Royal Enfield and sidecar - Possible choices ???
« on: February 24, 2012, 08:12:17 am »
I have a choice between a Bullet 500 with Cosy sidecar or a Classic 500 with an Inder sidecar.  Both new.  Does anybody have any suggestion especially concerning these 2 different sidecars or with bike does the sidecar thing better.

What model years are the two bikes? US model names seem to be different from the Canadian names.      If they are the same year go for the one with a square rear tire if possible. 

As far as the car.   I have Cozy Rocket with trunk access from behind the seat. (they make em both ways)



I like it because I can get in the trunk even if I have stuff tied to the luggage rack,  I also decided to leave the windshield in the garage as I like the cleaner lines of it without.   

The tail light and side marker that come with the Cozy were sub par in my opinion,  I replaced them with modern LEDs.   

I was looking into an Inder as some of them have a brake for the third wheel but they were not available at the time.   I have heard they are narrower and a bit more finicky of a setup.  Not really a good thing IMO.
