Lots of different reason on this thread!!

off road riding in loose sand is no fun on my R100 GS.

So this is a great way to have 3 wheels on the ground.

But riding a hack requires totally different style than a bike - body English is important -it's fun!!

Also see a lot of medical conditions that make a hack the only way to go.

My condition had a stroke in 2009 at the age of 49. Big dirt biker had 6 motorcycles.

Stroke is like a heart attack but a brain attack instead - spent a month in hospital relearning to walk / talk / use my arms.

Balance is an issue.

Started riding my bicycle after 3 months. So the sidecar is my mule gets me around is fun still different than riding my GS or any motorcycle. I can and do ride my on/off road GS most of the time and mountain bike.

Gotta ride so the sidecar is last resort - sidecars are great for off road stability.

That's why I ride / have a sidecar. Been riding motorcycles since I was 15 it's in my blood!!!
