I continue to struggle with wanting to hack my 2015 C-5 while already owning a Ural.  Where as the Ural looks and is functional I see the RE with a sidecar as truly a piece of art.  I see lots of people interested in adding a sidecar, some going back years even.  Who here has hacked their RE five or ten years ago and is still enjoying it?  What ares your long term observations??

Don't know, but I've always & still do want one. I just haven't found one that's priced lower than my bike, around here they're just not money wise.

 And the people who have them tend to keep them. That says something.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

I would really love to have a chair strapped to my C5, but the cost, even for 2nd hand, makes me reluctant.
It would be nice to have a go of one first and see if it's worth the effort and if I even enjoy it as much as riding solo.
It could be that a ride out to Watsonian Squire is on the cards.

Well worth it. Also seeing as you're in the U.K. here's an alternative, all you have to do is make your own bespoke body :)

Having sold hundreds of sidecars for the RE I think Hack riders are a special breed. They seem to be a very dedicated lot and have a lot of fun with their rigs. Many travel greater distances than I would have once thought
