was riding my GS on the Natchez Trace Parkway and saw a Gear Up heading north in the other lane.

Here's an idea

perhaps someone can set up one of those maps where you put in your address in if you want to be a part of it, and then anyone can see where you live. That way, if someone was interested in meeting other sidecar-ists in the area, they would know where to look.

Super, but I do not know how to, so I will start the old fashion way with a Mapquest scan.



We are located in a mile radius, in NY state near the CT border, about 1 hour north of NY city.

I'm a little pissed at myself. Today (St. Patricks Day) I'm going south on Rt 101 near Yachats Oregon in my cage and here comes a sidecar going north. As it passes me I get enough of a glance to see it's a 1100GS rig! I shoulda pulled a U-y and chased him down! I mean, you hardly ever see sidecar rigs. And certainly not on the 101 in March in Oregon (cold, windy). But then it's a GS rig? What?

I should chased him down.
