Why was my sidecar alone, among so many other 3-wheelers?
Anyway, a grand day out.

It's fun to watch a bike show on your side of the pond, not much different I suppose than ours here in the States but still fun to watch.

As far as trike's go I'll take a nice sidecar rig over them anytime. I'm a bit prejudice when it comes to trikes, but a well sorted hack is more versatile and handles better as well as having a lineage that goes back many decades.

I know trikes are very popular, but I like the quirks of a sidecar... different to turn left or right, braking pulls it round and so on. I wonder how long it would take me to get used to riding one in America or Europe when it's on the other side haha!!!
