Frankly I would not recommend this as you can get in trouble real quick. Much depends on the outfit itself of course. A very stiff sidecar suspension may be able to hold it's own especially if it is a light sidecar ...however....even then it can get you in trouble quickly.

Dana don't you have a Friendship I sidecar on your GS bike that still has the torsion suspension on it? Quite a different animal than many of these other reader's outfits. Wheel lead also comes into play.

Like you disclamer ..lol.

When a rear wheel lifts it happens quickly. It may usually just come right back down. I have flipped the bike over the sidecar as I probably have mentioned here before and it would make a good video. Watching the video from a hospital bed may not be that much fun though
