Kick ass! Thanks for the opportunity to take your new rig out for a spin. It was a great upper body workout. It was frickin' COLD on the way home to Napa though. brrrrrr... I look forward to the next outing.
That's the best sidecar set up I've ever seen and I tend to like the vintage stuff. Looks like a great touring combination.
Has anybody ever taken a sidecar on a long trip? Like 400 miles in a day? Is it comfortable for the car rider?
My wife and daughter ride in my sidecar regularly. We as a family have gone up to 650 miles per day. In competition we did 1400 miles in one day last summer. Mine is a XS1100 Yamaha with a sidecar of my own design, but the Texas Sidecar is more than capable of that kind of mileage. The Burgman sure looks like a SWEET rig all set up like that. Good show.
Great rig there. How much Toe-in did you set it up with? You really should buy or borrow a copy fo david Houghs book on how to pilot a sidecar rig, it'll help your learning curve a LOT.
Did you hook up the sidecar brake? Does the hack need any ballast when not occupied by a passenger? or is it heavy enough to not need it?
