I've had this vision in my head for a year or so and I've found a couple of dead links and a photo or two in my searches for any info. I want to mount my 12' kayak to a sidecar frame, ride it from here to the pacific in the summer of 2012 and hit as many lakes as I can, visit relatives, then turn around and head home. I want to kayak in the summer AND ride. Trying to tie the two together. I see some sort of Sidecar "TAT-ish" thing in my future, only with a pseudo-planned route with lakes as daily or semi-daily destinations and half days spent paddling around the lake. I have no sidecar experience whatsoever.....yet. I have wanted one for many years and I'm thinking this could be a project for next winter. I may either mount it to my KLR or buy a different bike for a tug, maybe another KLR. But, since I have no sidecar experience, I have to ask, is a 12' boat shaped tub the worst idea ever?
