It would be interesting to know people's different reasons for getting in to sidecars, why they ended up here. Before I had one I didn't realize that they were still pretty common. Didn't know at all about their many uses. I wanted to do long term travel with my GF. She insisted on greater comfort and more storage space (for clothes!) than what could be done two up on a two wheeler. I still get to be in the elements on a bike and she gets to carry a few pairs of shoes and more than one change of clothes. Win win! How about you?
