Seems a shame to lumber a bike like the Scrambler with a sidecar. Then again, anyone who enjoys riding a sidecar has to have a bit of a screw loose.

I've ridden one, scariest bike experience of my life.

Whilst a passenger can 'ride' in a sidecar, the operator is said to 'drive' a sidecar rig.

Ride a horse but drive a wagon team.

Anyway, driving a hack is a balance of asymmetry. Unintentionally flying the sidecar is potentially the crux of the matter. This can lead to loss of control and head-on collisions, by inexperienced operators.

Not a great idea. Driving a sidecar is like taking your riding lawn mower down the road at 70 mph. I have a BMW RT with a sidecar. It is a sad way to ruin the performance of a great motorcycle.

That combo was on show at the NEC bike show in November, I had a really go look at it and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the side car and the way it was mounted to the scrambler.
As a 5year old I used to get collected from school by an auntie who rode a Scott with a sport side car who regularly put the fear of God in me, I suppose it was the start of my motorcycle addiction 68 years ago.
